The airline will operate its Airbus A320neo aircraft on this route as part of the ‘air bubble agreement’ between India and the UAE, complementing its services to/from Dubai.


Vistara, a joint venture of Tata Group and Singapore Airlines, will also become the only airline to offer travellers the choice of premium Economy cabin in addition to business and economy cabins.

We are determined to provide the finest flying experience and enhanced convenience to travellers to and from Sharjah and remain committed to strengthening our global presence.”

Referring to Covid19 travel guidelines, the official said the airline will accept all eligible customers meeting visa/entry requirements in both the countries, as specified by the respective government bodies.
