Full-service carrier Vistara on Thursday said it has boosted service between Delhi and London Heathrow for the winter schedule.
The airline is operating these flights as part of the bilateral “transport bubble" agreement between India and the UK.
“The airline has increased frequency from the current 4x weekly to 5x weekly flights from November 21, further ramping up to 7x weekly or daily flights effective December 1," the airline said in a statement.
“Vistara’s Delhi-London route will continue to be serviced by its brand-new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft…."
Besides, it added that flight timings have been retimed for customers’ convenience, effective October 25.
Catering to its international flyers, Vistara recently partnered with Axis Bank to launch a co-branded forex card – ‘Axis Bank Club Vistara Forex Card’. This is also the first-ever collaboration by a bank and an Indian airline for a co-branded forex card. Designed to cater to the needs of international travelers, the card offers exciting benefits such as the option of loading up to 16 currencies on a single card, locked-in exchange rates and accruing 3 CV Points on every USD 5 (or equivalent value) spent. Customers also get awarded 500 CV Points as a Welcome Bonus on signing up.
The card proposition offers a complimentary Base membership to Club Vistara. The earned Club Vistara Points can be redeemed for Award Flights starting at 2000 CV Points and Upgrade Awards starting at 500 CV Points. Customers can choose to retain balance on the card, convert it to another currency for their next holiday or encash the amount. Additionally, the card provides emergency assistance services from TripAssist, thereby providing both flexibility and safety. At present, Club Vistara members can earn and redeem CV Points when travelling on other partner airlines such as Singapore Airlines, Japan Airlines, Silk Air and United Airlines.
