Vistara has added another thoughtful initiative in its service – supply of free sanitary pads on board. The practice that started on 8 March 2019, the Women’s Day, intends to provide women travellers with a comfortable flying experience every time they fly Vistara. “The initiative to provide sanitary pads to our customers is a meaningful one that reflects our core philosophy that ‘small things make a big difference’. As a woman, I feel a greater sense of pride for being part of an organisation that’s providing such an essential amenity to customers – something that will help so many travellers in times of need.,” Ms. Deepa Chadha, Senior Vice President – HR & Corporate Affairs, Vistara said.
Vistara is the first Indian airline to offer sanitary pads on flights within India. The airline will provide ISO 9001:2015 certified, bio-degradable and organic sanitary napkins made from plant-based fibres that are free of plastic, toxins and perfume. Vistara’s cabin crew will make in-flight announcements on all flights to create awareness among travellers about the availability of sanitary pads onboard for customers to freely ask for it if they need it.
“At Vistara, everything we do stems from the concept of ‘intuitive thoughtfulness’. It is this pure, humane perspective that makes us different from any other airline, and the reason that Vistara is the first choice for air travellers in India today,” Ms. Chadha added/\.
In 2017, Vistaara launched #VistaraWomanFlyer service to provide certain benefits and peace of mind to solo women travellers.
Additionally, to celebrate International Women’s Day, all-women crew and pilots operated retro-themed flights on the #VistaraRetroJet between Delhi and Goa on March 8. The cabin crew on these flights dressed in limited-edition retro-style uniforms and customers were invited to dress retro as well, and had welcomed with memorabilia and served unique dishes.
