As the company announced, it will make a series of flights both inside and outside India, with women in the cockpit and the cabin of the aircraft.

According to the Times of India website, India’s National Air Carrier was the first airline to operate in 1985 with a purely female crew.

Air India also claims to own a world-class record of this largest flight with a purely female crew on the New Delhi-San Francisco-New Delhi route.

World Women’s Day is celebrated on 8 March each year and is rooted in the protests of women in the early 20th century in Europe and the US, which demanded equal rights, better working conditions and voting rights.

It was instituted in 1997 by the United Nations (UN).
