Vistara-Air India merger likely by year-end

The merger between Vistara and Air India appears to be progressing steadily, with Vinod Kannan, CEO of Vistara, outlining the expected timeline for completion by the end of 2024. Back office employee transfers are anticipated to be completed by the end of June or early July, with operational aspects such as crew and aircraft movements contingent upon regulatory approvals and oversight.

Singapore Airlines' investment in Air India, alongside the merger, signals a significant development in the aviation sector. Post-consolidation, Singapore Airlines will hold a 25.1% shareholding in the enlarged Air India Group. This move aligns with the broader consolidation strategy within the industry, as seen with the inclusion of Air India, Air India Express, AirAsia India, and Vistara under the umbrella of the enlarged Air India Group.

Air India's ongoing transformation plan, named 'Vihaan.AI,' underscores the airline's commitment to enhancing various aspects of its operations over a five-year period. This plan aims to revamp the customer proposition, improve on-time performance, achieve sustained growth, profitability, and ultimately, regain market leadership. Such initiatives are crucial for the long-term sustainability and competitiveness of Air India within the dynamic aviation landscape.
