Tata-SIA joint venture airline Vistara today said it will launch a daily flight on the Delhi- Pune route from next month, which will take the new carrier's total destinations to eight.

From April 9, Vistara will operate a daily air service on the Delhi-Pune-Delhi route, for which the bookings have commenced from today, the airline said in a release.

With the latest addition of Pune in the route network, customers can now book Vistara flights from Delhi to seven destinations -- Pune, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Goa, Hyderabad and Guhawati and Bagdogra, it said.

The airline will deploy a 148-seater A320 aircraft, with 16 business, 36 premium economy and 96 economy class seats, to service the new route.

"Pune has some of the well-developed conglomerates present and is one of the major modern cities in India. For Vistara, these places showcase immense potential as their robust infrastructure and good quality of life ultimately attracts more travel," Vistara Chief Executive Phee Teik Yeoh said.

The city-headquartered carrier at present has five aircraft in its fleet, which it plans to take to nine by the end of the year.

With the addition one more airport in its network, Vistara would offer a total of 197 flights per week, the release said.
