Vistara offers to fly govt doctors & nurses for free on its domestic network

Vistara Airlines has offered free air travel to the doctors and nurses who are representing the government organisations across the domestic network,  amid a spike in Covid-19 cases.

In a letter to Usha Padhee, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Civil Aviation, Vistara said “…we want to help government organisations/hospitals in immediate need of air logistics. We welcome requests from accredited organisations representing the Government of India and state governments/union territories. We will evaluate these to extend as much support as possible, based on the availability of cargo space,” Vistara said.

The airlines will accommodate the medical professionals on a first-come-first-serve basis.
