The concept of Hangar2Hangar was developed by Heidi Theunens, an Alliance Airlines Flight Attendant based in Adelaide, South Australia. With little more than passion for her work and a great idea, Heidi flew to Cairns and drove over 400kms to Townsville North Queensland to test the potential route.
After meeting with local police, community event organisers and council officials, Heidi approached Alliance management to further assist with the event concept. Originally a team building exercise, Hangar2Hangar presented a great opportunity to raise awareness and much-needed funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) as part of Alliance’s Workplace Giving Program.
From August 30 – September 2 Alliance Airlines will host a three-day cycling event for up to 20 cyclists including Alliance staff, customers, internal and external stakeholders over 400km between Alliance’s North Queensland hangars from Cairns Airport to Townsville Airport.
