Since 1990, the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc has been a pioneer in innovation as the only women’s rally raid in the world that takes place 100% off-road. The unique event brings women aged 18 to 71 from around the world together in the Moroccan desert. From the first days, the rally has been developing a new vision for motorsport: no speeding and no GPS – just old-school navigation and the spirit of adventure.
The women who take part in this rally, known as “Gazelles”, are of different generations, social backgrounds and nationalities. In 4x4s, crossovers, quad bikes, SSVs or trucks, they join to experience the unique competition based on the values of tolerance, solidarity and determination, where respect for the host country is a priority through the rally’s non-profit mission, which cares about the environment.
Jetex continually reaffirms a commitment to a diverse workforce as it is dedicated to the encouragement and advancement of women in all aviation career fields and interests. In celebration of the 30th edition of the event, Manon Woitellier and Ingrid Laboute from the European Office of Jetex will join the rally to raise awareness and celebrate courage, loyalty, solidarity, environmental and social impact – the values shared both by the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc and Jetex.
Throughout two weeks, from 18 September to 2 October 2021, Jetex invites you to follow the progress of Manon and Ingrid (Team 274) on its Instagram account where it will share daily news as Team Jetex experiences an adventure of a lifetime. With five locations across Morocco and the flagship Jetex Marrakech private terminal, Jetex will also host a number of activities to support and encourage its first-ever team to participate in the legendary rally.
