Qatar Airways says it’s showing its continued support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by offering passengers an exclusive ‘Think Pink’ experience in the sky, as well as in Hamad International Airport (HIA) lounges.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; a cause that Qatar Airways is highly supportive of.

On flights departing from Doha this month, passengers travelling in First Class and Business Class will be offered a refreshing pink mocktail, a special ‘Think Pink’ menu featuring a themed afternoon tea, and desserts featuring the iconic breast cancer ribbon made from sugar paste.

Economy Class passengers are served an exclusive pink-themed cheesecake and offered the limited-edition breast cancer awareness amenity kit on select long-haul and ultra-long-haul flights.

Designed by Qatar Airways in collaboration with the stylish Italian luggage brand – BRIC’S, the airline says the limited-edition amenity kits are made from vegan leather and are offered in two different designs – a pink and white kit for female passengers, and a black kit for male passengers, both with the iconic breast cancer ribbon prints.

Each kit includes products from Italy’s Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio, the environmentally friendly olive oil company, including lip balm, hydrating facial mist, and anti-ageing moisturiser in special limited edition ‘pink’ branding.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are dedicated to raising awareness for breast cancer. This month is a reminder of the challenges that members of our Qatar Airways family have had to face, and the importance of support we provide for those diagnosed and in recovery, as we fight together to overcome this disease.

“We value the health of our passengers and women world-wide, and are proud to demonstrate our commitment by raising awareness of the importance of self-assessment during our annual support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”

At HIA, passengers can indulge in a unique ‘Think Pink’ experience at both Al Safwa First Lounge and Al Mourjan Business Lounge, which consists of bespoke signature ‘Pink Berry’ mocktail, a ruby hot chocolate topped with pink marshmallows and a ‘pink themed’ afternoon tea assortment that includes delicious finger sandwiches, scones and pastries.
