The airline announced on Tuesday (March 6) that it will operate flights operated by an all-women crew on several domestic and worldwide routes.

Air India-India's national carrier airline would be operating several all-women crew flights for marking the International Women's Day which is falling on the 8 of March.

In addition to the in-flight crew, an all-woman team worked on all "above" and "below wing" activities in the lead-up to departure.

Air India has said that a unique feature of its all-woman crew flights is that most operations from the cockpit to cabin crew, check-in staff, doctor, commercial staff, ground operators, to technicians, engineers, flight dispatchers, and safety and quality auditors are mainly performed by women.

At the University of Southern Queensland a special lunch will be held which organisers said would embrace this years International Women's Day theme, #PressForProgress. According to Emirates, this mirrors the overall diversity within the Emirates Group which has more than 160 nationalities on its payroll.

Abdulaziz Al Ali, executive vice president of human resources at Emirates, commented: "Every flight that we operate needs an entire ecosystem of staff from a number of business units to come together and work seamlessly".
