Vistara announces fleet-wide availability of its Vistara World inflight entertainment system
New Delhi: Vistara, India’s finest full-service carrier, today announced the availability of Vistara World, its state-of-the-art complimentary wireless inflight entertainment system, across its entire network and fleet of 22 aircraft that operate over 120 flights a day.
The simple and intuitive user interface of Vistara World that is accessed on customers’ own smart devices or laptops lets them choose from a content-rich multimedia library of over 70 hours of top-notch Bollywood and Hollywood content of various genres. Refreshed every month, it features movies of various categories such as drama, romance, comedy, thriller, action, adventure and kids, as well as popular Indian and Western TV programmes and a great selection of music including Indian, pop, jazz, blues, rock, electronica and English retro.
In addition, Vistara World offers a live ‘moving map’ display that allows one to track their aircraft as it flies, as well as engaging reading material including Vistara’s inflight magazine.
Sanjiv Kapoor, chief strategy and commercial officer, Vistara, elaborated, “We are delighted to roll out our Vistara World wireless streaming inflight entertainment system across our entire network and all flights, to further enhance the high levels of customer experience that Vistara is famous for. This is a significant addition to our product portfolio and fulfils a much sought-after request from our customers.”
He added, “As is the case with everything we do at Vistara, it is the details that matter the most. Not only are we providing a state-of-the-art wireless entertainment system, we are also investing in high-quality, blockbuster Indian and Western content with a variety of popular and curated choices to delight our customers – there is something for everyone. This product introduction is just the latest in a series of launches and innovations, including the recently introduced Vistara Freedom Fares and the Vistara Retrojet that have made Vistara the trendsetter in Indian aviation.”
The entertainment content is streamed wireless directly to customers’ handheld smart devices or laptop computers. The complete range of content is best accessed on the Vistara World app available free for download on Google Play Store (for Android devices) or Apple App Store (for iOS devices), and Vistara highly recommends that customers download these apps prior to their flights. However, digitally unrestricted content on Vistara World can also be accessed without the app on customers’ smart devices.
As the highest-rated Indian airline on Skytrax and TripAdvisor, and winner of several best-in-industry awards, Vistara has consistently raised the bar for operations and service standards in the Indian aviation market in a short span of less than four years. The airline today serves 22 destinations with over 800 flights a week and a fleet of 22 aircraft. Recently, Vistara announced its fleet expansion plan through a combination of purchased and leased aircraft totalling 50 from the Airbus A320neo family (including the A321neo) as well as six Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
