New Aegean Airlines Uniforms: Bold & Blue

New Aegean Airlines Uniforms: Bold & Blue

41

Greek Star Alliance carrier Aegean Airlines has just unveiled its new employee uniforms, and they’re sure to turn some heads…

Aegean’s fashionable new uniforms

Aegean Airlines is currently in the process of refreshing its fleet, taking delivery of new fuel efficient Airbus A320neo-family aircraft. The airline has all new cabins, a new livery, and now also has new employee uniforms. Employees across the company are wearing these as of today, Monday, October 23, 2023.

Aegean’s new uniforms were designed in partnership with Greek brand Zeus+Dione, and the uniforms take inspiration from the color palette of the Greek skies and seas — in other words, they’re really blue. Aegean describes these new uniforms as combining the company’s Greek heritage with its neo-era philosophy.

With this uniform refresh, female cabin crew have a diverse range of options as to what they’d like to wear, from trousers, to dresses, to skirts. Classic tailored silhouettes are accented with attached neck scarves, geometric asymmetries, and contrasting linear accents. Meanwhile for male cabin crew, band collars replace traditional lapels.

The airline has also made changes to its make-up line for employees, in collaboration with KORRES. The new make-up is described as highlighting the natural beauty of employees, and of being influenced by Greek nature. The make-up mostly uses earth tones of brown, bronze, and pink.

Below is a video that Aegean has published about the new uniforms.

I love Aegean’s new uniforms!

My first impression is that I really like Aegean’s new uniforms — they’re fun, modern, unique, and… blue.

As I always say about employee uniform, though, what matters most is how employees feel about their uniforms:

  • The single greatest thing that can come from new uniforms is that employees feel a sense of pride wearing them, and like how they look in them
  • It’s not just about how the uniforms look, but also about how they feel — are they comfortable, are employees having skin or other reactions to them (as we’ve seen at some other airlines), etc.?

Now, the one thing I will say is that the airline didn’t exactly highlight a very diverse group of employees for its new uniform photoshoot. All the people pictured are young, attractive, slender, etc. Would someone with a different body type also feel good in these uniforms? Obviously I have no way to know, but that’s a major question here, and hopefully it’s something the airline has considered.

Aegean Airlines also has a new livery

Bottom line

Aegean Airlines has just rolled out its new employee uniforms, which all staff should be wearing effective immediately. This isn’t just some boring uniform refresh, but rather the airline decided to make a statement with introducing these new uniforms.

Personally I love the uniforms, thanks to how edgy and blue they are (which is fitting given the carrier’s branding otherwise). I just hope that employees like them, since that’s most important.

What do you make of Aegean’s new uniforms?

    They are the most horrible uniforms!!!! I hope they are Halloween costumes

  2. Christian Guest

    Starfleet would be proud.

    I like the new uniform and I think it will be bold. My only issue is where is the diversity of uniforms for men? Women can go between a dress, skirt etc why can men not wear nice shorts (or a skirt for that matter). Aegean flies to warm destinations and a man needs to wear trousers (pants). Would I wear a skirt probably not however if it was 40+ degrees (104 for Americans) and...

Would I wear a skirt probably not however if it was 40+ degrees (104 for Americans) and I had to choose a skirt or trousers I would probably go skirt (with a short-sleeved shirt).

    Also, I just flew with them today and the new uniforms are really nice. They look much more natural in person, but still quite fashionable.

    'All the people pictured are young, attractive, slender, etc. Would someone with a different body type also feel good in these uniforms?'

    I don't think there is much worry about someone with a different body type being in a position to wear the uniform. I mean, it wasn't until a few years ago that the airline even started hiring men as cabin crew.
    Not commenting on whether that is a good or bad thing,...

    Not commenting on whether that is a good or bad thing, but just the reality that looks definitely seem to be a part of the Aegean hiring process.

    Aegean's cabin crew are all straight out of some finishing or school. Most are sweet, some are total robots. All (men and women) are beautiful and largely under 30.

    Aegean don't run their own ground operations , as the old state owned Olympic did, so those staff employed by Goldair won't be wearing the uniforms.

    The uniforms are beautiful but I think they look too costume-like. They won't age that well. The Greek PM's wife owns the label. I love Greek corruption.

  7. Dvid Guest

    As Aegean doesn't accept FAs that are not skinny (and literally bullies them out), they made sure that there are no overweight FA that don't fit their uniform.

    Aegean has been criticized many times for their unhuman working conditions.

  8. vlcnc Guest

    I'm a fan. so fresh and distinct :)

  9. Ivan Guest

    IDK, I've been on four Agean flights and the cabin crew have all been quite fit so I think the concerns about fitting 'regular' sized people is overblown.

