Air India flies into history

Whoever said the sky is the limit never met the flight crew from Air India.

According to CNN, the airline made history last week when its all-female crew completed a flight around the world. And the crew was completely comprised of women, says Fortune: everyone from the captains to the air-traffic controllers and cabin crew were women.

With the flight taking place in two parts, the team “flew from New Delhi to San Francisco last Monday, traveling over the Pacific Ocean,” reports CNN. “The crew completed a mandatory rest period before flying over the Atlantic back to New Delhi, completing the round-the-world trip.”

CNN also reports that a spokesperson for Air India said that they applied for a Guinness World record after completing the feat, with this flight serving as just one of a “series of all-women flights scheduled to mark International Women’s Day on March 8.”

Congratulations to the all-female team!
