We have a proud tradition of working with some of the world's best designers to develop uniforms for our Qantas team. Since it first hit the runway in 1938, the Qantas uniform has been an evocative symbol of service excellence and the irrepressible Australian spirit of travel.
On April 16, Qantas unveiled our new uniform from acclaimed Australian designer Martin Grant, our tenth since 1938.
Our New Look
Inspired by the Qantas logo, Martin Grant has created a fresh and contemporary range for our customer facing employees, the attitude is slick but relaxed and comfortable.
The new collection features a French Navy, Qantas red, ruby red and fuchsia palette, with garments designed to be flattering on all body shapes. Martin's signature piece is the bold stripe dress which will ensure our employees will be visible regardless of whether they are on board or in the terminal.
The new collection sees the addition of a hat for our female cabin crew and the perfect Trench in French Navy. This will provide extra warmth in cooler climates and is a chic addition to the range.
Our new uniform is so much more than a new look, it marks a new chapter in our brand and will unite our people on the ground and our flying crew as "one team".
Live Wearer Trial
Select employees will be trialling the new uniform for a two week period. If you are flying with us between 18 April and 2 May, look out for select Qantas staff conducting functional testing of the uniform before it goes into production.
Qantas aims to have customer facing employees in the new design in 2014.
