AirAsia has introduced new personal protective equipment (PPE) COVID-19 uniforms for its cabin crews to be used as flights resume on April 29th. The airline enlisted the help of Los Angeles-based Filipino fashion designer Puey Quinones. AirAsia maintained their signature red for the PPE crew uniforms that have apparently been approved by the Philippines’ Department of Health. Flight attendants will be required to wear the PPE uniforms on all domestic and international flights.
An AirAsia spokeswoman shared:
It is a responsibility of each one of us to flatten the curve. We chose to have PPE material that is approved by the (Philippines) Department of Health to protect our Allstars. At the same time, the PPE is designed to announce that we are proudly AirAsia, and we will rise from this pandemic. We want to boost the morale of our staff when they wear this new uniform. We wanted the design to be chic and sporty. The PPE is comfortable because it is not so thick and heavy yet it serves its purpose. We like that it’s chic and sporty-similar to what Formula One race car drivers wear. This fusion of fashion and safety will define the new standards of flying today.
Flights will resume in Malaysia, followed by Thailand on May 1, India on May 4, Indonesia on May 7 and the Philippines on May 16, subject to approval from the authorities.
