Goa is the most-loved tourist destination of India. The beach destination is not only flocked by desi visitors, but international travellers love to spend months in Goa. The coastal state witnesses a vast number of foreign tourists, including those from Russia and Britain during the winter months. However, this year due to the global pandemic, tourism has taken a backseat. Although travelling right now is a slippery slope, Goa saw a surge in domestic travellers in the last month. In an attempt to accommodate more travellers, Vistara will now be operating more flights to Goa from Delhi & Mumbai.
