United Airlines debuts newly designed uniforms

Jun '13
Tens of thousands of United Airlines employees worldwide – including flight attendants, customer service agents, technical operations and ramp workers – begin wearing newly designed uniforms, the first time members of these work groups will wear similarly styled uniforms.

More than 64,000 United employees will debut the garments, which feature accents of blue, gold, silver and gray.

"The new uniforms project a contemporary, sophisticated look that reflects the modern airline we're building," said Jeff Foland, United's executive vice president – marketing, technology and strategy. "With significant feedback from our uniformed co-workers, we've designed pieces that are professional, stylish and functional."

United pilots will begin wearing newly designed uniforms later this year in the traditional midnight blue color with gold stripes and accents. Other uniform design concepts include:

Flight Attendants: The uniform includes a core wardrobe of black trousers, skirts, sweaters, vests and blazers with two rows of silver braid on the sleeves. Female flight attendants will also wear sweaters, vests, short sleeve jackets and two styles of dresses, including a signature blue dress with a black stripe detail. Outerwear for male and female flight attendants includes a black all-season coat and an optional gray double-breasted wool coat.

Customer Service Agents: The uniform includes a wardrobe of black blazers, trousers, sweaters, vests and skirts. Agents will also wear colored shirts and distinctive neckwear that vary depending on their job responsibilities.

Ramp, Cargo and Technical Operations: The uniform offers flexibility, comfort and durability for year round comfort. Employees will wear work shirts, polo shirts and T-shirts made with breathable and flexible fabric. The pants, shorts and coveralls for both men and women feature a soft, brushed fabric. Outerwear for ramp, cargo and technical operations workers includes a three-piece system consisting of a zip-up fleece-lined vest, jacket and waterproof outer shell. The uniform also includes waterproof wind pants, hooded sweatshirts, baseball caps and knit caps.
