In 2021 for the first time, an all-women pilot team of Air India led by Zoya Agarwal covered the world's longest air route from San Franciso (SFO) in the United States of America to Bengaluru city in India, covering the North Pole.
The US-based aviation museum was impressed by the achievement of all Air India's women pilots and thus they offered a place in their museum.
