All the visitors flying by United Airlines to India from US can now easily travel from one city to another via Vistara flights. After a new pact between United Airlines and Tata-Sia joint venture airline, Vistara, US passengers can now travel inter-city seamlessly where United Airlines has no presence.
The codeshare pact allows Vistara to act as a partner carrier and enables United Airlines to book seats for the passengers on Vistara flights. This benefit for passengers will start on February 28, 2020.
According to the company, the United States has been an important source market for foreign travellers in India. With this partnership, customers coming from the United States will benefit, said Vinod Kannan, Chief Commercial Officer at Vistara in a release.
Apart from this, Vistara-operated fights will also bear ‘UA’ designator code in 68 of its aeroplanes. The services will include destinations like Varanasi, Udaipur, Raipur, Ranchi, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Bhubaneswar, Lucknow, Amritsar, Chennai, Hyderabad, Goa, Kolkata, Jodhpur, Srinagar, Pune and Thiruvananthapuram.
This will help customers build a seamless itinerary and they can easily plan their trips beyond Mumbai and New Delhi, said John Gebo senior vice-president (alliances), United Airlines.
