Vistara today operated India’s first flight with pilots and cabin crew fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The special flight departed Delhi for Mumbai operated by crew that have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Vistara plans to operate more such flights in the coming days as their number of fully vaccinated staff increases.
Vinod Kannan, Chief Commercial Officer, Vistara, said, “Vaccination is the best known defence against the pandemic that is helping the world get back to normalcy, subsequently aiding the recovery of the aviation industry. We have been consistently getting our staff vaccinated in our endeavour to ensure safety for them, their families and our customers whom they serve. This special flight operated by our fully vaccinated cabin crew and pilots is a sign of our continued commitment towards making ‘flying feel safe again’.”
The airline recently announced that it had got nearly 100% of its eligible employees vaccinated with at least their first doses.
