PassionAir makes history with all-female flight crew

The PassionAir flight OP 178 became the first ever all-female crew to fly from Accra to Tamale.

From the flight deck to the cabin, the all-female crew made history on Saturday, February 20.

The all-female first flight crew include Lead Cabin Crew Judith Amoasi, Captain Eva Gichuru, First Officer Shelia Njonjo and Cabin Crew Judith Boachie.

According to the Ghanaian airline, this initiative which now serves as a “historic moment” seeks to inspire and empower all women across the world.

Pilot-in-command, Captain Eva Gichuru is of the view that when given the mandate, women can live beyond their potential.

She stated: “This flight indicates that whatever men can do, women can do and even better when given equal opportunities.”

PassionAir is a Ghanaian airline that started scheduled domestic operations in Ghana in August 2018.

The Ghanaian airline makes daily flight from Accra to Kumasi and to Tamale with strict enforcement of the Covid-19 safety protocols after the lift of restriction of air movement by President Akufo-Addo.
