Kannan said the airline will continue to expand and expects to have a total of 70 planes by mid-2024.

'The percentage of capacity deployed internationally has increased. We have 25-30 per cent deployed internationally... That is quite positive and a game changer for us,' he had said.

Additionally, Vistara announced that it will resume Mumbai-Colombo operations, with daily flights beginning on March 1, 2023, following a nearly three-year gap.
