SpiceJet, the country’s favourite airline, has successfully inoculated its entire operating cabin crew with the first dose of the Covid vaccine.
SpiceJet had initiated a vaccination drive for all its employees last month. The company-sponsored program that commenced from Delhi and Gurugram was extended to all domestic operating stations of the airline and was undertaken as per government rules and guidelines. The vaccinated cabin crew does not include those who have recently recovered from Covid and are ineligible for vaccination as per government rules.
Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet, said, “We have achieved an important milestone by successfully inoculating all our operating cabin crew with the first dose of the vaccine. Our vaccination drive will secure the interest and safety of both our passengers and employees who engage directly on a day-to-day basis. A fully vaccinated airline staff will tremendously boost the confidence of flyers and help stimulate travel and tourism and I am happy that SpiceJet is moving in that direction.”
Ever since the lockdown began, SpiceJet and SpiceXpress have played critical roles and worked relentlessly to ensure that the country’s supply chain remained intact. The airline has helped in the transportation of vital goods, medical supplies and fruits and vegetables to all corners of India and the world. SpiceJet has transported around 170,000 lakh tonnes of cargo since March 25, 2020. The airline has also transported a record 88,802 kg of Covid vaccine shipment between January 12 and April 12, 2021.
