India: Vistara to end its journey after merging with Air India to become one-full service carrier which will be together known as Air India. Earlier, the airline’s chief executive officer Campbell Wilson said that Vistara is well known in the Indian market but when it comes to the outside world, Air India has wide recognition due to its 90 year long service.
“Vistara clearly has a very strong recognition in the Indian market…but if you look outside the Indian market, clearly Air India is much more recognized and has a 90-year history. So, the future full-service carrier will be called Air India, but we would like to retain and celebrate some of the Vistara heritage in that new manifestation,” Wilson said.
Further, he said “The intention is to have one full-service airline and one low-cost airline in the group. The full-service airline will be an amalgam of Air India and Vistara,”. Vistara had started its journey in January 2015 and at that time it was a joint venture between Tata sons and Singapore Airlines.
