Philippine Airlines' cabin crew wears protective suits as 'new normal' uniform

To ensure the safety of everyone on board against COVID-19, Philippine Airlines on Friday unveiled specially designed personal protective gear for cabin crew as part of a "new normal" to prevent the spread of COVID-19 that grounded global aviation.

PAL cabin crew were tasked to wear protective gear such as PPE suits, face shields, gloves, masks, and hair nets. Their all-white suits, which bear the colors of the Philippine flag on the left shoulder, were designed and manufactured by local designer Edwin Tan.

The protective suits have the "fit and function" that will allow cabin crew to perform their duties. The garments also bear the colors of the airline, which take off from the Philippine flag, PAL spokesperson Cielo Villaluna said.

Tan fused protection, comfort and branding in the final design, Villaluna added. The "new normal" cabin crew uniform will have various looks, designs and colors.

Local airlines have suspended operations due to virus lockdowns locally and abroad. PAL has been mounting cargo and special flights to help stranded foreigners and to deliver essential supplies.
