Commemorating women power, Air India operated around the world with an all women crew to celebrate the International Women’s Day.
In Australia, AI 308 DEL/MEL was led by Captain Laxmi Nagrath. The Dreamliner left Delhi at 1.15pm on 8 March, 2017 and landed in Melbourne just before 7am today, covering around 10,215 kilometres, with 237 passengers and nine infants on board.
All the female passengers were given roses before boarding.
Commanders Captain L Nagrath and Captain ST Nirmal with First Officers Captain P Pushpanjali and Captain Arushi Ahuja led the flight.
Air India is seeking a Guinness World record for its all-female flights around the world. Other airlines have also recently launched similar flights in their quest to join the bandwagon, however Air India claims it is the first one to script history by flying an all–woman crew flight around the world.
