Vistara, India’s finest full-service carrier today unveiled its 22nd aircraft, an Airbus A320neo with an extraordinary retro- livery (paint scheme) that is the first of its kind in India, along with a historic aircraft registration number and a retro-uniform that complements the livery.
The livery recreates the one used by Tata Air Lines, India’s very first airline that was founded by JRD Tata, in the 1940s, and the aircraft also bears the registration VT-ATV that was originally used by a Tata Air Lines DC-3 aircraft. This striking retro-livery is also a celebration of 150 years of the Tata group, and it reclaims for Vistara the space once held by the pioneers of aviation in India, Tata Sons, and the Father of Indian Aviation, Shri JRD Tata.
As part of this celebration, Vistara also unveiled a special retro-uniform for select cabin crew, inspired by the “golden days of aviation” of the 1950s and 60s, to be worn on special occasions starting with the aircraft’s inaugural flight on 5th September 2018 from Delhi to Mumbai. The inaugural flight will also feature a menu with JRD Tata’s favourite dishes, as remembered by senior chefs at Taj Hotels. It includes Cheddar Cheese and Onion Omelette, Crêpe au Champignon, Meat Medley, Waldorf Salad, Minestrone Soup, Herb Roast Chicken, Goan Prawn Curry and Crème Caramel.
As the highest-rated Indian airline on Skytrax and TripAdvisor, and winner of several “Best in Industry” awards, Vistara has consistently raised the bar for operations and service delivery in the Indian aviation industry in a short span of less than four years. The airline today serves 22 destinations with over 800 flights a week and a fleet of 22 aircraft.
