Qatar Airways Marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month with All-Female Crew
Qatar Airways extended its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month with an all-female crew of 15, operating flight QR95 from Doha to Zurich. The two female pilots and 13 cabin crew staffed the service onboard an Airbus A350-900, one of the most technologically advanced aircraft in the Qatar Airways fleet. The award-winning airline also distributed special ’Think Pink’ wristbands and limited edition pink amenity kits to passengers on board.
Qatar Airways’ Chief Executive Officer, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are extremely proud to see our all-female crew highlight the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness onboard flight QR95 from Doha to Zurich. Awareness and education are everything in the fight against cancer, and Qatar Airways is committed to reinforcing the message of early detection and promotion of a healthy lifestyle to help eradicate this devastating disease.”
Flight QR95 is the latest in a series of ‘Think Pink’ Breast Cancer Awareness Month events and activities organized by the multiple award-winning airlines, in association with Qatar Cancer Society (QCS), throughout October 2019. Earlier this month, Qatar Airways joined forces with Hamad International Airport (HIA), Qatar Aviation Services (QAS), and Qatar Duty-Free (QDF) to arrange activities for staff including pink giveaways and a series of QCS lectures at HIA. Free mammogram screenings by qualified medical staff were also made available for all eligible employees, and the airline’s annual Charity Bazaar fundraising event also returned to a variety of Qatar Airways locations.
