Woman-run Alitalia flights take to the skies for March 8


Rome, March 8 - Italian flagship carrier Alitalia
is celebrating International Women's Day with
all-female-operated flights from Rome to Milan and back.
The first of two Airbus A-320 flights piloted and attended
exclusively by women, flight AZ 2028, took off Friday morning
from Rome's Fiumicino airport at 9:00 am local time.
Again at 11.00 am, AZ 2045 from Milan Linate returned to
Both routes were in the hands of commander Barbara
Plantulli Lambert, co-pilot Valentina Leone and three flight
attendants Giovanna Ruiu, Francesca Anzil and Matilde Marcelli.
"What does this particular day mean? It is an
encouragement for all women to fly high and fast because we
can," Lambert said.
All boarding women passengers were given a sprig of mimosa
flower, the symbol of Women's Day in Italy.
In addition, all crew wore a badge provided by the
Italian emergency hotline Telefono Rosa to raise attention for
the issue of violence against women.
"Today's initiative is just one part of Alitalia's broad
Corporate Social Responsibility program," the company said.
