VISTARA, India’s finest full service carrier, introduced its first male cabin crew, a mix of experienced and new crew, on March 29, 2018. The crew took to the skies following the completion of a rigorous three-month safety and service training program to the exacting standards of Tata and Singapore Airlines.
Vistara also unveiled an elegant uniform for its male cabin crew, which is a fine blend of style, comfort, and functionality, designed by celebrated designer label Lecoanet Hemant.
Sanjiv Kapoor, chief strategy & commercial officer, Vistara, said, “As we expand and prepare for international operations, we are delighted to introduce our first male cabin crew on select flights starting today. We are an equal opportunity employer, and it has always been our intent to have male cabin crew once we reached a certain scale of operations where we could efficiently roster and deploy mixed crew. Like our female cabin crew, our male cabin crew will deliver Vistara’s brand promise of providing seamless excellence to our customers through a unique, thoughtful, and personalized experience that reflects the exacting standards of Tata and Singapore Airlines.”
Vistara’s elegant male crew uniform is based on its brand colours. It includes a light lavender coloured shirt, along with midnight blue tailored-fit trousers and a classic, sleeveless Mandarin-collar jacket. Adding a dash of colour to the elegant attire is a pale gold pocket square. The uniform has been designed to visually and functionally complement Vistara’s unique, eye-catching, and practical female cabin crew uniform.
The second and third set of male crew are currently in training, and will soon be joining the first set in the air.
