Malaysia Airlines Arranges Flight Fully Operated By All-Female Team To Celebrate IWD
What better way to celebrate women in conjunction with International Women’s Day than to commemorate their abilities and skills?
Malaysia Airlines definitely showcased the talents and roles of their female staff who are killing it in the aviation industry, by launching a special flight operated by a full-female team, from Kuala Lumpur to Kuching.
This is in accordance with their theme “Embrace Equity”.
From check-in through runway taxing and refuelling, the entire flight operations were managed by Malaysia Aviation Group’s (MAG) all-female staff. Aboard the flight, the air crew comprised Captain Noorsazrina Zulkifli as well as second officer Wong Wei Ming.
All passengers on the plane MH2520 received the airline’s iconic Pilot Polly plushie as a memento of the momentous occasion. The teddy bear was launched as part of Malaysia Airlines’ Women’s Day campaign last year.
This journey also served as component of MAG’s larger sustainability project, which takes into account economic, social, safety, and environment issues, besides concrete efforts to advance socioeconomic growth with to aim to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The organisation is dedicated to supporting and inspiring women to actively pursue their professional and entrepreneurial goals by fostering a culture that values inclusivity, diversity, and equality in terms of gender, colour, religion, and age, according to MAG group Chief Sustainability Officer Philip See.
“This is in line with our dedication to the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) 25by2025 effort in improving the role of women in aviation, in addition to the MAG Sustainability Plan, which acknowledges gender equality as a vital contributor in achieving socio-economic progress,” he stated, as reported by NST.
Happy International Women’s Day in advance!
