Alliance Airlines is taking breast cancer awareness to new heights, announcing the specially designed Pink Lady aircraft will land in Bundaberg tomorrow.
The new design for the VH-NUU Fokker 70 was created in support of Australians affected by breast cancer and to promote the work of the Breast Cancer Network of Australia (BCNA).
From tomorrow the plane – dubbed the Pink Lady – will operate Alliance’s regular passenger transport services including Bundaberg, Gladstone and Port Macquarie.
Over the next 12 months, Alliance aims for VH-NUU to visit as many regional cities and towns in Australia as possible.
Alliance Airlines’ chief executive Lee Schofield said the company was proud to support BCNA.
“Throughout Australia, from our main ports to regional cities and towns, the Pink Lady is a visual reminder of this cause, and helps women and families affected by breast cancer know to source support from BCNA,” Mr Schofield said.
“Since 2015, Alliance has been supporting the work of BCNA through our workplace giving programme, and a number of fundraising initiatives including Alliance’s Hangar2Hangar charity cycling event.
“During our 2018 event, we met several breast cancer survivors who have been supported by BCNA. Their courage and appreciation of BCNA’s services motivated us to commit to the Pink Lady.
“In 2020 I will ride in Alliance’s Hangar2Hangar again with personnel and supporters in South Australia.
“Our goal for this event is to raise $100,000 for BCNA.”
