United Airlines' Girls in Aviation Day events span 2 continents and 6 countries
United Airlines will host hundreds of girls at a dozen airports served by the global airline in the United States and Europe as part of Women in Aviation International (WAI) Girls in Aviation Day. Throughout the airline’s international operation, United will welcome girls ages 8 to 17 from various nonprofit organizations to learn from women, shadow their day-to-day roles and hear about various career opportunities available in aviation. As part of the day, the girls will experience a behind-the-scenes look at United Airlines’ operations at a busy airport and see first-hand how exciting working in the aviation industry can be.
