All About Vistara Web Check-In
Vistara, a joint venture of Tata Sons Limited and Singapore Airlines Limited, started its operations in 2015. A relatively new player in the Indian aviation sector, the airline connects over 24 destinations across the length and breadth of the country. Its prompt service, on-time operations, special assistance and a wide range of check-in options have made it expand its footprint rapidly. Its popular check-in options are mobile check-in and web check-in as these enable passengers to check-in at leisure from anywhere. Vistara web check-in facility helps passengers to avoid the hassle of standing in long queues at the airport and save time. They no longer have to request the staff at the airport check-in counters for preferred seat selection or to speed up the check-in baggage process, as passengers can do these beforehand by availing the web check-in service. The check-in time starts 48 hours prior to the scheduled departure and closes 1 hour before the take-off. After the passengers check-in online by filling requisite details, they receive their e-Boarding Pass via email.
