Pink planes to support Komen Foundation

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Wednesday, American Airlines showed its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by highlighting their "Fly for the Cure Campaign."

American Eagle and American Airlines have pink ribbon planes that fly out and around the system year-round.

Today one of those planes touched down at Lubbock's Preston Smith International Airport.

Passengers had a chance to pick up pink cupcakes, pink ribbons and sign names of those they were flying for.

The general manager for American Eagle here in Lubbock says they're happy to partner with the Komen Foundation.

"We believe it's a worthwhile organization that effects multiple or significant numbers of Americans," said GM Benjamin Taylor. "And it's our chance to participate in something that is a nationwide event."

American Airlines takes donations for the campaign throughout the year. To donate, visit the American Airlines Facebook page.
