Future of aviation? AirAsia 'astronaut' uniform protects crew from coronavirus
Ready to resume its activities, the low-cost AirAsia presented its new models of uniforms for the crew of its aircraft. With hoods, long sleeves and a visor, the new garment was developed to protect employees from contagion by coronavirus.
Created in partnership with the stylist Puey Quinones, the new line of uniforms was used by the company on a repatriation flight that departed from Bangkok, Thailand, to Manila, Philippines, on April 24th. The idea is to use the clothes, which drew attention for their futuristic aspect, in all company flights.
THE AirAsia also began to require passengers to wear a protective mask to board. In addition, other security measures have also been taken, such as seat distancing, temperature checks before boarding and virtual check-ins.
