Air India, which the group had taken control of in January after winning the bid to acquire the national carrier for Rs 18,000 crore in October last year, has set up a team.
Domestic air traffic fell 7.6% month-in-month in July 2022 to 97 lakh passengers, aviation regulator DGCA said on Thursday.
Vistara has opened the sale for these additional flights, across all channels including its website, mobile app, OTAs (online travel agencies), and other travel agents.

An engine of a Vistara aircraft on way from Bangkok failed after it landed at Delhi airport, while the cabin crew of an IndiGo's Raipur-Indore flight observed smoke in the plane after it landed.

IATA's Regional Vice President for Asia Pacific Philip Goh said that some sort of discussion must be happening between the Tata Group and Singapore Airlines on the merger of Air India with Vistara.
The pilot, who was the first officer on the flight, landed the aircraft at the Indore airport recently without first getting the requisite training in a simulator, they said.
The airline will also start daily direct service on the Mumbai-Coimbatore route starting May 27 and double the number of daily flights on the Bengaluru-Coimbatore route from June 3.
Jet Airways, which has not flown since April 17, 2019, is currently in the process of re-launching operations under its new promoters Jalan-Kalrock Consortium.
