Pakistan’s First All-Women Pilots Flight
Flight PK-623 created a unique aviation record for the national air carrier as both the pilot and co-pilot were women. In the past, flights have either had a male pilot or co-pilot. The passengers aboard the plane did not know about all-female crew flight until it had made a landing. It was a surprise for some of them when they saw the PIA station master garlanding the crew members on their successful flight in the lounge of Lahore’s Allama Iqbal airport. Captain Ayesha Rabia Naveed was in command of the first all-women crew of the national air carrier which transported 40 passengers from the federal capital to Lahore in the afternoon.
