While we all agree that women should be celebrated every day, no matter the time, the age, or the occasion, on International Women's Day, we choose to celebrate the long and rewarding journey that women have undertaken, through history.
It's important that we recognise how far we've come, from fighting for our right to equality in the society and how far we still have to go to completely eradicate gender inequality that exists around us.
Speaking of how far we have to go, Vistara is going the extra mile to celebrate women today, as it has some really exciting news for all the travellers out there.
Vistara, India’s finest full-service carrier, announced a special celebratory sale on flight tickets, for 24 hours only, offering all-inclusive fares starting at just INR 1,099.
Oh, we are definitely not kidding!
Commenting on the occasion, Ms. Deepa Chadha, Senior Vice President - HR & Corporate Affairs, Vistara, said, “We are very excited to celebrate this special day with our women flyers and colleagues. Whatever little we’re doing is just to say a big ‘thank you’ to all of them for inspiring us and the world to be better in every small and big way.
"As a gender-neutral organization, we want to celebrate this occasion with our male flyers as well, and so we’re launching a special sale offering extremely attractive fares that all our customers can avail to plan their holidays in advance.”
