Vistara, the Tata-Singapore Airlines joint venture full service carrier, has crossed the milestone of flying the first million passengers today. The airline started its operation on 9 January 2015 and currently flies 311 weekly flights to a network of 12 destinations with a 9 aircraft fleet. It achieved the millionth flier on the 349th day of its operations, at least 2 weeks before it completes the first year. For a relatively new airline its a great achievement to have 1 million passengers flown. This blogger has already predicted it earlier that Vistara going to  cross the million passenger mark by the end of 2015.

Mr. Biplove Choudhary who was flying on the morning Delhi-Mumbai flight UK997, chosen as the lucky millionth flier. He was welcomed by the senior Vistara officials including CEO, Phee Teik Yeoh and CHRO, S Varadarajan at the Indira Gandhi International Airport. And he has been given a free-upgrade to Business-class for his journey today and presented with a Club-Vistara Gold frequent flier membership. Earlier on 2 occasions Vistara had celebrated in the similar fashion when it achieved the first 1 Lakh fliers on 31 March 2015 and 5 Lakh passengers on 20 August 2015.
