There's no doubt about it, flight crews are the heroes of the sky. That's why Travelpro® – the luggage brand of choice for over 90 airlines globally announced its #SmilesInTheSky campaign, which aims to recognize and reward these unsung heroes this holiday season. As general negativity and even violence against flight crews and airline employees has increased, Travelpro® is looking to shift the sentiment and conversation to create a more respectful travel environment, and recognize crew for everything they do to get us safely to our destination.
Starting today through January 14, 2022, Travelpro® is encouraging travelers to share the random acts of kindness they experience from flight crews and airline employees during their holiday travel with the brand on Instagram or Twitter – from the selfless to the heart-warming. In doing so, 50 of these flight crew and airline employees will be recognized with a new Travelpro® FlightCrew™ 5 suitcase for professional use and a $200 gift card to use for a night out with family, or just some much needed rest and relaxation.
"Flight crews and airline employees have a difficult job right now and deserve a world of credit for all they do, especially as we head into the busy holiday season, As a brand with deep roots in the airline and larger travel industry, we know that travel wouldn't be the same without these dedicated crew members. It's essential that we recognize and reward them for going above and beyond on the job, all while navigating the challenging landscape that is post-pandemic air travel."
- Ofelia Silva, Chief Growth Officer of Travelpro®.
