Vistara, India’s finest full-service carrier and a joint venture of Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, appointed The Walshe Group as its representation company in Australia, in September, and the team is now fully operational.

Jacqui Walshe, MD and Chairman of The Walshe Group said, “We are genuinely excited to have this opportunity to represent Vistara in the Australian market.  They have been an airline to watch for some time and we are really looking forward to working with them as they pursue their growth ambitions.  India continues to be a highly significant tourism market for Australia, both inbound and outbound, and we are in no doubt that Vistara will become a successful contributor to the increase in that two-way passenger flow”.

As the highest-rated Indian airline on Skytrax and TripAdvisor and the winner of several ‘Best Airline’ awards, Vistara brings the combined experience of its parents Tata Sons, one of India’s largest and most respected business houses, and Singapore Airlines, one of the world’s most respected airlines, to Indian aviation. The airline now connects 30 destinations and operates nearly 200 flights a day with a fleet of 23 Airbus A320 and nine Boeing 737-800NG aircraft. The airline has flown more than 16 million customers since starting operations in 2015.

Sanjiv Kapoor, Chief Commercial Officer, Vistara, said, “Expanding Vistara’s sales presence in Australia will further facilitate business and leisure travel between India and Australia, a route that continues to record significant demand. As Vistara continues to grow and offer seamless ways to connect India to the world, we are delighted to join hands with The Walshe Group to lead our sales and servicing activities in the Australian market.”

The Walshe Group has been representing airlines for over 40 years and is able to call on the expertise of senior people in providing the strategic insights and intelligence to weather continuing shifts in the industry and grow airline business.
