Indian full service carrier Vistara has announced that it has enhanced wellness experience in addition to Wellness Amenity Kits for passengers travelling in long-haul flights:

Shyft partnership

Vistara has partnered with Shyft, a renowned health and wellness app, to enhance passenger wellness experience onboard. The Delhi-based airline has added over 17 hours of ‘wellness-focused content’ to its in-flight entertainment system across its fleet. It includes tracks for guided meditations, soothing music, sleep-inducing stories, and more to help reduce common in-flight discomforts of its passengers while elevating their overall flying experience.

The exclusive content “has been created and curated by certified professionals to help passengers ‘Feel the Pause’ and fight fatigue, lack of sleep, stiffness of muscles, fear of heights and turbulence, anxiety, etc”.

The ‘wellness-based’ content will be available across Vistara’s In-Flight Entertainment systems including Vistara World.

Pooja Khanna, Founder, Shyft, said:

We’re delighted to partner with Vistara to launch ‘Feel the Pause’ and bring our expertise in health and wellness to add to the wonderful flying experience. Shyft’s videos for stretches, sleep stories, breathwork exercises and meditation will help flyers relax their body and mind, improve sleep and aid work.

  • Luscious Lip Balm – a unique Ayurvedic preparation of kokum butter, organic beeswax and cocoa butter, with extraordinary moisturizing and hydrating properties
  • Facial Tonic Mist – a steam-distilled hydrating facial toner made with pure essential oils
  • Ultra-rich Body Milk – infused with burnt cane sugar, beeswax, cream of milk and apricot oil to seal the moisture in for a supple and plump finish

Samrath Bedi, Executive Director, Forest Essentials, said:

Today’s traveller is looking for carefully curated and thought-out experiences that are distinct, while being efficacious. They are actively embracing purpose and sustainability-driven products, to support environmental causes. With the raised awareness around climate change, there has been a sharp rise in the demand for skincare and especially wellness products. Consumers are more selective and prioritise brands who value transparency and are purpose-led, something that has been inherent in the DNA of Forest Essentials since its inception, almost 20 years ago. Keeping this in mind, we have curated unique wellness offerings for the Vistara traveller, while coming together with another ‘Made in India’ brand, to offer a truly world-class experience.

Deepak Rajawat, Chief Commercial Officer, Vistara, said:

We are excited to bring more elements of delight to our customers, and enhance their journeys. As we continue to find ways to elevate premium travel experiences, we are proud to become the first Indian airline to offer special ‘wellness-focused’ IFE content in partnership with Shyft, and partner with the home-grown luxury brand, Forest Essentials for exclusive amenity kits. We are sure that our customers will appreciate these enhancements, and these will become yet another reason for them to enjoy travelling with India’s finest full-service carrier.

In 2020, Vistara became the first airline to introduce a unique, yoga-inspired in-flight safety video that demonstrates safety instructions through various yoga asanas or postures. Vistara also has wellness lighting solution on all its B787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, called Human Centric Lighting, and mood lighting solution on all other aircraft, that are designed to enhance the relaxing and comfortable experience passengers have onboard.

Meanwhile, Vistara recently announced that it will launch nonstop flights between Mumbai and Delhi in August 2022.
