OYO's Support for Vande Bharat Mission

Vande Bharat mission is the massive repatriation operation planned by the Indian government to bring back stranded Indians in different parts of the world in the wake of the coronavirus crisis. Citizens in distress will be brought back on commercial aircraft and naval ships based on lists prepared by the India's embassies. Over ten lakhs Indians are expected to return home, and more than two lakhs are from the UAE alone. India has dispatched four Naval ships as part of the first phase of Vande Bharat mission. Indian Navy’s INS Jalashwa and INS Magar are operating to bring back Indian citizens from Maldives while INS Shardul and INS Airavat set sail to the UAE. The Navy has named its evacuation effort ‘Operation Samudra Setu’. On the premise of the same, OYO Rooms & Hotels has extended their support for the stranded Indian’s coming from abroad by offering the quarantine facility across key location where they are expected to reach in India. We are pleased to share the quote from the OYO regarding the same. In case you are doing a story around the above mentioned topic and you would like to seek OYO’s statement request you to consider the same shared in this mail.

OYO’s Statement:

“We applaud the government's ‘Mission Vande Bharat’ to bring lakhs of stranded Indians back home. We, at OYO as a responsible corporate, stand ready to provide hygienic and safe accommodation facilities so that every Indian who comes back can safely quarantine themselves. These repatriated Indian nationals can opt for our pay-per-use self-quarantine/isolation facilities (as advised by any state/central govt authority)  for the mandatory 14-day quarantine period at a reasonable and affordable price. We have set up a helpline (oyo_care@oyorooms.com) to ensure we are taking requests from people as well as all state, local governments and relevant authorities to determine the best ways to support them. We are also taking several property-level actions to ensure customer and hotel employees’ safety.
