QATAR Airways has announced that it will offer its passengers an exclusive ‘Think Pink’ experience in the sky as well in its lounges, offering custom-designed limited edition amenity kits and pink-themed special menus to mark the 2020 Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
For the fourth year, the airline has been showing commitment to raising awareness of breast cancer, offering passengers travelling on long-haul and ultra-long-haul flights in business class a luxury amenity bag designed in-house and created exclusively for Qatar Airways by stylish Italian luggage brand BRIC’S.
According to the Doha based airline, “the exclusive amenity kits are made from vegan leather and there are male and female options available. Both kits feature a unique zipper pull in the shape of the iconic breast cancer ribbon. This highly sought-after kit is further customised with a message imprinted on a band, reading: ‘Think pink and support the fight’. Each kit contains select products from Italy’s Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio, the environmentally friendly and innovative nutrition-centric olive oil company. The skin care range includes lip balm, hydrating facial mist, and anti-ageing moisturiser, as well as pink socks and eyeshades.
The airline also said that in addition, on flights departing from Doha, passengers traveling in business class will have the opportunity to experience exclusive pink-themed treats onboard such as pink guava and grape lemonade and assorted desserts with the iconic pink ribbon. On all ultra-long-haul flights departing from Doha, passengers will be served a special pink afternoon tea menu featuring raspberry macaroons and opera cake.
Qatar Airways’ Al Mourjan Business Lounge will feature pink flower arrangements, serve refreshing pink mocktails to passengers and offer a variety of pink sweet treats as well as the ‘Think Pink’ afternoon tea menu, which also includes a delicious selection of finger sandwiches, scones and pastries.
