To celebrate International Women’s Day this year, Air India Group assigned over 90 flights to be operated by an all-female crew.
These flights operated from the start of March in the run-up to Women’s Day on March 8th. The number of flights also signifies the 90th anniversary of JRD Tata’s first commercial flight. In addition to the cockpit and cabin crews, the flights were served by women dispatchers, safety and quality auditors, loaders, engineers, and security. “India has the largest number of commercial women pilots in the world and with more Indian women pursuing careers in aviation, we are achieving gender equality in the workforce. We are proud of the women workforce with us at Air India today, and we thank each of them for sending out a powerful message that women can excel in any field,” said Campbell Wilson, CEO and Managing Director of Air India.
