We’ve got an all-women taxi fleet, and now the UAE has now launched their latest idea – an all-women operated airline company.

The UAE is making it in the history books after becoming the first country in the world to launch an all-woman operated airline services company. LGO International FZC, the company behind the idea, have decided to cater to more conservative families in the region, who perhaps wish to travel in a male-free zone. Sorry gents.

Unfortunately, LGO International aren’t running a commercial airline similar to say, Emirates – you won’t see ladies queuing up at the airport for it. However, they are serving as a company who sell and rent customisable private planes to business-savvy women, giving them the option to travel jet around in luxury without any pesky men lurking about.

If you haven’t the cash to splash on kitting yourself out with your own all-women private plane, the rental price range of one of their planes falls between Dhs12,800 and Dhs36,800.

LGO International cover all possibilities, from sourcing a particular private aircraft for their clients, organising an all-women crew, if desired, and fitting out the interior to the customer’s taste. You can even opt for the installation of a cinema room, games room, bathroom and shower.

Whilst an all-women airline may not appeal to the mainstream traveller, the service is predicted to be popular with more conservative families.

CEO of the company Emmanuel Dubuisson said in an interview with Gulf News: “If a particular customer cares more about the number of years of experience of the pilot than his or her gender, then LGO International will focus on this requirement.”
