IndiGo is set to become the first domestic airline with an all inoculated operational staff. Accordingly, the airline in anticipation of rising travel demand on the back of accelerated vaccination programme has initiated the internal inoculation drive.
Besides, the company wants to restore confidence in not just the travelling public but also in operational crew members, front office and ground handling staff. Recently, the Centre allowed for a liberalised vaccination phase under which private entities can procure vaccines at market regulated prices.
Presently, the airline has around 23,000 employees, including employees belonging to its subsidiary Agile, all of whom, it plans to inoculate. Furthermore, the company is also providing time off to crew members upon vaccination as per guidelines. “We are also sponsoring vaccination for our employees and facilitating it for their families.”
