British Airways Partners with Vistara

British Airways has announced a new partnership with Indian domestic carrier, Vistara to offer more routes between London and India. As part of the new agreement customers can book seats on Vistara flights to destinations across India from Chennai, Mumbai and Delhi to travel from September 27, 2018.

British Airways operates two direct flights a day from Heathrow to Mumbai, a double daily service to Delhi and a daily flight to Chennai and also flies direct to Hyderabad and Bangalore.

The agreement opens up cities such as Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Goa, Kolkata, Kochi, and Pune which have previously been more difficult to access from the UK.

Passengers travelling on the codeshare flights will be able to check their bags straight through to their final destination and both airlines use the same terminals at Delhi and Mumbai airports, allowing for simple connections to domestic services.

Vistara offers complimentary meals and a choice of three different cabins, including India’s only Premium Economy class. As part of the codeshare agreement, British Airways Executive Club members can also collect Avios and earn tier points when booking on ‘BA’ coded Vistara flights.
