Low-cost carrier Air Asia has launched a new uniform for its cabin crew with protective gear in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
Designed by Filipino fashion designer Puey Quinones, the new uniforms have long sleeves, a visor, a medical mask and a hood for flight attendants.
According to a report from Malaysia-based newspaper The Star, the new uniforms were launched on April 24 during an Air Asia recovery flight from Bangkok to Manila. They have also been approved by the Philippines’ Department of Health, added the report.
Business Traveller Asia-Pacific has asked the airline if the new uniforms will be worn across all Air Asia flights once the airline resumes its domestic schedule this month and in May.
The Malaysian carrier announced earlier this month that it will resume domestic flights in Malaysia today, in Thailand on May 1, in India on May 4, in Indonesia on May 7 and in the Philippines on May 16.
