Kiran Mahtani, a Mumbai-based travel agent said many of his clients are anxiously waiting to try out the airline.
"We have gotten enquires from our regular travelers, but right now [Vistara] are only flying twice a day and they need a bit more flexibility," he told CNBC. When the frequency of flight increases and more routes open, Mahtani expects the airline will garner a lot of interest among travelers.
Sky's the limit
The airline's potential is boundless given the possible synergies between Singapore Airlines and Tata, said Dubey, calling their partnership the "marriage of the decade" in India's corporate sector.
"Tata is one of India's oldest, largest and respected conglomerate with operations in hotels, transportation, automobiles, aviation catering, telecom, retail, IT and general aviation," said Dubey. "All these are key back-end requirements of an airline. There's potential for huge synergies here."
However, it won't all be blue skies.
India's aviation sector, whilst promising due to the country's bourgeoning middle class and low air travel penetration rates, presents a tougher operating environment than most other markets.
Facing intense price competition and exorbitant operating costs owing to high airport and fuel taxes, carriers have been locked in a battle for survival.
"It's an exciting venture [but comes] at a time when Indian aviation is going through a rough period," said Dubey, noting that Vistara will not be immune to challenges facing other players in the sector.
