“We are pleased to strengthen our presence in the Middle East by adding another global city to our steadily growing network, albeit for special flights under the ‘transport bubble’, As an economic hub of the region, Doha continues to draw business travelers and is home to a large number of Indian expatriates,” the CEO of Vistara said.
