New Delhi: Full-service carrier Vistara is facing a shortage of cabin crew uniforms and some of its cabin crew members will soon be wearing black-coloured uniforms as a temporary solution.
Vistara, a joint venture between the Tata Group and Singapore Airlines, has said it is actively working with suppliers to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
The airline, which is to be merged with Air India, is expanding its fleet as well as staff strength.
Against this backdrop, the carrier on Friday said due to an unforeseen issue with supply of material, it is experiencing limited availability of cabin crew uniforms.

Vistara expects to add a total of 10 planes as well as hire more than 1,000 people in the current financial year.
