Air New Zealand shows young women the sky’s the limit on Suffrage 125

September 20, 2018 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Air New Zealand has marked Suffrage Day by looking back at the paths women have forged in the nation’s aviation industry and laying the ground work for more young women to consider aviation careers.

The airline’s WINGs network (Women Inspiring the Next Generation) kicked off the day by giving nine young women a unique opportunity to experience what a career in aviation is like.  Some of the young women joined all female operating crews on the airline’s first flights out of Auckland this morning (A320, ATR and Q300) while others paired up with female line maintenance engineers to experience ground support roles.

Air New Zealand Chief People Officer Jodie King says it was a privilege to offer the young women a behind the scenes experience.

“Encouraging more young women to consider aviation careers is a key focus for our WINGs group so it was exciting to be able to offer these aspiring pilots, cabin crew and engineers the opportunity to go on board and in the hangar to spend time with women who already perform these roles,” says Ms King.

The young women were chosen to take part through the airline’s own Aviation Institute as well as through its partnerships with The Walsh Memorial Pilot Mentoring Programme, Southern Wings, First Foundation and local schools.
