Airlines play a vital role in the world of pageantry. They are one of the most reliable sponsors of Big4 pageants offering both cash and services. They ferry candidates to the host cities and in most cases they did so for free. They also offer free tickets as part of the prize for the Big4 winner. Without the support of airlines, Big4 pageants would probably cease to exist. It is therefore morally right for pageantry enthusiasts to support airlines that support Big4 pageants. Here, Missosology featured the airlines responsible for transporting the Big4 Queens from their home countries to the pageant venue.
