Vistara has offered to fly doctors and nurses representing the government organisations, free of cost. The airlines said that due to the limited availability of seats, it will accommodate the medical professionals on a first-come-first-serve basis.
In a letter to Usha Padhee, joint secretary in 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.
“We are also happy to fly doctors and nurses representing government organisations, free of cost, across our domestic network, and also fly them back on the conclusion of their service. The personnel who avail this service will have to mandatorily follow all the travel related SOPs and present relevant identification and documentation,” it added.
