Azul Airlines is Pink at Viracopos Airport,Campinas,Brazil!

Azul Airlines has always promoted breast cancer awareness.

 By painting planes pink they have made the campaign a daily not yearly event. 

Friday I was at the Viracopos Airport in Campinas on my way to Rio de Janeiro where I presented Module III Marketing and Sales for Consultants of the IBCO Course for Consultants.

As a male breast cancer survivor it was great to see both ” Pink” versions together, Embraer and ATR getting ready to travel again from the Azul Viracopos hub. You can see, I like PINK.

The view of the planes reminded me how fortunate I am to have discovered  breast cancer at an early stage.
