Vistara operates ‘India’s first flight with fully vaccinated pilots & cabin crew’

New Delhi: Vistara on Wednesday said that it operated "India’s first flight with pilots and cabin crew fully vaccinated against Covid-19." The crew of a Delhi-Mumbai-Mumbai flight (UK-963 and UK 960) have received both jabs of the Covid vaccine. The Tata Group and Singapore Airlines JV full service carrier says it will “operate more such flights in the coming days as their number of fully vaccinated staff increases.”

Vistara chief commercial officer Vinod Kannan 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’.”

Vistara recently said it had got nearly all its eligible employees vaccinated with at least their first doses, including airport and corporate staff, cabin crew and pilots.
