SQ is the last local passenger carrier to welcome such a move
By Elizabeth Lee
For the first time, Singapore Airlines (SIA) welcomes on board two female commercial pilots.
They were recruited as cadet pilots by the airline in August last year and will undergo training in Singapore and Australia over the next two to three years.
Even though subsidiaries SilkAir and Scoot already have female pilots in their employ, this is a first for the national carrier.
SIA representative Nicholas Ionides says that the airline has about 2,000 pilots but explained that there is no target set for the number of women pilots to be hired. “We will recruit whoever is the most qualified,” he said.
According to the International Society of Women Airline Pilots, women make up about 5 per cent of the global pilot population. In Singapore, the figure stands at less than 1 per cent.
