Jazeera Airways First Flight with All-Female Crew Took Off


 Jazeera Airways, Kuwait’s leading low-cost airline, became the first Kuwaiti carrier to fly with an all-female deck and cabin crew.

The flight commemorating International Women’s Day flew from Kuwait to Riyadh, on March 08, encouraging diversity, gender parity and women’s empowerment. This step is a significant achievement especially in an industry considered male oriented. The eight-member crew including the pilot and co-pilot flew Jazeera’s Airbus A320neo carrying 172 passengers.

This initiative by Jazeera Airways also highlights this year’s International Women’s Day theme to #EmbraceEquity.

Jazeera Airways first took off from Kuwait in 2005 and now flies 19 aircraft to 59 destinations across the Middle East, Central and South Asia, Africa, and Europe. With an employee base of over 1,200 employees from 68 nationalities, the airline encourages diversity, inclusion and gender parity. The airline is also committed to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) 25by2025, an initiative to change the gender balance within the aviation industry.
