New Delhi: Leading Indian airline service Vistara joined hands with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and Delhi International Airport (DIAL) to introduce check-in and baggage drop facilities at the New Delhi station of the Delhi Metro Airport Express Line.
According to a press release sent out by the airline, the service is available starting July 11 to offer enhanced convenience and seamless travel experience to Vistara customers.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO, Vistara, said, “At Vistara, our efforts constantly revolve around delighting our customers with a seamless and personalized flying experience not only in the air but also on the ground. Our partnership with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and Delhi International Airport (DIAL) adds to the multiple check-in options we offer to our customers. This will allow our customers to breeze through the check-in process at any of the Airport Express Line metro stations in Delhi with the same efficiency as they experience at the airport.”
Vistara customers can check-in with great ease from two to 12 hours prior to their flight’s schedule departure at the New Delhi station of the Airport Express Line Metro, which is also conveniently connected to the New Delhi Railway Station of the Indian Railways network.
Those already checked-in using the web or Vistara’s mobile app can simply drop their baggage at the counter and head to the airport directly.
Vistara uses secured Baggage Handling System (BHS) to transfer the baggage to the airport terminal efficiently.
The Airport Express Line of the Delhi Metro runs every 10-15 minutes and takes passengers to Terminal 3 of Delhi’s IGI Airport within 18-20 minutes, helping time-constrained passengers beat the traffic on roads.
In two and a half years, Vistara has rapidly grown its fleet and expanded its network across India. The airline now serves 19 destinations with close to 600 weekly flights and 15 aircraft, having flown more than 5 million happy customers already.
