Over the next 24 months, Mustique has pledged to "give back" by donating funds to Sunnybrook Foundation in Toronto to assist with breast cancer research. The airline will also donate funds to provide care and treatment to women in St. Vincent and the Grenadines who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. These donations will be underwritten, in part, by dedicating a portion of operational revenues from Mustique Airways, whose fleet of five aircraft is based in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Mustique Airways has provided private charter services and scheduled airline service throughout the Eastern Caribbean for more than 35 years.
John Palmer, owner of Mustique Airways says, "It is important to all of us at Mustique Airways to support the extraordinary team at Sunnybrook Fou
ndation as they pursue revolutionary treatments and a cure for breast cancer."
In the summer of 2014, Mustique Airways had one aircraft in the company's fleet, their Commander 500, painted to commemorate the initiative. Mustique Airways features Sunnybrook's unique approach to life-saving and improving breast cancer research and treatment through detailed features in their in-flight publication. The airline's crews and employees also sport lapel pins, pink lanyards, and the company will use special boarding passes, baggage tags, and travel documents through August 2016.
Jonathan worked directly with Craig Barnett, owner of Scheme Designers, and Alicia Solsman, Director of Special Designs Services, to design the pink ribbon motif, and in conjunction with airbrush artist John Stahr to apply the unique scheme to the company's Commander 500.
