JET AIRWAYS OPERATES ALL–WOMEN CREW FLIGHTS ON THE OCCASION OF ‘INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY’

On the occasion of International Women’s Day on 08th March, 2019, Jet Airways, India’s premier full-service international airline, is planning to operate four domestic flights with all-women Cockpit and Cabin Crew members. 

These planned domestic flights, 9W 346, 9W 355 (Mumbai-Delhi), 9W 358 (Delhi–Mumbai) and 9W 481 (Mumbai–Bengaluru), will be further managed exclusively by all-women teams from a cross-section of the business, including Engineering, Ground Handling, Ground Services, Security and Cabin Appearance Supervisors. Women aircraft Engineers, Technicians and Flight Dispatchers will attend to the technical services; while the non-technical work on the ground will be handled by women Duty Managers, Counter Staff and Security Officers highlighting the professionalism and capabilities of the airline’s women employees.

The airline will surprise select women guests on-board these flights by presenting them with gift hampers, where each goody bag will contain gifts from top-notch participating brands such as Colorbar Cosmetics, Jean-Claude Biguine, Paris Salon & Spa and Lemon Tree Hotels. Jet Airways’ International Women’s Day will be replete with Lucky Draws for its women guests on these select flights.
Rahul Taneja, Chief People Officer, Jet Airways, said, “At Jet Airways, our women employees are engaged in critical roles, rising to challenges, breaking gender stereotypes and being an integral part of the organisation. International Women’s Day gives us the opportunity to appreciate and thank our women colleagues throughout our (Jet Airways’) family for their industriousness, dedication, and professionalism.” 

Taneja added, “We have been steadily strengthening our workforce diversity over the years and we are very proud that women today account for 34 percent of our employees.”
