Our pilots are going pink for October

Captain David FlyPink

For the month of October you may notice some of our pilots swapping the usually gold stripes and wearing pink stripes instead. This is all to show support for breast cancer care and the global initiative FlyPink.

What is FlyPink?

FlyPink is a global aviation industry initiative supporting organisations around the world that provide care and research for breast cancer, to help save lives.  It is with great pride that our pilots will support this cause by swapping their normal airline epaulettes for pink versions during the month of October. Wearing pink epaulettes, was an original idea from Captain Susan McHaffie, in Australia but Thomas Cook Group Airlines will be the first airline to join this initiative from Europe.

Motivation to do something for a close friend and a respected colleague was the reason behind UK Captain Linton Foat suggesting this for Thomas Cook Airlines. If you’d like to support this great cause you can make a donation on this JustGiving page.
