Turkish Airlines launches new cabin uniforms

Posted 7 August 2019 · Add Comment

Turkish Airlines cabin crew will now greet passengers with “welcome onboard” dressed in new uniforms on long haul flights of the national flag carrier.

 

The new cabin crew uniforms were designed with the aim of celebrating the airline’s 85th anniversary and will be visible on the entire cabin crew on the long haul flights of the flag carrier as of today.

The new uniforms in flag-red and anthracite grey colours, which were tested on long-range flights in different climates, have been tailored to 25,000 employees in order for cabin crews to serve passengers comfortably.

Inspired by many classical details in Turkish culture, from the currents of the Bosphorus to the artisanal glassware, ceramics and calligraphy patterns produced by local artisans, the cabin, cockpit, ground handling personnel and flying chef uniforms came to life under a single design in order to give their passengers a holistic brand experience.

M. İlker Aycı, chairman of the board and the executive committee of Turkish Airlines said: “The elegance and comfort of our cabin crews, which constitute the most important element of our unrivalled service quality, are of great importance for our brand that continues to fly at the top of its industry. I believe that our brand's presence in the skies will be much more impressive when the new cabin uniforms, which bear elements of our culture, are combined with the elegance of our cabin crews.”

 

Italian haute couturier Ettore Bilotta designed the new cabin uniforms, which were specially sewn by Vakko, and the main fabrics were produced by Altınyıldız, based on the compliance of Turkish Airlines with flight standards.
