Full-service carrier Vistara has announced an initiative under which the airline will provide free sanitary pads to women travellers on domestic flights from International Women’s Day on March 8.
Vistara will be the first Indian airline which has taken such type of “#PadsOnBoard” initiative.
“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 said in a statement recently.
Deepa Chadha, senior vice-president, HR and corporate affairs, Vistara, said: “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 organization that’s providing such an essential amenity to customers — something that will help so many travellers in times of need,” Chadha added.
The airline recently announced the launch of services to Raipur and Dibrugarh, taking its destinations served to 24 with a fleet of 22 Airbus A320 aircraft operating over 800 flights a week.
