Saudi Airshow welcomes Women in Aviation for the first time

RIYADH, September 10, 2020

Saudi International Airshow 2021, to be held from February 16 to 18 in Riyadh, has announced the inaugural participation of the Women in Aviation Middle East Chapter, a non-profit association dedicated to providing opportunities to women striving for careers in the aviation industry, in the event.
 
Launched in the UAE, this chapter shines a light on female role models in the Middle East to demonstrate the many opportunities for women in the aviation sector. It is fuelled by the possibilities of supporting current and future generations of women to achieve their goals and ambitions as they work side by side with men in the industry, said a statement.
 
Saudi International Airshow forms part of the Vision 2030 program as the aviation sector continues to play an essential role in the diversification and expansion of the Saudi economy. Since Saudi Arabia has also included women’s rights in Vision 2030, exhibiting companies are supporting women and making more jobs available in aviation, it said.
 
WAI-ME aims to bring together women working in all areas of aviation across the Middle East to inspire and encourage future generations of women to consider a fulfilling career in aviation, and  is committed to ensuring its vision, mission & goals are comprehensively realised, it said.
 
“We are delighted that the WAI-ME chapter will join us in February as it will help to cultivate a culture of understanding and appreciation for the Chapter’s vision within the local community, and the region as a whole. Women bring so much to aviation and WAI-ME is invaluable in supporting women at an extremely exciting time for Middle Eastern aviation,” commented Samantha Chastang, Executive Sales Manager for the event.   - TradeArabia News Service
