Singapore Airlines' new India venture with Tata gets a name

SINGAPORE -- Watch out, budget airlines, the big boys have some plans of their own. And at least one of those plans includes a new full-service airline crisscrossing the sky above India.

     The airline will be named Vistara, a play on the Sanskrit word vistaar, meaning "limitless expanse." It is owned by Tata SIA Airlines, a joint venture between Singapore Airlines and India's Tata Group.
