Oman Air recently launched a new uniform for its cabin crew just last week and the new one basically represents the rich colours, culture, heritage, and history of Oman. It also retains its turquoise hues which basically represents the Sea of Oman. This was unveiled at London just last week and it is currently being used for London flights as of the moment.
Female uniforms include a turquoise one-piece dress with a flowing cut that falls below the knees, developed “to ensure that it is both comfortable and elegant for various nationalities and profiles”. This is accompanied by a jacket in the same colour, tailored to “convey flair and elegance”, and a newly designed hat. Stewards will wear a modern dark teal suit with a turquoise tie.
It is slightly different for cabin directors with the addition of gold accents alongside the turquoise palette.
Female uniforms include the same dress, but in a darker teal shade, with a golden hat and veil. The latter will be removed after boarding, and stewardesses will change into a dinner jacket during meal service. This will be accompanied by a floral scarf, designed to embody Oman’s seasonal colours – the turquoise, gold, and magenta colours are inspired by the country’s sea, sunset and rose-covered mountains.
Male cabin directors will be dressed in a grey vest and gold tie.
Abdulaziz Al Raisi, CEO of Oman Air, said “Inspired by the rich elements of Oman, our new uniform is a testimony that style can be derived from our own inspiring landscapes and surroundings. It was a richly rewarding experience working on this project and we are very proud and excited to now introduce the brand new uniforms on our Oman Air flights. The tremendous amount of effort and time dedicated by our team working through multiple design iterations, and modifications before the precise styling and overall look was achieved in each garment, is indeed praiseworthy”.
The uniform will be launched progressively over Oman Air's official social media accounts. They will showcase how this was designed in a series called "State of Grace".
So what do you think of Oman Air's new uniform?
