March 8 (TravelAndy): On the occasion of International Women’s Day today, the airline Vistara has launched a service called #VistaraWomanFlyer for women travellers.
As part of the new service, which the airline claims to be the first of its kind in the industry, Vistara will assign preferred seats to women and will also provide baggage and transport assistance on arrival for women travelling alone.
“Our customers can pre-select their preferred seats during booking, after booking through the ‘manage my booking’ feature, as well as during web check-in. Even if the woman traveler has not pre-selected a preferred seat in advance, we will ensure only a window or aisle seat is assigned at check-in. In addition, uniformed Vistara staff will be available at the baggage claim area holding #VistaraWomanFlyer Arrivals Assistance placards, to assist women travellers with their luggage and with the booking of airport-authorised taxis, as well as escort such customers up to the taxi stand upon their request,” the airline said in a statement.
Vistara, a full-service airline, is a joint venture between Tata Sons Ltd. and Singapore Airlines.
