Vistara receives Air Operator Permit

Vistara yesterday received the Air Operator Permit (AOP) from the regulatory authority, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), allowing the airline to begin commercial operations in the country. The AOP is the final step in a highly technical and complex compliance process. Headquartered in New Delhi, Vistara will begin operations with its fleet of Airbus A320-200s and will soon make an announcement on the start of sales, routes, and schedules, as per a release.

Commenting on the occasion, Prasad Menon, Chairman, Vistara, said, “Receiving the AOP is a key milestone for Vistara. It is a reflection of the dedication and determination of our entire team and we are all looking forward to the first flight with excitement. We are aware of the expectations we have to live up to and look forward to shaping a success story in Indian aviation with the realisation of this dream.”

Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO, Vistara, said, “I am delighted that we have successfully cleared the final requirement and secured the AOP. We are thankful to the Ministry of Civil Aviation for their support and guidance during the entire process. All our energies now are going to be concentrated on fulfilling the Vistara brand promise. Our focus on customer service excellence coupled with unique product offerings will ensure seamless travel experience to our customers.”