    The new styles certainly are bold but I imagine the crew will great. They pulled off the sleeveless dresses quite well when I visited in June

  10. Andre Guest

    Once again, in the name of diversity, lets just stick the men’s blazer sleeve to a women's off-the-shoulder design and make it some failed attempt of a “ modern and inclusive” design. Rather than keeping it timeless, elegant and SIMPLE….they made it so futuristic it looks like a costume.

  11. Donna Diamond

    Uniforms should not look like costumes! I feel sorry for the cabin crew who are forced to wear this mess and I can’t believe they actually had any serious input into the decision to go with this.

  12. sullyofdoha Guest

    Star Trek rip off!!!
    That being said, the tricorder pouch matches the uniform nicely! LOL

  13. rrapynot Guest

    All the dudes who wear polyester Under Armour golf shirts and Kirkland sneakers while flying around on business trips are telling us that these uniforms are not stylish.

  14. tom Guest

    They would have been better served using real life crew members rather than food deprived models suffering from digestive disorders.

    1. Max Guest

      GoySlop-eating, unhealthily obese Yanks with a lower life expectancy trying to lecture Europeans with asuper healthy mediterainian food on nutritiion.

      HAHAHAHAHA

  15. uldguy Diamond

    Out of style, that is.

    1. jedipenguin Guest

      Business style suits should be the uniform for all carriers-preferably dark colors. These are costumes.

    2. Max Guest

      No thanks. Hasn't there been a Vietnamese airline with flight attendants in bikinis?

      On a second thought, it would be a bad idea on US airlines though...

  16. uldguy Diamond

    The problem with these uniforms is that they will not age well. They may be stylish and cutting edge now but in a few years they will look out of day and, frankly, ridiculous.

  17. Bill Guest

    They look like Aliens from another planet. Did Star Trek have a fire sale?

  18. Phil M Guest

    First one is *literally* a Vulcan, and I am here for it!

  19. rich Guest

    My first thought was Star Trek/sci fi.

  20. Coffee Out Guest

    They look good and fresh. And they look Star Trek-esque.

    Any haters should leave the chat because these are GORGEOUS. Aegean just gets branding right. From their cabins to their lounges to their website to their livery and now to their uniforms, everything is so clean, bold and authentically Greek. What a way to represent the country.

    1. T. Davis Guest

      Their lounges? Have you ever been to an Aegean lounge? They are tiny, completely packed all the time with limited food/beverage options. There is nearly always a very long line to even get into a lounge. I like Aegean's business class because it is definitely one of the best for intra-European travel, but the lounges are a disgrace.

    2. Bruce Guest

      Clearly you haven’t been to their new lounges in Athens and Thessaloniki that opened in the last year. Excellent design, and although the intra Schengen lounge gets crowded at peak times I was clearly referring primarily about the aesthetic and the branding.

    3. Alexf1 Member

      Suspect you haven't been to the new lounges in Athens (Terminals A & B) and Thessaloniki. They're stunning with superb hot and cold food and open bar. The Inter-Schengen lounge in Athens can get annoyingly very busy especially in summer (they have a spill over lounge next door) but the new Extra-Schengen lounge in Terminal A is one of the most impressive of any European airline.

  22. John Guest

    I think you mean “male” employees rather than “mail” employees.

    1. John Guest

      Sorry…I should have said cabin crew (which is what you wrote) rather than employees (which is what I remembered when I wrote the comment).

      Wasn’t meant as snarky, by the way. Just flagging the typo in case helpful.

  23. John Guest

    Horrid is all that comes to mind

  24. mdande7 Diamond

    How do you think these will look on normal shaped people. These are all model rail thin.

    1. Never In Doubt Guest

      Aren't dark colors supposed to be slimming?

    2. Max Guest

      No, these are just healthy, well nurished (Meditteranean diet) Europeans with a longer life expectancy than GoySlop-fed obese Yanks that take the car to get to the store 200m down the road instead of walking.

  25. Steve Guest

    What in the Star Trek am I looking at?

  26. AnishReddi Gold

    If they sold the belt in black I would definitely buy it, maybe even the blue one but that’s much harder to style.

  27. Leigh Guest

    Do the employees have to pay for their uniforms?

    If not, how many sets do they get? Asking as they’re short haul and probably often and with many segments (?)

  28. snic Diamond

    I always wondered what it would be like to fly on the Star Ship Enterprise.

    1. Leigh Guest

      Good one :) They do have that look…

    2. farnorthtrader Guest

      I wonder, does that tricorder that the first crew member is wearing really work?

    3. Luke Guest

      Star alliance enterprise? ;)

    4. DENDAVE Member

      If they tap the logo they're able to communicate with other crew members, even those on other aircraft.
