Celebrating 85 years of service, Turkish Airlines unveiled new cabin crew uniforms earlier this month.
Visible for long haul flights of the national flag carrier, they are inspired by many classical details in Turkish culture. From the currents of the Bosphorus to the artisanal glassware, ceramics and calligraphy patterns 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.
The new uniforms come in flag-red and anthracite gray colours, and have been rigorously tested on long-range flights in different climates. Over 25,000 employees have received the tailored outfits in order to serve passengers comfortably.
The uniforms were designed by Italian haute couturier Ettore Bilotta, and were specially sewn by Vakko with fabrics produced by Altmyıldız in compliance with Turkish Airlines flight standards.
In his statement regarding the new uniforms, 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 unrivaled 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.”
