Indian carrier Vistara has taken delivery of its first Airbus A321neo aircraft, registered as VT-TVA. The jet is the airline’s first of six A321neos that were ordered in 2018 and is on lease from Air Lease Corporation (ALC).

Vistara’s brand new A321neo jet features a three-class layout with twelve seats in business class, 24 in premium economy and 152 in economy class. In total, the aircraft has 188 seats. Vistara installs full-flat beds in the narrow-body jet’s business class.

In addition to the new A321neo, Vistara’s current fleet consists of Airbus A320 and Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Furthermore, the airline operates a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner jet, which was delivered earlier this year.

Whereas the 787 is in service on long-haul international flights, the A321neo will be used for short- and medium-haul routes within seven hours of flight time, according to Vistara.
