Vistara introduces Vistara Corporate Flyer, designed to make flying hassle-free for corporate customers
- Enhanced cabin baggage allowance
- Preferred seating, including exit rows for no fee
- Complementary priority check-in, boarding and baggage-handling*
- Complementary Vistara FlyEarly (for same day earlier flight)*
New Delhi: Vistara, India’s finest airline, today, launched Vistara Corporate Flyer, a programme under which the airline will provide its corporate customers several benefits designed to make business travel hassle-free. The unique programme will be available to all eligible customers travelling on Vistara’s corporate fares, regardless of class of travel.
With Vistara Corporate Flyer, all eligible customers will enjoy complementary Carry On Plus benefits, which provide increased cabin baggage allowance of 12kg for the larger cabin bag that goes in the overhead bin (which equates to 70 percent more allowance than the usual 7 kg limit), in addition to a smaller item such as a laptop bag that can fit under a seat in the cabin. This is by far the most generous free cabin baggage allowance for any airline in India. Corporate customers travelling in economy class will be eligible for free selection of exit-row seats that provide more legroom, ensuring greater comfort on-board. Additionally, Vistara’s Top 100 Corporate Clients travelling in economy class will receive complementary priority check-in, baggage handling and boarding across all destinations on Vistara’s network, and can also choose a complementary option of taking a same-day earlier flight by arriving at the airport 45 minutes prior its departure (subject to availability) under the Vistara Fly Early programme.
All of these benefits come over and above other benefits of being a corporate customer, which include special fares and free changes and cancellation of bookings.
Commenting on the launch of the programme, Sanjiv Kapoor, chief strategy and commercial officer, Vistara, said, “We understand what a more generous cabin baggage allowance and more comfortable and hassle-free experience means for the ‘road warriors’, today’s frequent business travellers who travel often as much as our crew, and are routinely pressed for time on both ends of their journey. We understand their frustration when they have to check-in their bags only for carrying that extra pair of shoes, those extra documents, or a few more work essentials, and then not be able to carry these with them to work on board or not be able to zip through the airport. We recognise their desire to have a little more room to work or rest when travelling in economy class, or to simply take an earlier flight if they are done with their work early. One of our core values is that of being ‘intuitively thoughtful’, and so we want to take care of the little details to ensure that our corporate customers enjoy hassle-free journeys every time they fly with Vistara.”
A code assigned to each corporate client will be printed on e-tickets and boarding passes of corporate travellers, which will enable Vistara staff to identify them in order to offer these benefits at the airport. The Top 100 Corporate Clients will have an additional unique code. Benefits of the Vistara Corporate Flyer programme are available on all Vistara flights for customers booked on corporate fares, and are not available on non-corporate fares or on sale/promo fares.
In a short span of less than three years, Vistara has expanded its network to 21 destinations with over 660 flights a week, operated by a fleet of 16 Airbus A320 aircraft, having flown more than six million happy customers already. The airline continues to grow and gain accolades as it redefines air travel in India.
