Vistara Goes Retro to Celebrate 150 Years of Tata Group

Vistara unveiled its 22nd aircraft, an Airbus A320neo with an extraordinary retro-livery (paint scheme) that is the first-of-its-kind in India, along with a historic aircraft registration number and a retro-uniform that complements the livery.
The livery recreates the one used in the 1940s by Tata Airlines, India’s very first airline that was founded by JRD Tata, and the aircraft also bears the registration VT-ATV, that was originally used by a Tata Airlines DC-3 aircraft. This striking retro-livery is also a celebration of 150 years of the Tata Group, and it reclaims for Vistara the space once held by the pioneers of aviation in India, Tata Sons, and the father of Indian Aviation, JRD Tata.
     Vistara also unveiled a special retro-uniform for select cabin crew, inspired by the “Golden Days of Aviation,” of the 1950s and ‘60s, to be worn on special occasions, starting with the aircraft’s inaugural flight on September 5, 2018, from Delhi to Mumbai. The inaugural flight will also feature a menu with JRD Tata’s favourite dishes, as remembered by senior chefs at Taj Hotels.
