Vistara continues to take strong steps in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and has successfully vaccinated nearly 100% of its eligible employees. This comprises the airline’s airport staff, cabin crew, pilots and corporate staff who have received at least their first dose ensuring safety and well-being of the employees as well as customers. This is the outcome of airport-led vaccination drives across the country and the Vistara-led drive which has been carried out in Delhi and the one in Mumbai is currently underway.
Recognising the crucial role of vaccination in containing the spread of COVID-19, Vistara has taken a multi-pronged approach to facilitate vaccination for its employees.
The vaccination drive went beyond employees, reaching out to family members of employees, off-roll staff like ground handlers, as well as colleagues from Singapore Airlines and other partner airlines. In addition to vaccines, employee wellbeing has been at the center of the organisations’ focus during these difficult times. Vistara has undertaken various employee-centric initiatives to extend support like creating a special cross-functional taskforce to help employees with all COVID-related medical assistance for themselves and their families.
These initiatives also include paid leaves for recovery from COVID-19 for all affected employees, support with home hospitalization, availability of critical resources like medicines and oxygen support, COVID-19 testing, doctor consultations for timely medical care and if needed, cabs as a makeshift ambulance for employee/their families. Vistara remains fully committed towards the safety and wellness of all its employees.
