Crew now have options ranging from early morning or late evening flights, frequent layovers, time off from work, preferred overnight stops and specific flights etc., allowing them more flexibility in their schedules. 
Since implementation, the system has proven to be very effective with the majority of crew rosters being positively affected according to their indicated preferences.
Commenting on the development, Captain Hamish Maxwell, Senior Vice President – Flight Operations, Vistara said:“As a relatively young airline born in the digital age, Vistara is rapidly adopting new technologies and automating processes across all our functions to extract more efficiencies and enhance employee experience.

It is with great pleasure that we are now able to offer this option to our crew to make an impact. on their menus, and thus on their lifestyles.”
Vinod Bhatt, Chief Information Officer, Vistara, said:“Digital solutions for crew roster, taking care of crew lifestyle preferences, are a great example of how modern digital technologies can dramatically improve employee productivity and experience.”
