Vistara Removes Starbucks Coffee from Inflight Service

Vistara announced on Thursday that it would be removing Starbucks coffee from its inflight service. This comes as part of several changes announced by the airline to reduce human contact on board during the post-lockdown period.
Vistara, the Tata-SIA airline, will be making several changes to the service it provides on domestic and international flights once operations resume. The new operating procedures aim to reduce human contact on board by up to 80% and include plans to limit the amount of time that the cabin crew spends interacting with passengers.

On domestic flights, this means that there will be a reduction in meal choices and withdrawal of certain services in both the premium economy and economy cabins. This includes onboard sales, welcome drink, hot meals, Starbucks coffee, and Turkish towels. Water and other cold beverages will still be made available to all passengers, but water-pouring will be replaced with the distribution of 200 ml sealed water bottles on all flights.
Vistara also announced that it would be removing its inflight magazine and all other reading materials to further reduce the risk of spreading the virus by touch. Services on international flights will also be reviewed.
