Full service carrier Vistara has entered into a partnership with WorldTicket that will enable providing connections to customers on Germany’s Deutsche Bahn train network.

The interline partnership with WorldTicket (W2), part of the 777 Travel Tech group, and the only authorised distributor for Europe’s largest railway operator, Deutsche Bahn, will enable the carrier to offer multimodal itineraries to its customers.

According to a release, customers will be able to seamlessly book air and rail travel throughout Germany and other European cities on a single itinerary.

“Vistara customers can now easily connect from any one of 16,000 train stations in Germany to Frankfurt Airport and fly Vistarato Delhi, and vice versa. In addition to train stations across Germany, Vistara customers can also travel to and from Amsterdam (the Netherlands), Brussels (Belgium), and Zurich or Basel (Switzerland) on Deutsche Bahn’s extensive network,” it said.

The flight segment of the customer’s journey is being operated and marketed under Vistara’s ‘UK’ while the train segment is operated by Deutsche Bahn and marketed by ‘W2’.

“From the customer’s perspective, they will book a single itinerary that includes both flight and rail reservations and only need to check in separately for each segment. Once passengers arrive at Frankfurt (FRA), they can clear immigration, collect their bags and proceed to the railway station at Frankfurt Airport to board their train,” the release said.

Vistara — a joint venture between Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines — has a fleet of 52 aircraft.
