Taking the total number of flights to take off from the city to 21, new domestic carrier Vistara, a joint venture of Tata and Singapore Airlines, launched its Chandigarh-Delhi flight on Monday.
The new flight will serve as a connecting flight to Bengaluru, Pune, Mumbai, Bhubaneswar and Ahmedabad and to international destinations from Delhi as well.
International travellers from the city will be connected to global destinations, via Vistara’s hub at Terminal 3 in New Delhi, making it a convenient connection to travel overseas with 12 global airline partners of Vistara.
Vistara chief strategy and commercial officer Sanjiv Kapoor said, “The recently inaugurated integrated passenger terminal and the government’s plan to launch international operations from here will further attract more travellers to Chandigarh.”
