Qatar Airways hosts special ‘Think Pink’ flight for breast cancer awareness

Qatar has shown its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by drawing a pink ribbon in the sky.

The airline operated a special ‘Think Pink’ flight, exclusively crewed and piloted by women, from ground operations, technical, and dispatch teams to the flight deck and cabin crew.

Flight QR9901 took off from Hamad International Airport (HIA), on Saturday 17 October at 9am local time, and landed back 65 minutes later after completing its special flight.

The flight path, which traced the shape of a pink ribbon, attracted the attention of many who tuned in live to tracked the flight.

The Think Pink flight carried exclusively female passengers who were invited as special guests and received a special Think Pink service including announcements from the captain, pink-themed food and beverages along with wristbands and limited-edition pink BRICs amenity kits.

“Qatar Airways is a very strong supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and all the incredibly hard work that goes into research and development to help beat breast cancer,” Qatar CEO Akbal Al Baker said.

“Together, we hope to reach as many people as possible, and help save lives.”

Flight QR9901 is the latest in a month-long program organised by the airline in October to raise awareness of breast cancer prevention and control for its thousands of employees worldwide, as well as passengers and the general public.

Earlier this month, Qatar Airways introduced an exclusive Think Pink experience for passengers in the sky as well in its lounges, offering custom-designed limited edition amenity kits and pink-themed special menus on select flights throughout the month of October.
