Full-service carrier Vistara will cancel 54 international flights in the coming month. The airline will cancel flights on routes connecting Delhi with Bangkok and Singapore.
Vistara has to take this decision amid weak demand due to the coronavirus outbreak.
In a statement on Wednesday, Vistara said it’s made temporary adjustments to selected services to/ from Bangkok and Singapore for March.
“20 flights between Delhi and Bangkok, 26 flights between Mumbai and Singapore and eight flights between Delhi and Singapore are going to be cancelled in March 2020,” it said.
“Vistara will continue to monitor the situation and progressively evaluate the requirement for any more adjustments to its schedule to fulfill changing demand patterns.”
With reference to the cancelled flights, customers can choose a full refund or alternative travel dates free of cost.

A joint venture between Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, Vistara operates more than 200 flights daily.
