For the first time, women pilots operated Air India’s Mumbai-New York non-stop flight on March 8 to commemorate International Women’s Day.
Captain Rashmi Miranda along with Captain Sunita Narula were given the command of the Boeing 777-200 long-range aircraft which will fly through 10 time zones for 14 hours. Captain Swati Rawal and Captain Neha Kulkarni were the first officers.
The flight to the John F Kennedy airport in New York is approximately of 14 hours duration and operated with a double set of an all-women crew and supported by women of the National Aviation Company of India Limited (NACIL).
