AirAsia flaunts "red hot" PPEs for cabin crew

Aviation Updates Philippines – A Puey Quiñones-designed personal protective equipment (PPE) suit was flaunted by Philippines AirAsia's cabin crew on a Bangkok-Manila repatriation flight on Friday — doubling as a fashion item and, more importantly, as a safety precaution.

Philippines AirAsia Vice-Chair Sheila Romero said: "It is the responsibility of each one to flatten the curve. I chose to have a PPE material that is approved by the Department of Health to protect our Allstars. At the same time, the PPE is designed to proudly announce that we are AirAsia and we will rise up from this pandemic. I want to boost the morale of our staff when they wear this new uniform."

This week, the low-cost airline flew repatriates from Bangkok and Denpasar to bring home stranded Filipino nationals abroad. To assure [the] utmost safety and security of its crew and passengers, AirAsia provided these PPEs for the repatriation flights.

“With a [safety-first] always policy, all crew members of AirAsia Philippines can now travel while being assured of their health and wellbeing. More special recovery flights are being arranged as coordinated by authorities," Philippines AirAsia Chief Executive Officer Ricky Isla remarked.

Besides AirAsia, Philippine Airlines also gave a sneak peek of its "new normal" cabin crew uniforms last week. Fusing the elements of comfort, protection, and the PAL brand, fashion designer Edwin Tan collaborated with the national flag carrier to supply PPEs with subtle branding.
