Vistara plans to resume services from May 4, 2020.

The official statement read, “While the situation remains fluid, we plan to resume services in a phased manner starting May 4, 2020.”

The airline spokesperson said, “We will make every effort to protect the health and safety of our customers and staff, following all regulatory guidelines as well as by adopting certain important, stringent preventive measures proactively.”

Moreover, they will also ensure social distancing across all touchpoints and continue with the stepped-up cleaning measures.

All Vistara aircraft will be cleaned at the turnaround of every single flight and undergo deep cleaning with higher concentration of approved disinfectant cleaners every 24 hours.

The airline staff on-ground and onboard will wear face masks and hand gloves at all times and all aircraft will be equipped with such PPEs, including sanitizer wipes and contactless thermometers.

In terms of other temporary adjustments, the airline spokesperson said, “Any passenger showing symptoms of fever and/or respiratory illness will undergo a precautionary check-up with the Airport Medical Support Team. We will also make temporary adjustments in some of the aspects of our onboard service purely to minimise interaction between cabin crew and customers.”
