To celebrate International Women’s Day, Air France is forming the biggest ever all-female crew, with 2 pilots and 22 stewardesses on board flight AF054 to Washington, operated by the Airbus A380.
Air France has celebrated International Women’s Day for several years. For the first time, in 2013, it is celebrating the event on board the world’s biggest superjumbo which can welcome up to 516 passengers.
All-female flight crews often operate at various other times of the year, but the March 8 female crew has become an established tradition at Air France. Whether they are flying to Beijing, Tokyo, Mexico City or today to Washington, these all-female flights are always a popular event for both crew and passengers.
Christine Heitz, Flight Captain on Airbus A380, said:
“Seeing an all-female crew lifts people’s spirits. I am very excited about being on board this flight. It’s an opportunity for us to enjoy this flight with our passengers and strengthen links among colleagues.”
