British Airways unveils uniform featuring hijab options

British Airways has unveiled its first uniform change in two decades for its crew members featuring a tunic and hijab options for Muslim women.

“Our uniform is an iconic representation of our brand, something that will carry us into our future, representing the very best of modern Britain and helping us deliver a great British original service for our customers,” said chief executive officer of British Airways, Sean Doyle.

The new uniform, created by Savile Row fashion designer and tailor Ozwald Boateng OBE, replaces the current one designed by Julien MacDonald.

“One of my main objectives was to create something that spoke to, and for, the airline’s colleagues. Something that inspired and empowered them, encouraged them to conduct their roles with pride and most importantly to ensure that they felt seen and heard.” Said Boateng.

Islam sees hijab as an obligatory code of dress, not a religious symbol displaying one’s affiliations.
