Brussels Airlines Operates All-Female Flight to Kigali and Entebbe for International Women’s Day

Published on : Wednesday, April 10, 2019

Brussels AirlinesBrussels Airlines advocates equal rights between men and women and – in a broader perspective – a more inclusive world in general. As a symbolic gesture on International Women’s Day, Brussels Airlines operates its flight to Kigali and Entebbe of 8 March with an all-female crew, to raise awareness about gender inequality in Europe as well as in Africa, the airline’s most important market.

 

 

A Brussels Airlines flight operated by an all-female crew is – fortunately – not a rarity anymore as 10.2% of the company’s pilots and 73% of its cabin crew are women. Nevertheless the company wants to underline the importance of a gender inclusive world and therefor Captain Anne, First Officer Katti and Cabin Crew Members Ann, Tania, Sylvie, Sophie, Ellen, Elke, Pascale, Gina and Sandy will operate flight SN467 to Kigali and Entebbe on international Women’s day.

 

 

Next to female flying staff, the airline employs women on all levels and in every department, leading to a total of 51.7% of its workforce. The company strives to support all employees, men and women, to ensure that every colleague can reach their full career potential, while maintaining a good work-life balance. It therefor has an HR policy with a strong focus on initiatives to create a healthy work-life balance with amongst others part time regime, flexible working hours, sabbatical and home working solutions.

 

 

I really feel equal to my male colleagues at work and I actually don’t really think about it that much. Never have I had the feeling that I couldn’t go forward with my career because I’m a women. Although there are moments when it looks like I have a very different approach on some things, but that just seems appreciated. No matter if you are a boy or a girl, man or a woman, every job is made for everybody, as long as you love what you do!
