Vistara’s Grand Celebration happens at Kolkata Airport
Kolkata. Vistara, India’s fastest growing full service carrier, on October 28 achieved another milestone of flying 3 million happy customers in less than two years of operations.
Inheriting the lineage of two globally iconic brands – Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, Vistara has been applauded by flyers for its customer-centric approach and for bringing joy back to flying.
Vistara surprised its 3 millionth customer, Mr Abhinav Adhikari at Kolkata’s Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport received a pleasant surprise when a grand welcome accompanied by a live acoustic music performance greeted him when he checked in at the airport. Vistara gifted Mr Abhinav Adhikari a courtesy upgrade to Vistara’s Business Class cabin on his flight to Delhi. The special boarding pass was presented by Mr Sanjiv Kapoor, Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer, Vistara.
Mr Abhinav Adhikari had not felt more special at an airport earlier, as he exclaimed, “It is the most wonderful surprise I’ve ever got before taking a flight! Really, it made me feel like a celebrity, and I am extremely touched with such a warm welcome. I was a fan of Vistara until today, but for this amazing surprise, I am now a proud loyalist!”
Expressing delight on the milestone achievement, Mr. Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO, Vistara, said, “There’s nothing more satisfying for us than to see our customers reacting positively to our product and service. 3 million is not just any number to us. It is a significant milestone in our journey to become a world-renowned airline of choice esteemed for its exceptional customer service. This milestone celebration could not have been more timely, taking place just before Diwali. Our fast growing fan base is a strong endorsement of our brand and a fruition of our relentless commitment to transforming the flying experience in India, forever. This milestone achievement only strengthens our resolve further to delight our customers at every encounter, on every journey. As we eagerly look forward to welcoming our 5 millionth customer on board, soon, I would like to invite all travelers in India to join our customers to “Fly the new feeling”.
