Empowering Women on the Go: DIAL Introduces First-of-its-Kind Multi-Product Feminine Hygiene Vending Machines at Delhi Airport
August 07, 2023: Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), a subsidiary of GMR Airport Infrastructure Limited, has partnered with Sirona, India’s leading FEMTECH brand, to launch a groundbreaking initiative aimed at enhancing women’s hygiene accessibility at Delhi Airport. This initiative further solidifies Delhi Airport’s position as a leader in championing women’s health and comfort during travel.
As a part of this first-of-its-kind initiative, 12 multi-product feminine hygiene vending machines have been strategically installed right outside all women’s restrooms at Terminal 2 (T2) of Delhi Airport. These state-of-the-art vending machines offer an array of essential products for women, catering to their diverse hygiene needs. In the future, this initiative will be extended to Terminal 3 and Terminal 1 as well, ensuring that women travellers across the airport have easy access to these essential products.
The newly installed vending machines are revolutionary in their design, offering a wide range of sanitary products, including Menstrual Cups, Tampons, Sanitary Pads, Toilet Seat Covers, Intimate Wipes, and Panty Liners. This comprehensive selection is aimed at providing unparalleled accessibility and convenience to women, eliminating the need for them to search for stores and ensuring their comfort and peace of mind during their journey.
Expressing his enthusiasm about the collaboration, Mr. Videh Kumar Jaipuriar, CEO-DIAL, said, “As an airport operator DIAL is committed to enhancing the overall airport experience for all travellers including women. We are proud to partner with Sirona in this initiative, which will undoubtedly make a significant impact on women travellers’ convenience and well-being. This is a progressive step towards promoting women’s health & hygiene and aligns perfectly with our vision of providing world-class facilities and services at the airport.”
Deep Bajaj, Co-Founder & CEO of Sirona, shared his delight about the partnership, stating, “We are delighted to join hands with DIAL to introduce the first-ever multi-product vending machines for feminine hygiene. This initiative of DIAL perfectly aligns with Sirona’s mission of empowering women and facilitating confident, comfortable lives. Through these innovative vending machines, we are not only providing cutting-edge solutions but also contributing to the cause of making feminine hygiene products accessible and easily available to women wherever they may be. We hope that this initiative sets a precedent for other high-footfall locations to embrace this revolutionary approach and prioritize women’s hygiene.”
Based on Delhi Airport’s passenger profile, women travellers form a significant part of the passenger base at Delhi Airport. Delhi Airport has consistently shown its commitment to the safety, comfort, and convenience of women flyers and offers baby changing rooms and feeding rooms at all the terminals, and a priority buggy service for expecting mothers at Terminal 3.
With this empowering initiative, DIAL paves the way for positive change and enhances the travel experience for women, reaffirming its commitment to women’s health and well-being.
