The flight which traveled a distance of 14,500 km was operated as part of International Women’s Day by national carrier Air India and took a whopping 17 hours to complete.
The all-women’s flight took place on March 6 and flew non-stop from Delhi to San Francisco.
“This year for the first time, on the world’s longest non-stop flight, entire flight operations from cockpit crew to cabin crew, check-in staff, doctor, customer care staff, ATC (air traffic control) and the entire ground-handling… were handled by women,” Air India said in a release.
The carrier currently employs around 3,800 women including female pilots, cabin crew, engineers, technicians, doctors, security personnel and executives.
