KATHMANDU, March 1 : For the first time the Air India Crew comprised only of Females has successfully made it's way to the Nepal's Capital Kathmandu from Indian National Capital New Delhi.
Siddhartha Roy, country manager of Air India informed that the AI-215 flight, which took off at 2:22pm from Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, landed at Tribhuvan Innternational Airport in Kathmandu at 3:42pm.
“At least 115 passengers were on board the Airbus 321 jet. The entire show — cabin crew, and cockpit crew — was run by women,” Roy said.
Commanded by senior captain Renu and first officer Kala Mehra, the same squad flew the jet back to New Delhi from Kathmandu in the evening. Air India operates two flights daily from New Delhi and four flights a week from Kolkata to Kathmandu.
“It’s really a proud moment to have all women-crew flight to Kathmandu. The response from passengers was fabulous when they came to know about an all-female crew of the flight,” manager Roy said ecstatically.
Air India had set the bar high when it operated the world’s longest continuous flight from New Delhi to San Francisco to mark International Women’s Day in 2016.
