The present plan is to augment the fleet strength to 70 by December 2023. He was talking to The Hindu in connection with the launch of direct daily flight between New Delhi and Coimbatore.

Currently, Vistara is operating services to 31 domestic destinations. The airline will launch Mumbai-Coimbatore and Bengaluru–Coimbatore (twice daily) services on May 27 and June 3 respectively. On the International sector, Vistara at present has services to London, Paris and Frankfurt in Europe and in addition it has services to Singapore, Dubai, Bangkok, Dhaka and Kathmandu and is about to launch its services to Maldives as well.

Vistara pins hopes on Coimbatore sector because the city hosts a large number of textile and other allied industries and infrastructure projects that are coming up.
