Vistara faces shortage of cabin crew uniforms amid supply chain headwinds

Full-service carrier Vistara is facing a shortage of cabin crew uniforms and some of its crew will wear black uniforms as a temporary solution.

Vistara, a joint venture between the Tata Group and Singapore Airlines, said it was actively working with suppliers to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

The airline, which will be merged with Air India, is expanding its fleet as well as the number of employees.

Against this backdrop, the carrier said on Friday that due to an unforeseen material supply issue, it was experiencing limited availability of cabin crew uniforms.

“In the coming days, some of our cabin crew may be shown performing their duties wearing black pants and polo shirts with the Vistara logo instead of the standard nightshade uniform,” she said in a tweet.

Vistara expects to add a total of 10 aircraft in addition to hiring more than 1,000 people in the current fiscal year.
