Pune: Vistara Airlines has become the first airline in India to provide sanitary pads on board for its women passengers. The initativewill be implemented from this International Women’s Day.

The airline will provide ISO 9001:2015 certified, bio-degradable and organic sanitary napkins made from plant-based fibre that are free of plastic, toxins and perfume. The airline is operating three direct flights between Pune and Delhi.

Recognising the need for this essential amenity, the airline introduced this service to assure women travellers 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 travellers that sanitary pads are now available onboard.

Deepa Chadha, Senior Vice President – HR & Corporate Affairs, said, “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 travellers 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 providing such an essential amenity to customers – something that will help so many travellers.”
