MIAMI — Turkish Airlines has unveiled its all-new Flight Attendant uniforms today, which will be introduced once the new Istanbul Airport opens in late October 2018.
The airline, which is celebrating its 85th anniversary this year, has partnered up with Italian designer, Ettore Bilotta, known for designing the Alitalia uniforms that were launched once the Italian carrier announced its relationship with Etihad Airways.
Turkish Airlines notes that the new uniforms “incorporate traditional patterns found in artisanal glassware, ceramics, and calligraphy with contemporary textures and details.”

The airline also notes that the uniforms of all cabin crew, flight deck, as well as those of flying chefs and ground personnel “will be streamlined under a single design approach to offer the passengers to live holistic brand experience.”
“Our new uniforms are professional and stay true to a culture of hospitality, just like our airline,” Aycı notes.
The new uniforms have been rigorously tested on long-haul flights in different climates and temperatures, the airline explains.
Our partner website, TheDesignAir, states that the new collection “encapsulates the look of a modern, international carrier.”
“The silhouettes might appear familiar, and there’s a good reason, it was the same designer that brought the stylish Alitalia uniform that was quickly replaced earlier this year,” says Jonny Clark, from TDA.
“Featuring the Turkish Airlines’ signature red and complimented with a deep charcoal grey, the uniforms resemble the brand image of the carrier, and most likely gives us an insight into the colors of the new 787 and A350 cabins that will a out next year.”
Overall, it is a tremendous upgrade from the current uniforms that the airline’s cabin crews sport.
Next week, Airways will cover live from Istanbul the Turkish Airlines Corporate Club, featuring an interview with the airline’s CEO, as well as the New Istanbul Airport’s Chief.
