United Airlines has offered a sneak peek of its upcoming uniform after the initial release was postponed for three years. The novel uniforms, designed by Tracy Reese in collaboration with Brooks Brothers and Carhartt in 2019, had to be put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a United Airlines spokesperson, the extended timeframe allowed them to enhance the existing pieces and adapt them to the evolving requirements of the airline.
The uniform designs are notably influenced by Star Trek, featuring two predominant shades of blue. In line with the trend among other airlines, United Airlines will also incorporate name tags indicating the employee’s preferred gender pronouns.
The airline representative stated: “This program tells the story of our airline — a story of our everyday trailblazers who connect people and unite the world. It has been years in the making, and we’re excited to be on a journey that serves the needs of our current and future employees”
In the months to come, the new designs will undergo a series of wear tests before being launched in 2025.
