Experts say right mix of narrow and wide body will change cost economics for airline.
In a major expansion bid, Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines’ joint venture, Vistara, has placed an order for 50 Airbus A320neos and A321neos, and six Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. This is the first major order by the airline since starting operations in 2015. While the airline has signed an agreement with French manufacturer Airbus for 13 A320neos, it will lease 37 aircraft. Additionally, the airline has kept the option to order four more Dreamliners from Boeing open.
