Jut a few days before Women’s Day, Air India made history by sending an all women crew around the world. The team completed an around-the-world trip after they touched back down in New Delhi on Friday.
The Boeing 777 flew from New Delhi to San Francisco last Monday, traveling over the Pacific Ocean.
The elated crew of Air India posed for selfies in San Francisco International Airport last Monday before setting off on the final leg of the trip.
The crew completed a mandatory rest period before flying over the Atlantic back to New Delhi, completing the round-the-world trip.
The airline has submitted an entry to the Guinness Book of World Records.
It’s a significant achievement as not only were the pilots and flight attendants all women, but the air traffic controllers in charge of the flight departure and arrival were female, including the engineers who certified the airplanes.
To help celebrate International Women’s Day, on March 8, Air India will be sending additional female crews to places all around the world.
