Qantas group employees flypink for Breast Cancer Research..!

Qantas

Qantas Group employees will FlyPink from 1 October, to show their support during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

FlyPink is an initiative started by QantasLink Captain Susan McHaffie whose aunt was diagnosed and beat breast cancer. Joining the airline in 2013, Susan was inspired by the National Breast Cancer Foundation-branded pink QantasLink aircraft to find a way to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research that would encourage airlines around the world to join together for the cause.

The launch of FlyPink last year saw more than 3,000 Qantas Group pilots swap their normal gold epaulettes (shoulder stripes) for pink epaulettes. This year, they will be joined by Qantas and QantasLink cabin crew who will swap their silver wing badges for pink, customer service agents in our airports and lounges will wear pink ribbons and ground crew will wear pink caps.qantas-cabin-crew

 

QantasLink Captain Susan McHaffie said she was heartened to see more employees across the airline join forces to support FlyPink this year.

“With more of our team members involved this year, I have high hopes that together we can raise $100,000 for breast cancer research,” she said.

“My ultimate aim is to see other airlines around the world joining us in support of FlyPink. I hope this October I’ll walk past a pilot I don’t know in an international airport wearing pink epaulettes in support of breast cancer research.

QantasLink Chief Pilot, Captain Adrian Young said Qantas was proud to continue its support of FlyPink.

“Qantas is really proud to show our support for a terrific initiative that was the brainchild of one of our own pilots, and most importantly help raise vital funds for breast cancer research,” he said.

“As a global carrier, we will support our crew both on the ground and in the air to take the FlyPink initiative from Australia to the world, and are challenging other airlines to join us.”

The NBCF welcomed the initiative and thanked Qantas for their generosity. Proceeds from the Qantas FlyPink campaign will directly support NBCF’s life-changing breast cancer research projects around Australia.

Every day in 2016, 44 Australian women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer and eight women die from the disease, leaving countless families devastated[i]. The only way to solve this is to improve how breast cancer is managed and treated through targeted and robust research. Funding breast cancer research means that all Australians with the disease will live longer and better lives, ultimately preventing deaths So far, NBCF funded research has helped develop better therapies, greater understanding of possible ways to stop the spread of breast cancer to other areas, and improved quality of life for patients and their families.

Pink epaulettes, pink wings, pink ribbons and pink caps will be available to all 3,300 Qantas Group pilots, 7000 Qantas and QantasLink cabin crew, 2500 airport and lounge team members and 2000 ground crew, who are encouraged to make a donation and wear pink with pride in October.

Qantas employees will use the month of October to raise money through a number of other activities including National Breast Cancer Foundation collection tins in employee areas and FlyPink themed breakfasts around the country.

FlyPink branded snack boxes and cupcakes will be served on Qantas and QantasLink flights, as well as pink biscuits and cocktails in the domestic Business Lounges in support of the campaign.

The QANTAS is selling 1,000 fully Stocked carts taken from Boeing 747

The QANTAS is selling 1,000 fully Stocked carts taken from Boeing 747: Qantas is opening its memorabilia storage shed to the Australian public, offering 1000 Qantas 747 galley carts stocked with a range of items from champagne and Australian red and white wine to Tim Tams, PJs and an exclusive-to-Qantas First Class Sheridan throw.

The bar carts were removed from the airline’s recently retired and much-loved 747 aircraft before they were flown to the Californian desert.

Qantas operated various incarnations of the 747 “Queen of the Skies” for almost 50 years before retiring the jumbo jet six months early as part of its response to the COVID-19 crisis. The farewell of the last Qantas 747 in July inspired an outpouring of affection and nostalgia from the Australian public.

Qantas Executive Manager of Product and Service, Phil Capps, said the airline wanted to offer up a unique opportunity for enthusiasts to own a physical piece of the 747 legacy, particularly at a time when travel was out of reach for many.

“These pre-loved carts served Qantas and our customers well during their world travels from London and Los Angeles to Singapore and Santiago, with each one averaging around 2,000 flights. While we no longer have use for them, they still have life in them, especially for those with an appreciation for aviation collectables and an eye for design.

“There has been huge demand for Qantas 747 memorabilia and Frequent Flyers have expressed keen interest to convert the bespoke inflight trolley into everything from lamp stands to storage units. The fact they come fully stocked with some of Qantas’ most popular on-board service items will hopefully inspire some high-flying fun at home.”

Mr Capps added, “We know people have been ordering Qantas Wine to enjoy at home and our Qantas ‘iso care kits’ featuring the PJs sold out within hours.  The bar carts offer the trifecta of wine, PJs and a piece of aviation history.”
