Vistara, the soon-to-be launched full-service carrier has brought on board the designer duo of Abraham & Thakore for designing uniforms of its pilots, cabin crew and the ground handling staff.

Vistara, which is awaiting flying permit from the DGCA to roll out services in the country, is a 51:49 joint venture between Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines.

"Our brand building partners play an immensely significant role in integrating our core values in their creative approach. We have found the right partners who believe in our brand and its value proposition and will help us to deliver seamless service experience to our customers," Vistara Chief Executive Phee Teik Yeoh said.

The company has taken delivery of two aircraft so far.

With Delhi as its hub, Vistara plans to operate initially to five cities and go up to 11 within a year with 87 weekly flights.

The airline's plans are to link Delhi with Mumbai, Bangalore, Goa, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Jammu, Srinagar, Patna and Chandigarh within the first year of operations.

Initially, the airline is likely to have two flights a day to Mumbai, one of them going onward to Goa. It may also start two flights a day each to Bengaluru, Ahmedabad and Hyderabad.

Under its aggressive expansion plans, Vistara is likely to gradually add destinations like Chennai, Pune, Lucknow, Varanasi, Jaipur, Kolkata, Amritsar, Bagdogra, Indore and Kochi within the first four years of its operations.
