Passengers have applauded Vistara’s world-class travel experience and safety standards, which helped the airline win the Best Domestic Airline title two years in a row.
Vistara is committed to decreasing its environmental effect, which has resulted in significant investments in innovative engineering systems and a modern fleet that is regarded as one of Asia’s youngest.
Vistara also took many steps to guarantee that its actions against COVID-19 had an impact on a wide range of stakeholders, including workers, customers, and communities.
To maintain the highest safety and hygiene standards across all touchpoints in the customer experience, the airline changed several procedures and implemented different technological interventions in accordance with regulatory criteria. Vistara has launched two award-winning initiatives, #FlyingFeelsSafeAgain and #FlyerCODE, aimed at raising awareness and inducing good behavioural changes in passengers for a more comfortable and secure air travel experience.
During the devastating second wave of the pandemic, Vistara activated its ‘National Relief Program’ and offered complimentary air logistics for transportation of medical equipment across the network.
It also welcomed health workers from government organisations to travel free of cost on its domestic network, when travelling on Covid19 duty. Vistara extended all-around support to its employees to ensure their well-being throughout the pandemic.
Besides offering medical support, the airline took systematic steps and managed to get almost all its employees fully vaccinated against the virus. It is also the first Indian airline to have operated flights with fully vaccinated cabin crew and pilots.
Under its signature CSR project ‘Vistara Wellness Initiative’, the airline donated over 200,000 wellness essentials (nutritious food and hygiene items) to communities impacting the lives of nearly 34,000 individuals across the country.
Vistara is India’s highest-rated airline on Skytrax and Tripadvisor and has won multiple ‘Best Airline’ accolades in addition to being praised for cabin cleanliness and safety.
