Singapore Airlines and Tata Sons announced the creation of a new airline, Vistara.  The move follows last September’s agreement to launch the new carrier based in India.

Vistara is expected to take delivery of its first plane, an Airbus A320-200, in September, and plans to begin operations in October.  The carrier, headquartered in Delhi, hopes to increase its fleet to 20 aircraft by the end of its fifth year of operation.

The name of the new airline comes from the Sanskrit word “Vistaar”, meaning “limitless expanse”.

In addition to the name, the carrier’s crew and staff uniforms were also revealed on Monday.

Tata Sons is based in Mumbai, and is the parent company of Tata Group, a multinational conglomerate with footholds in several business sectors.
