Vistara’s Receives First A320 Neo

Vistara welcomed its first purchased Airbus A320neo powered by CFM LEAP engines, strengthening its operational assets and further growing its modern fleet. The aircraft, registered VT-TQE, arrived in Delhi recentl from Airbus’ production facility in Toulouse, France.

It is one of the 13 Airbus A320neo that Vistara had purchased in 2018 as part of a larger order totaling 50 aircraft from the Airbus A320neo Family, including the Airbus A321neo aircraft as well. The new set of A320neo aircraft that Vistara has been adding to its fleet come with higher range capability (77 tonnes of maximum take-off weight), enabling the airline to fly longer regional international routes without payload restrictions.

This addition to Vistara’s fleet takes the total count of the airline’s owned aircraft to three. Vistara had also purchased six Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft for long-haul international operations, two of which are already in service.

Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara, said, “The Airbus A320 is an integral part of our fleet and growth story, and this particular aircraft is, indeed, special. It mirrors the maturity that Vistara has achieved in the Indian aviation industry in a short span of time, continuing to steadily grow in scale, size and operational assets. The new aircraft underlines our focus on continuous enhancement of fleet to provide world-class flying experience to our customers.”
