New Delhi : India’s finest full-service carrier, Vistara, announced another thoughtful initiative #Pads On Board, whereby it will provide sanitary pads on board its flights to women travelers on request, starting this International Women’s Day on 8 March 2019. This initiative makes Vistara 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. 

Recognizing the need for this essential amenity, the airline introduced this service to assure women travelers of a comfortable flying experience every time they fly Vistara. Vistara’s cabin crew will make in-flight announcements on all flights to create awareness among travelers that sanitary pads are now available on board for customers to freely ask for it if they need it.

Commenting on the initiative, Senior Vice President of HR & Corporate Affairs Department, Ms. Deepa Chadha said, ‘At Vistara, everything we do stems from the concept of ‘intuitive thoughtfulness’. It is this simple, humane perspective that makes us different from any other airline, and the reason that Vistara is the first choice for air travelers in India today. 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 travelers in times of need.”


The introduction of #Pads On Board is part of Vistara’s focus on services and amenities for women travelers, adding to #Vistara Woman Flyer service that was launched in 2017 to provide certain benefits and peace of mind to solo women travelers. Together, these products and services will come under the ‘Vistara for Women’service umbrella, as Vistara continues to lead the way on this front in India.

Additionally, to celebrate International Women’s Day, all-women crew and pilots operated retro-themed flights on the #Vistara Retro Jet between Delhi and Goa. The cabin crew on these flights dressed in limited-edition retro-style uniforms, and customers are invited to dress retro as well, and welcomed with memorabilia and served special dishes.
