#WomensDaySpecial: Air Vistara to offer sanitary pads on-board

Air Vistara is set to become the first airline in the country to provide sanitary pads to its female passengers. This is part of a special initiative which will be started from March 8


These sanitary pads will be provided to the women on request. It aims to help ease any problems a woman might face if they do not have a sanitary pad with them. Women who face awkward situations need not worry about these problems any longer.

The ‘PadsOnBoard’ initiative will offer bio-degradable sanitary pads to women travellers on all its domestic flights from March 8, the International Women’s Day.

The sanitary pads are organically made and are free of plastic and toxins.

Commenting on the initiative, Deepa Chadha, Senior Vice President, HR and Corporate Affairs, 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 organisation that’s providing such an essential amenity to customers, something that will help so many travellers in times of need.”

The PadsOnBoard initiative is part of Vistara’s focus on services and amenities for women travellers launched in 2017 to provide certain benefits and peace of mind to solo women travellers.
