Saudi’s First Flight With an All-Female Crew

Flyadeal, a budget subsidiary of flag carrier Saudia, operated Saudi’s first flight with an all-female crew, officials said Saturday.

The flight took off the capital Riyadh to the Red Sea coastal city of Jeddah on Thursday, flyadeal spokesman Emad Iskandarani said.

According to Iskandarani, mostly all the cabin crew consisted of Saudi women, including the first officer, but not the captain, who was a foreign woman.

In 2019, the Kingdom announced the first flight with a female Saudi co-pilot.

Goals include more than tripling annual traffic to 330 million passengers by the end of the decade, drawing $100 billion in investments to the sector by 2030, establishing a new national flag carrier, constructing a new “mega airport” in Riyadh and moving up to five million tonnes of cargo each year.
