Indian airline Vistara has announced plans to serve Frankfurt with two weekly flights from February 18th, using its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

Vistara confirmed the new route would be operated under the India-Germany air bubble agreement and will operate on Thursday and Saturday. The new route departs Delhi Airport at 03:30am and arrives in Germany at 07:55am. The return flight departs Frankfurt almost five hours later at 12:40pm and arrives back in India at 00:50am the next day. The 787-9 has space for 299 passengers, 30 of which in Business Class, 21 in Premium Economy and the rest are Economy Class seats.

The airline is a codeshare and interline partner of Frankfurt’s home carrier, Lufthansa. Passengers will be able to book connecting flights from Frankfurt to other airports in Germany and the European Union once these operations have received regulatory approval.

Vistara was founded back in 2013 and operated its first flight almost exactly six years ago. Nowadays, Vistara has a fleet of 45 aircraft, including 36 Airbus A320 family aircraft, seven Boeing 737-800 and two Boeing 787-9, four more of which are yet to be delivered. It operates flights as a full-service carrier within the Indian subcontinent, as well as to South East Asia and London Heathrow.
