Vistara Bids Adieu to the Boeing 737

July 27, 2023

INDIA, 27 JUL | Indian carrier, Vistara says goodbye to their fleet of Boeing 737-800 aircraft today, with the very last airframe performing its final service yesterday night. The airline has been slowly phasing out their 737 jets since 2020 due to the introduction of newer, efficient A320 family aircraft.

In its history, the award-winning airline has had 9 of the type in its fleet- of which, 2 have been transferred for operations with its partner, Air India Express, so far. Yesterday, the final Boeing 737, VT-TGE, performed its final service from Cochin to Delhi, arriving at 11.15pm on 26 July- marking the end of the 737's history with Vistara.

VT-TVE was the first Boeing 737 leased to Vistara, following the collapse of Jet Airways, and is now the last to leave the fleet just years later. Services UK885, UK896, UK895 and UK886 will be operated by A320s from today onwards, replacing the outgoing 737.
