Ukrainian airline allows female cabin crew to wear trousers and trainers
A Ukrainian budget airline is allowing female cabin crew to swap their skirts and heels for comfy trouser suits and smart white trainers.
SkyUp, one of the country’s biggest low-cost airlines, announced that the new-look comfort option would be offered to female inflight staff from next month.
“Many of my colleagues are permanent clients of podiatrists; their toes and toe nails are constantly damaged by high heels,” SkyUp staff member Daria Solomennaya told the BBC.
“Twelve hours on your feet, flying from Kyiv to Zanzibar and back. If you wear high heels, you are hardly able to walk afterwards,” she added.
SkyUp is not the only airline to offer a more modern, comfy uniform for the female crew – in April 2020, Japan Airlines introduced a trousers option for women working onboard, as well as a range of footwear options including flat shoes.
