Muscat: Oman Air, the Sultanate’s national carrier, has unveiled its collection of new uniforms for its cabin crew.

The new uniforms according to Oman Air, are modern, stylish and elegant.

The launch was held at Muscat International Airport with the crew for the flight to London Heathrow. The new uniform will be introduced across the network in phases.

Inspiring landscapes

Abdulaziz Al Raisi, Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, 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.”

Talking to Times of Oman at the launch, Xia Cai, Senior Vice President, Guest Experience & Branding at Oman Air said that they are excited about the new look and will be launching it in different phases soon.

“Today you would have probably noticed that we are launching our new uniform on London flight so it is exciting for us. Our cabin crew is stepping out in a new look and feel.

“You will see a lot of stylistic changes in terms of the cut, colours while maintaining the brand. Oman as a destination, country, culture, beauty of the landscape and people has all come into play to actually inspire the design of the uniform,” Cai said.

She added that the future plan is to launch the cabin crew uniform worldwide in a couple of months time.

While the airline has retained the turquoise colour, inspired by the Sea of Oman, the brand new uniforms represent an evolution in style to a more sophisticated look, developed by Oman Air’s in-house product development and brand team.

“The new style elevates the Oman Air brand to new heights. At the same time, the design of the outfit and accessories are inspired by the Sultanate of Oman’s rich colours, culture, history and heritage. For the cabin crew, this turquoise tone evokes self-confidence and for the guests, symbolizes warmth and friendliness,” officials at Oman Air said.

Comfortable and elegant

Oman Air stewardesses will wear a one-piece dress that falls neatly below the knees. The cut and shades have been developed to ensure that it is both comfortable and elegant for various nationalities and profiles. It will be accompanied by a sophisticated and unique main jacket in the same colour, including a newly designed hatlet and veil.

The guests will be able to distinguish its Cabin Directors onboard through a darker teal shade for stewardesses in the same cut contrasted with a golden hatlet

and veil.

Moreover, stewards will showcase modern suit cut in the dark teal with a turquoise tie. Male Cabin Directors will be easily distinguished with a grey vest and gold tie.
