Mumbai: The full service carrier Vistara on Monday said it has connected Ranchi with New Delhi with a twice daily direct service to the Jharkhand capital, making the city its fifth destination in eastern India.
The new flight, launched on Sunday, will provide onward connections to other destinations such as Mumbai, Srinagar, Jammu, Kochi and Hyderabad via Delhi, Vistara said in a release on Monday.
"We are delighted to add Ranchi to our network. Vistara's start with double daily direct flights between the capital city and the national capital reflects our strong commitment to the market," Vistara chief strategy and commercial officer Sanjiv Kapoor said.
"We are confident that many business travellers and tourists will be delighted to fly their favourite airline to and from Ranchi," said Kapoor.
The Delhi-headquartered Tata-SIA joint venture airline Vistara has expanded its network to 21 destinations since its launch in January 2015, with over 660 flights a week, operated by a fleet of 16 Airbus A320 aircraft.
