Under the command of Captain Ugyen Dema who has been flying with Drukair since 2006, senior officer Sonam Lhamo and flight engineer Sonam Deki Tshering, who is the first female licensed aircraft engineer in Bhutan, the flight was operated. And the flight flew with 180 passengers on board.  The queen of Bhutan Jetsun Pema met the all female crew. Her Majesty congratulated Drukair on making history.

“We are immensely proud that we have women staff in every aspect of our aviation field. Women are an integral part of our success story from the start and with this dedicated flight we honor and celebrate their indispensable contribution to Drukair and the aviation industry in Bhutan,” said the CEO of Drukair, Tandi Wangchuk.

To make the flight even more special the airlines had a lucky draw contest for all its female passengers and three winners won some prizes.
