All-female Air India crew lands at TIA

As the aviation sector continues to set the bar high, an all-female crew operated an Air India flight from New Delhi to Kathmandu for the first time.
Siddhartha Roy, country manager of Air India, told The Himalayan Times that the AI-215 flight, which took off at 2:22pm from Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, landed at Tribhuvan Innternational Airport in Kathmandu at 3:42pm.

“At least 115 passengers were on board the Airbus 321 jet. The entire show — cabin crew, and cockpit crew — was run by women,” Roy said.

Commanded by senior captain Renu and first officer Kala Mehra, the same squad flew the jet back to New Delhi from Kathmandu in the evening.  Air India operates two flights daily from New Delhi and four flights a week from Kolkata to Kathmandu.
