Emirates Airlines released a video showcasing an Airbus A380 flight heading from Dubai to San Francisco fully operated by an all-women crew as a nod to International Women’s Day.
The flight was handled by over 75 women from various departments including engineering, airport services, catering, security and cargo.
The plane was piloted by Canadian Captain Patricia Bischoff and British First Officer Rebecca Lougheed while the crew was lead by Purser Weronika Formela from Poland.
A video released by the airline highlighted the major role that ‘superwomen’, as they called them, play in the company. The women on this particular flight were from more than 25 nationalities.
Over 40 percent of Emirates employees are women, 1,150 of which are Emirati women.
