New JAL uniforms

Japan Air Lines (JAL) has unveiled a brand new set of uniforms for its staff members, including flight crew, cabin attendants, various ground personnel at the airports and city offices, as well as the maintenance section.  Some 26,700 people are involved.

Consolidating the designs across various sections within the JAL Group and conducting a thorough review of the selection and management of the materials used, has helped realize significant cost savings.

For cabin crew and passenger service staff who are always interacting with customers at the frontlines, JAL engaged the help of Japanese fashion designer Keita Maruyama.  The overalls for maintenance, as well as ground and cargo handling staff, have a generally light grey base where only the sleeves will be highlighted with a distinct colour to set them apart.  In contrast, ground and cargo handling staff will wear special working clothes with bright-red sleeves and a thick stripe of light-grey in the same area.  Both will have the JAL logo printed on the back. www.jal.com
