Jetstar hosts Australia’s Highest Morning Tea

  • Supporting the Cancer Council in a unique and fun way on-board Jetstar flights

Australia’s low fares airline Jetstar will host Australia’s Highest Morning Tea to coincide with the Cancer Council’s annual fundraiser, Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.

On all Jetstar flights across Australia on Thursday 28 May, Jetstar will donate all profits from onboard tea, coffee and beverage sales to the Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.

Jetstar Executive Manager Commercial, David Koczkar said Jetstar’s Australia’s Highest Morning Tea was a unique way for Jetstar to support a worthy Australian cause.

“Donating on-board sales from Jetstar’s Highest Morning Tea is a great way for Jetstar to get involved and support the cause in our own distinctive way, so we’re urging all our passengers to have a cuppa in-flight and donate,” Mr Koczkar said.

“Last year, the Cancer Council raised more than ten million dollars, and we’re hoping that by hosting Australia’s Highest Morning Tea on board, Jetstar can help increase that amount this year.”

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is one of the Cancer Council’s leading fundraising events and the largest, most successful event of its kind in Australia.

Sascha Arnold from the Western Australia Cancer Council said they were delighted to have Australia’s low fares airline Jetstar support the cause.

“Having Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea on board Jetstar flights is a fantastic idea. It gives people in the air the opportunity to take a tea break and help in the fight against cancer as well as helping to raise vital money for the Cancer Council,” said Ms Stringer.

The Cancer Council uses funds raised from the Biggest Morning Tea for cancer research, education and prevention programs, advocacy and support services.

More than $60 million has been raised for the Cancer Council since Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea first began in 1994.
