The airline will also introduce its flight services to Jammu from New Delhi, besides mounting additional flight to Chandigarh, Srinagar, Bhubaneswar and Kolkata from Delhi, Vistara said in a statement.
While frequencies on Delhi-Chandigarh and Delhi Srinagar routes are being scaled to two flights per day, the Delhi-Bhubaneswar services will be operated three times per day, the airline said, adding that the services on Delhi-Kolkata route will be four times per day.
The bookings for these flights are started.
"Vistara is pleased to announce new destinations, flights, and frequencies in response to high demand from customers and corporates alike, said Sanjiv Kapoor, chief strategy and commercial officer of the airline. "We continue to carefully evaluate new route and destination possibilities, and will be adding more flights as we add aircraft to the fleet over the next fiscal year."
