Three years with FlyPink

We are excited to announce, that for the third year in a row we will be supporting FlyPink!  For the past two years during October, in exchange for a donation, our pilots swapped their golden epaulettes for pink versions.

Ground staff are also given the chance to be involved with special FlyPink lanyards and pens available to all.

This year we have gone one step further! For the first time Cabin Crew will be able to wear either a pink tie for the men or a pink scarf for the women.  Pilots will still have the chance to wear pink shoulder epaulettes.  Furthermore, we will have lanyards, pins and coffee mugs for ground staff, so all our staff can get involved!

Some of our planes will also be wearing the pink ribbon to show our support for those suffering from breast cancer.  An A320 and an A330 will be sporting the FlyPink decal to carry the message throughout Europe and the world.

 

If you spot any of our Planes, Pilots or crew Flying Pink, please share on social media or if you would like to donate click the link below!  All the money raised goes to a chosen cancer charity in each country our staff operate from.

“We have had an amazing response to FlyPink in the past, we hope to beat our own record this year, by inviting everyone to join.” says Linton Foat.

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.

The idea of ​​FlyPink originally comes from Australia; Captain Susan McHaffie was the first to wear pink epaulettes.  With initiative from Thomas Cook Airlines UK pilot Linton Foat, the pilots in Thomas Cook Group Airlines were the first in Europe to support FlyPink in 2016.
