Airlines show off their Movember mustaches

Posting in Cancer

Movember, the special month in which men don their finest—and wackiest—facial hair, is truly taking off this year.

The annual campaign encourages men across the globe to grow mustaches of their own all November long in order to raise awareness for prostate cancer. This year, several airlines have been getting on the mustachioed fun, decking out their planes with faux-facial hair.

Select British Airways, Qantas, and WestJet planes are all looking particularly dapper this month, with mustaches painted below the windows on the fronts of their planes. Each company has pledged its support to the campaign and all hope to raise hefty sums for prostate cancer research and men’s health initiatives.

“Last year we raised over £80,000 by cultivating our facial topiary,” British Airways stated on its Facebook page. “This year we hope to do even better, inspired by colleagues like Kyle Patchett and a very dapper looking A319.”
