Indian full service carrier and SIA sister airline Vistara has taken delivery of its first Boeing 787-9 aircraft in preparation for international long-haul flights, taking the opportunity to showcase its new Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class cabins.

The delivery marks India’s first Boeing 787-9 variant (Air India operates the 787-8, while to date no Indian carrier has opted for the stretched -10 version). Vistara has six of the aircraft on order in total.

Unlike Singapore Airlines and Scoot, both of whom opted for the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines for their Boeing 787s, Vistara has instead selected the more popular General Electric GEnx-1B powerplants for its Dreamliners. Other operators with these engines, which power two-thirds of Boeing 787s worldwide, include JAL and Qantas.


Business Class

Vistara has chosen the Stelia Symphony product for its Boeing 787 Business Class cabin, with 30 of these seats installed in a 1-2-1 configuration occupying the entire forward cabin section between the first and second set of main passenger doors.
