Everyone has different ways to celebrate the International Women’s Day and same goes with the British Airways. They, in fact, took a daring as well as out of the box plan in airlines history in hand and executed it successfully by flying the UK’s biggest ever all-female flight on 6th of March, 2018. With 208 passengers onboard, the journey created a airlines history while inspiring millions of female minds.
The Legacy airlines British Airways comprised 61 crew – from baggage handlers to pilots – all female, while they left London Heathrow targeting Glasgow.
The crew members, be it a cabin crew, security team or flight managers, check-in and airport teams loaders or push back teams, each of them feels the power and expressed their gratitude for getting enable to be a part of such a mission.
This flight also works as an awareness-raising program. Lots of people wrongly cherish the typical thought that working in the aviation industry is only men’s duty. So, the crew involved in this flight wishes to show that female society has bunches of other fields they can be passionate about and dream to serve. We are happy to add that 8 March is also the day when the first female pilot received her license.
As another step towards building conscious, the behind-the-scenes of the fight was filmed and it would be made available for travelers willing to use British Airways. It going to be very amusing to see those women in action. To make the next generation inspired, 2 young air cadets are also involved in work experience, while 7 other (16-18 years) teenagers are given the chance of watching the inner operation of the flight.
