Vistara, a joint venture of Tata group and Singapore Airlines, operated its first non-stop flight to Paris CDG (Charles de Gaulle) airport yesterday. Under the air bubble agreement between India and Europe, Vistara will fly twice a week between the two cities – on Wednesdays and Sundays. Bookings for the flights are open on all channels, including Vistara’s website, mobile app, and through travel agents.
Speaking on this occasion, Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara, said, “Paris is one of the most popular destinations in Europe and CDG an important airport for any airline intending to serve the region. Given the strong economic and cultural ties there is a high demand for direct connectivity between India and France, and therefore Paris fits our network very well. We are delighted to expand our global footprint as we bring India’s finest airline to Paris.”
The direct connectivity between the two cities also gives the airline the opportunity to further build their presence in Europe.
