Delta Completes Fifth
Annual All-Female Flight
In celebration of International Girls in Aviation
Day, Delta recently took to the skies with a
flight exclusively orchestrated by women.
That includes the pilot, gate
agents, TSA and flight control.
The flight carried 120 young women from Salt Lake
City, Utah, to NASA’s headquarters in Houston, Texas.
At NASA, the young women toured various buildings
and met with women from other “male-dominated
aviation workgroups,” such as astronaut Jeanette Epps.

Delta’s program: Women Inspiring Our Next
Generation (WING), which was started in 2015.
According to Delta, the program is an effort
to “diversify a male-dominated industry.” Beth Poole, General Manger of
