IndiGo Cares: IndiGo sets up central and regional task forceIndia’s leading carrier IndiGo has announced a host of initiatives to support its employees and their families in these trying times. In order to support its employees, the airline has set up a central task force as well as regional task forces. These centres will monitor and review response strategies and create programs to support its people.

The company has tied up with Columbia Asia Hospital in Gurgaon where a 13-bedded Covid Care Centre is being set-up to help those Covid-19 positive employees who may need access to an oxygen bed with related medical facilities. This is available for use both by IndiGo employees and their immediate family members.

IndiGo has already commenced vaccination drives across 40 stations in its network and IndiGo Support Centre at Gurgaon. There are drives planned for some additional stations later this month, depending on vaccine supplies.

The airline launched a Plasma Donor Bank initiative last week, with assistance from employees who have recovered from Covid in the past three months. Approximately 110 employees came forward to volunteer for donating plasma, the company said.
IndiGo has come up with The Wellness Corner mobile application and 24×7 helpline for doctor consultation, in partnership with Truworth Health Technologies. The helpline is a dedicated, round the clock, support helpline to assist IndiGo employees and their immediate family members with Covid-19 and other basic medical queries.

To support its employees and their family members, IndiGo has partnered with hotels, which will serve as a safe and hygienic place for any of their employees who are Covid+ with mild symptoms or are asymptomatic or are staying away from their hometown and want to safely distance from their housemates/family members.

Raj Raghavan, Senior VP & Head of Human Resources, IndiGo said, “ Our people are at the heart of all that we do. The safety and well-being of our people and their families is not only paramount, but it is a sense of duty for all of us at IndiGo to be there for them- physically, financially, and emotionally. Needless to say, our people have stood with us like a rock, and that’s what inspires us to do more. We do hope that all these measures help them and their families in these challenging times. It is really a moment to express our gratitude to all our people who have demonstrated exemplary resilience, grit and empathy in this current scenario.”
