In celebration of Emirati Women’s Day, five female first officers at Emirates Airline helped put the spotlight on women in aviation by flying to five continents on the same day.
The airline released a video on its social media platforms showcasing the five women spreading their wings – a inspiring message from the UAE to the world.
“Emirati women are icons of tolerance, exemplifying the core values held by our community via their care, determination, ability to nurture future generations, and pursue success in their various fields of work,” chairman and CEO, Emirates Airline & Group, HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum declared. “Their hard work and talent have helped build our company and nation and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all Emirati women for setting new benchmarks and continuing to make us proud.”

Their professions span a myriad of roles across the company, from operational departments like Flight Operations and Engineering to frontline roles at Emirates Airport Services, Commercial Sales and Customer Affairs, to corporate functions like HR, Group IT, Finance and Commercial, amongst others.
