IWD: Ethiopian Airlines Operates All-Women Flight to Washington


Africa’s largest airline, Ethiopian Airlines has made yet another history with an all-women functioned flight to the United States of America.

The flight which was operated by a Boeing 777-300ER, departed Addis Ababa on 7 March, 2020 on a flight to Washington DC with a brief stop in Dublin, Ireland.

While the flight crew flew the B777 to the US capital, other female professionals handled all the ground operations including flight dispatch, load control, ramp operation, on-board logistics, safety and security, catering as well as air traffic control.

Ethiopian has scored the all-female flight crew feat highlighting the airline’s progress in empowering African women, and the contribution of women to the socio-economic development of the continent.

The East African airline firmly believes that such remarkable flights inspire African women and young girls to dream big and realize their dreams not only in aviation, but also in science, technology, engineering, art and other fields.

As an equal opportunity employer, Ethiopian creates an enabling environment for women to become the next generation aviation experts. The airline has seen a remarkable rise in the number of women in different leadership positions.

Ethiopian Airlines has been operating all-female flights since 2015. The airline has so far flown to Bangkok, Kigali, Lagos, Buenos Aires and Oslo with all female crew.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
