Aerocare has proudly supported the FlyPink initiative during October, with our QantasLink teams wearing pink ribbons for 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 in 2015 saw more than 3,000 Qantas Group pilots swap their normal gold epaulettes (shoulder stripes) for pink epaulettes.
This year they were joined by Qantas and QantasLink cabin crew who swapped their silver wing badges for pink, and customer service agents and ground crew (including Aerocare) wore pink ribbons.
Aerocare is the largest ground handler within the Australian and New Zealand region, with more than 3,000 team members currently servicing 3,200 flights per week and 41,200 passengers per day.
