Soon to be merged full-service carrier Vistara has announced its expansion in the Middle East market with the launch of a new daily, non-stop flight to Oman’s capital, Muscat. The city would be the airline’s fourth destination in the Gulf region with Vistara adding a third Gulf city to its network in the last four months.

The airline has focused on expanding its presence in the region this year with the launch of services to Jeddah and Abu Dhabi in August and October, respectively. Vistara also operates daily flights to Dubai to/from Mumbai.

The inaugural flight to Muscat departed from Mumbai at 2000 Hours (IST) on Monday and arrived in Muscat at 2135 Hours (GST). With this, Vistara also becomes the only carrier to offer the choice of Premium Economy class on the route, in addition to Business and Economy class.


Addressing the workforce of Vistara, Vinod Kannan candidly talked to the airline’s employees and mentioned that the merger is an exciting prospect for the combined entity and the growth of Indian aviation. “We are on this journey together and will emerge stronger at the end of it,” he mentioned in the communication.

There has been a consistent increase in demand for travel between India and the Gulf region and Vistara’s Middle Eastern routes have been performing well, the airline said in a statement.

Sharing his thoughts, Vinod Kannan, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara, said, “The launch of operations to Muscat is in line with our goal to steadily enhance our footprint in the Middle East. The firm bilateral relationship and robust cultural and economic ties between India and states in the Gulf region have given great impetus to our growth plans, and our successful business on the other Middle Eastern routes is a testament to that. We are excited to bring India’s finest full-service carrier to Muscat with daily connectivity from Mumbai and are confident that Vistara with its award-winning product and services will be a much-preferred carrier on this route as well.”
