Gurgaon: International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. To celebrate ‘International Women’s Day’ in its true spirit, SpiceJet in association with Ms Kiran Bedi’s ‘India Vision Foundation’, ‘Navjyoti India Foundation’ and Art of Living is taking twenty selectively chosen women on a day-trip aboard SpiceJet’s All Women Crew flight to Art of Living’s Bangalore centre. These hand-picked ‘Women of Substance’ from villages and slums have been in the past associated with extreme societal situations such as violence, social setbacks, imprisonment among others. They all are the first time air travelers on a Delhi-Bangalore-Delhi flight.
SpiceJet aims to touch the lives of these women achievers in its own way and spend the entire day with them in Bangalore at an ‘Art of living’ centre where through yoga, meditation and various stress relieving exercises they would be taught the art of inner healing. SpiceJet also flew 10 flights across its network with an all women crew.
Mr. G. P. Gupta – Chief Administrative Officer & Accountable Manager, SpiceJet, said “SpiceJet salutes all women on the occasion of International Women’s Day for their achievements and impeccable contribution to the society at large. Successful womanhood is more of an urban connotation. With this all women flight we have tried to draw the attention of the world towards that silent majority of women in India’s rural and slums, who raise generations of farmers, labourers, soldiers, intellectuals etc against all odds.” “Today in SpiceJet’s flight with our all women cockpit and inflight crew and engineers on one side, while ‘Women of Substance’ from rural and slums on the other; we commemorate women’s day in its true universal spirit.,” he added further.
Ms. Kiran Bedi “SpiceJet believes in empowering the marginalized by taking them on their ‘wings’. We are grateful for what you did for our children; you are now doing it for our women of rural and urban communities. For all of them being in an airplane will be their first flight! Thank you SpiceJet for adding spice to the lives of the under privileged.”
