Aer Lingus Cabin Crew members at the unveiling of Aer Lingus’ new look uniform designed by Louise Kennedy (above left). The new design will be worn by over 4,000 cabin and ground crew around the world from February 10.
Notable changes to the uniform include the addition of trouser and dress options for female crew, new jacket and coat designs for male crew, and ‘easy-care’ shirts and blouses.
The company confirmed to The Times that up until now all its female staff had to wear make-up as part of their uniform. Aer Lingus said that new guidelines would not include mandatory use for the first time. Women working on board the Irish airline’s fleet will soon be allowed to wear trousers, instead of the previously obligatory skirts.
As a nation of keen travellers there is nothing more disappointing than having your holiday plans cancelled at the eleventh hour.
Over the last few days Aer Lingus has seen record demand for its holiday rescue fares and has today announced an extension of its ‘Happy Winter’ sale with seats to Europe up for grabs this October from as a little as €29.99.
From 01 October – 28 February 2018, Aer Lingus, Ireland’s most punctual airline in and out of Dublin, will operate 100% of its flights to top European destinations.
