Travellers flying United Airlines may be able to catch a glimpse of the new uniforms this week, as airline staff begin wearing the newly designed garments.
Flight attendants, customer service agents, technical operations and ramp workers will commence the rollout of new uniforms, which feature accents of blue, gold, silver and grey.
United executive vice president of marketing, technology and strategy Jeff Foland said garments were designed based on feedback received by staff and reflect the “modern airline we’re building”.
Flight attendants will be wearing a core wardrobe of black trousers, skirts, sweaters, vests and blazers with two rows of silver braid on the sleeves.
Customer service agents will be seen in the same code black blazers, trousers, sweaters, vests and skirts, while also wearing coloured shirts – colours vary depending on their job responsibilities.
Ramp, cargo and technical operations will be in flexible outfits of shirts, polo shirts and t-shirts made from breathable fabric. Pants and shorts will be accompanied with vest, jackets and waterproof outshell as well as waterproof wind pants, hooded sweatshirts, baseball caps and knit caps.
United pilots will begin wearing the uniform later this year.
