DHAKA: Dubai-based airline flydubai has announced on July 11, the roll out of a new uniform as it enters its ninth year of operation. The new design will be worn by more than 2,500 uniformed staff across the flydubai network; including Pilots, Cabin Crew, Training, Engineering and Maintenance staff as well as members of staff at the airport and flydubai Travel Shops, says a press release.
This is the carrier’s first uniform redesign since its first flight took to the sky on June 1, 2009. The roll out of this new look is scheduled to coincide with the introduction of the airline’s first Boeing 737 MAX 8, which will join the flydubai fleet later this year.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer of flydubai, Commenting on the launch of the new uniform, said: “flydubai has evolved continuously since its inception; we’ve continued to push boundaries and change the way people travel around the region.”
“Our desire to meet the varying travel needs of our passengers with affordable, reliable travel services still lies at the heart of our proposition; however, we have come a long way from being a start-up airline and this maturity needs to be reflected through multiple touchpoints across the airline, undoubtedly the uniform is the most visible of all,” added Al Ghaith.
flydubai has teamed up with A. Ronai LLC., a Dubai based hospitality supplier, to create the new look for the carrier: one that exudes the spirit of the brand but also meets the operational and practical demands of the roles our uniformed staff perform every day.
The carrier operates a fleet of 58 Next-Generation Boeing 737- 800 and created a network of 94 destinations in 44 countries, spanning from Prague to Bangkok.
