It has been quite a few weeks for the women in aviation movement, with an inspirational trio smashing glass ceilings to reach senior, global leadership positions never before held by women.
It is genuinely exciting to see such recent developments, marking a significant stride for women in aviation.
Joanna Geraghty was appointed CEO of Jet Blue, the first time, a major U.S. airline will have a woman in such position. Amy Leversidge became General Secretary at the British Airline Pilots’ Association (BALPA)'s National Executive Council, the first female to hold the role in the organisation's 86-year history.
While Mitsuko Tottori will become the first woman CEO at Japan Airlines on April 1st, having joined the company as cabin crew staff and worked her way to the top. Tottori's rise is particularly noteworthy given Japan's dismal record in gender equality compared to other nations.
At Halldale, we salute the three women's achievements and hope they pave the way for others to follow.
