DOHA: Qatar Airways has today entered into a new interline partnership with full-service Indian airline Vistara, as the Qatari national carrier marks more than 20 successful years of flights to India.

The new interline agreement taking effect from August 22, 2017 will allow Qatar Airways’ passengers to travel seamlessly to and from a wide range of cities within India across Vistara’s network, via Qatar Airways’ existing 13 Indian gateways and under a single ticket with QR’s generous baggage allowance throughout the journey.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “This exciting new partnership with Vistara will bring enhanced connectivity and increased convenience to our passengers travelling within India on an expanding full-service premium carrier.

 

 

“The Indian market is very important to us, and we operate more than one hundred flights a week between Doha and 13 Indian cities. This new partnership expands Qatar Airways’ presence in India and reinforces our commitment to this market.”

Vistara’s Chief Executive Officer, Phee Teik Yeoh, said: “We are delighted to launch our interline partnership with Qatar Airways, through which we will offer a seamless flying experience and international luggage allowance to our joint customers from various cities in India to and from over 150 destinations across the world on a single ticket. Qatar Airways' customers will also now be able to experience 'the new feeling’ with Vistara and enjoy the finest hospitality in Indian skies on their domestic connecting flights.”

In a short span of less than three years, Vistara has expanded its network to 19 destinations with more than 625 weekly flights operated by a fleet of 15 Airbus A320 aircraft, having flown more than five million passengers. Vistara is the first and only airline in India to introduce Premium Economy class on domestic routes.

Qatar Airways operates services from Doha to the Indian cities of New Delhi, Kochi, Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Khozikode, Kolkata, Goa, Hyderabad, Chennai, Nagpur and Thiruvananthapuram.
