Vistara, the joint venture carrier between Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, Thursday said it has become a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), a global body of 280 airlines.
“In September 2017, Vistara successfully completed the IATA Operational Safety Audit or IOSA, cementing its commitment to safety. The audit, a pre-requisite for an IATA membership, confirms Vistara’s compliance with internationally approved aviation safety standards across multitudinous parameters in operational management and control systems. The membership will further enable Vistara to collaborate with other international member airlines for codeshare and interline agreements, and provide a seamless travel experience through an extended global network to travellers to and from India,” the airline said in a statement.
National carrier Air India and Jet Airways are the only two other Indian airline members of IATA.
