Another airline shuts its doors

Indian airline Vistara is to be shut down.

The giant Tata Group acquired the Air India and Air India Express brands 12 months ago and has now shut down AirAsia India and Vistara.

CEO Campbell Wilson said the decision was made to continue only with the two Air India brands, as they have the strongest brand recognition globally.

Vistara, a full-service carrier, will be be integrated into Air India, while low-cost-carrier AirAsia India will become part of Air India Express.

The moves should be completed over the next few months, Wilson told local media.

The integration of Vistara is still subject to approval from Competition Commission of India.

Vistara commenced operations on January 9, 2015 with its inaugural flight between Delhi and Mumbai and was one of India's leading domestic carriers.

The airline served 34 destinations with a fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft that will be merged into the Air India fleet.
