PassionAir operated its first ever all-female crewed flight on Saturday, 20 February 2021. The flight, OP 178 from Accra to Tamale, was entirely “womanned” by women; from the flight deck to the cabin.
Captain Eva Gichuru, pilot-in-command said, “This flight indicates that, whatever men can do, women can do and even better when given equal opportunities.”
This historic moment for the airline may after all serve turn into a symbol of empowerment and inspiration to women all over the world.
The same crew later operated the last flight at 1844 hours to Kumasi on the same day.
Other female crew members that aided in this historical flight with PassionAir’s Bombadier Dash 8 Q400 were; First officer Shelia Njonjo, Lead cabin crew Judith Amoasi and Cabin crew Judith Boachie.
