Ryanair unveiled a new range of flight-attendant uniforms that it says will bring a subtler look to its aircraft cabins.
The uniforms are in a toned-down “royal blue” a shade or two less garish than the “Chelsea blue” previously sported by crew,
Ryanair’s trademark yellow, introduced by chief executive officer Michael O’Leary a decade ago, survives the makeover in the form of a women’s rain jacket, worn mainly outside the plane, a striped tie and neck-scarf, and detailing on the jacket pocket and skirt dart of the female uniform.
The attire will be introduced in December, complementing Boeing’s new “Sky” cabins, which will also feature markedly less yellow.
Aircraft bulkheads once entirely yellow with a Ryanair logo are also being restyled with images of holidaying families or destinations.
The uniforms were created by Emma Collopy, who graduated from Griffith College, Dublin, in 2014, according to her website.
