Qatar Airways showed its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month with an all-female crew of 15 operating Flight QR95 from Doha to Zurich on October 9.
Two female pilots and an all-female cabin crew of 13 staffed the service on board an Airbus A350-900, one of the most technologically advanced aircraft in the Qatar Airways fleet.
Passengers received a special on-board announcement from the captain, along with Qatar Airways ‘Think Pink’ wristbands and limited-edition pink BRICs amenity kits during the service to the Swiss city.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive HE Akbar al-Baker said, “We are extremely proud to see our all-female crew highlight the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness on board flight QR95 from Doha to Zurich.
“Awareness and education is 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 organised by the multiple-award-winning airline, in association with Qatar Cancer Society (QCS), throughout October, a press statement noted.
Earlier this month, Qatar Airways joined forces with Hamad International Airport (HIA), Qatar Aviation Services and Qatar Duty Free to arrange activities for staff, including pink giveaways and a series of QCS lectures at HIA. Free mammogram screenings by qualified medical staff were made available for all eligible employees, and the airline’s annual Charity Bazaar fundraising event also returned to a variety of Qatar Airways locations, the statement added.
Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Airline’ at the 2019 World Airline Awards, managed by international air transport rating organisation Skytrax.
It was also named ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’, ‘World’s Best Business Class’ and ‘Best Business Class Seat’, in recognition of its Business Class experience, Qsuite. It is the only airline to have been awarded the coveted ‘Skytrax Airline of the Year’ title five times.
Qatar Airways currently operates a fleet of more than 250 aircraft via its hub, HIA, to more than 160 destinations worldwide. The airline has recently launched an array of new destinations, including Rabat, Morocco; Izmir, Turkey; Malta; Davao, the Philippines; Lisbon, Portugal; and Mogadishu, Somalia.
It will add Langkawi, Malaysia and Gaborone, Botswana, to its extensive route network in December 2019; Luanda, Angola, in March 2020 and Osaka, Japan, in April 2020.
