Ethiopia all-women flight marks 8 March

2019-03-08 | Since 9 Month

Ethiopian Airlines is marking International Women's Day by operating an all-women flight from Addis Ababa to Oslo.

The airline announced this in a tweet with a reference to the Beatles' song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds: "The Lucys are about to control the skies for the 5th time, flying to Oslo on the coming March 8."

The flight will be operated by female professionals in the sky as well as on the ground, the airline posted on Facebook.

This means airport operations, flight dispatch, load control, ramp operation, on-board logistics, safety and security, catering as well as air-traffic control are to be carried out entirely by women.

Ethiopian Airlines Chief Executive Officer Tewolde GabreMariam explained that the initiative celebrates women on a continent where "gender inequality still persists".
