EgyptAir has pioneered International Women’s and Mother’s days celebrations through launching two planes fully piloted by women crew members, for the first time.

Minister of Civil Aviation Sherif Fathy has witnessed the take-off of the two flights from Cairo International Airport on Wednesday. The flights were heading to Abu Dhabi and Kuwait.

The first flight, heading to Abu Dhabi, was piloted by Captain Hasnaa Taymour along with First Officer Sarah Abdel-Fattah, 10 flight attendants and two female security members.

The second flight, heading to Kuwait, was piloted by Captain Heba Darwish along with First Officer Sarah Roshdy, five flight attendants, and two female security members.

The two commercial aircrafts that were piloted by the female crew members are Airbus 330 (first flight) and Boeing (800-737).

Fathy said that the Egyptian government has announced 2017 as the “Year of Women”, as it believes in the active role women play in the Egyptian Society.

On International Women’s Day, earlier this month, Dubai-based carrier “Emirates Airlines” decided that Egyptian Pilot Nevine Darwish will be the first Arab Egyptian woman to command the world’s biggest commercial aircraft Airbus 380.
