National, MARCH 8, 2024: Reiterating its commitment to uphold gender equality, Air India group today announced a slew of activities celebrating International Women’s Day.

A total of 15 all-women crew flights were operated in the domestic and international sectors today. Over 15% of the cockpit crew of Air India are women – making it an airline with one of the largest number of women pilots. 

Women employees constitute as much as 51% of Air India’s workforce. In the last two years since the homecoming of Air India to the Tata group, there has been a sharp rise in the number of women employees in every sphere of the airline’s activities. At Air India Express, over 13% of pilots are women and close to 50% of the workforce comprises women employees.

Air India group has organised week-long programmes to inspire women employees across the network through webinars and live sessions with experts in various fields and role models for wider awareness and inspiration. 

As a special gesture to customers, Air India Express is offering free seat selection and priority boarding services to all women passengers today through its mobile app and website. Air India Loyalty Programme Flying Returns is offering its women members a fast-track limited-time opportunity to skip the queue and upgrade to Silver Edge Club, which will offer them exclusive benefits like 15% more reward points, complimentary upgrades, and priority check-in services.

This year’s Women’s Day theme ‘Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress’ reiterates the importance of achieving gender equality and well-being of women in all aspects of life, which resonates with the Tata group and Air India’s ethos of offering equal opportunities to all employees acknowledging that diversity and inclusion results in driving innovation and growth.

The first phase of this transformation, the taxi phase was recently concluded, and focused on fixing the basics. These included bringing back to service many long grounded aircraft, addition of talent across flying and ground functions, rapid upgradation of technology and strengthening of customer care initiatives amongst others.
