The new uniform features 25 redesigned garments including new trousers option for female crew.

Aer Lingus has revealed its new look uniform which will be worn by over 4,000 cabin and ground crew around the world.

The uniform, which will be worn by staff from 10 February on, was created by Irish fashion designer Louise Kennedy.

Notable changes to the uniform include the addition of trouser and dress options, new jacket and coat designs for male crew, and easy-care shirts and blouses for the entire crew.

Aer Lingus has said that for added comfort, garment materials have a level of stretch and are designed to fit and flatter all body shapes and sizes.

Following on from a logo change last year, the uniform was last updated 22 years ago in 1998, and it was also designed by Louise Kennedy.

Speaking about her new design, Kennedy said: “We were honoured to be chosen to design the new Aer Lingus uniform. The brief from the airline was very clear and we were confident we could deliver a modern and stylish capsule collection which would endure for several years.

“The results reflect extensive engagement and inputs from the ground and cabin crew members. Importantly, over the past two years, we had constant support from Aer Lingus to remain true to our designs that allowed for more uniform options and the use of innovative fabrics.”
