Air India operated 12 all-women crew flights on its medium and long-haul international routes and over 40 return domestic and short-haul flights all over India to celebrate International Women’s Day on 08th March, this year. On this occasion, the women cockpit and cabin crew of Air India handled wide and narrow body aircrafts in its fleet to all corners of the world including Delhi – Sydney sector and across the nation to salute woman power in sync with our socio-cultural ethos of our country. Seldom has a single airline scheduled so many flights – operated by its women employees – setting a benchmark to reiterate the equal role and opportunity women rightly deserve in any organisation.
Speaking on the occasion, Air India CMD Mr Ashwani Lohani said, “Every individual and the society must respect women. It is a moment of absolute pride and honour for Air Indians that our women employees are leaving their mark in the aviation sector on a global scale. I would like to congratulate our women crew for operating so many flights on various international and domestic routes fuelled by their indomitable nari shakti.”
