New Uniforms for Austrian Airlines Employees
Austrian Airlines will be introducing standard uniforms effective July 1, 2012 within the context of the transfer of operations to Tyrolean Airways. This step will not only facilitate the forging of a shared Tyrolean/Austrian identity for employees of the company to live by, but should make this bond clearly visible to the customers. The joint flight operations will thus be given a unified visual appearance – in the air as well as on the ground. The objective is to maintain features which bring the employees in the company together and forsake those which draw people apart.
Red and silver instead of blue and green ties and scarves as in the past
The changes do not mainly call for the staff to wear new clothing but involve new accessories such as ties, scarves, buttons and the stripes on pilot suits. Previously the ties and scarves were green at Tyrolean and blue at Austrian. In the future, the new ones will be red and silver. As of July the stripes on the suits worn by pilots will shine in the new standard color of silver. The typical red uniforms and red tights worn by women will remain. They are the visual business card of the company and guarantee that passengers will recognize employees of Austrian Airlines at a glance.
Austrian Airlines is Austria’s largest carrier and operates a global route network of round 130 destinations. That route network is particularly dense in Central and Eastern Europe: with 44 destinations, Austrian Airlines operates the densest route network into this region served by a single airport. Thanks to its favourable geographical location at the heart of Europe, the company’s hub at Vienna International Airport is the ideal gateway between East and West.
