Bangkok Airways debuts new uniforms, sets up donations for floods in the South
The 42 year old Amari will be closed April
Bangkok Airways launcheD new and stylish uniforms at Bangkok
International Fashion Week 2011(BIFW2011), Siam Paragon.
M.L.Nandhika Varavarn, Vice President, Corporate Communications of
Bangkok Airways said "We are delighted to support Thai designers and
also Bangkok International Fashion Week this year. After having seen
many successes of Thai designers, we decided to engage Mr. Polpat
Asavaprapha, owner of ASAVA and ASV brand, to create a new look since
the current uniform has been in use for almost 20 years. The new
collection will be officially launched at BIFW2011."
"This is very exciting and interesting. The concept of new uniform will
emphasize our position as "Boutique Airline" and "Shades of Blue" shows
our color identity. The new uniforms, especially designed for 1,200
front line staff in reservation, ground services and in-flight services
are not only modern in style but also comfortable to wear” added M.L.
Mr. Polpat Asavaprapha explained that "Before designing the uniforms, I
needed to find what are the identities of Bangkok Airways. Blue stripes
painted on the aircraft is one of the carrier’s identities. I then
created stripe pattern with shades of blue and turquoise. Silk-Poly
fabric has been chosen to give a feeling of lightness and comfort to the
person wearing it. Uniform for men, in grey and blue with painted cobalt
stripes on the shirt emphasizes luxury, smart and informal look. This is
to express the identity as a leisure airline."
"To design clothes, apart from consideration of era and time, we also
think about staffs who wear the uniform and their work. For
flight-attendants who have to be quick and smart, we decided to use
culottes, which will look modern and flexible" Mr. Polpat added.
Additionally, Bangkok Airways in co-operation with the Bangkok Hospital
Group has set up a “Donation Centre for the Flood Situation in the
South” at Bangkok Airways’ head office on Vibhavadeerangsit road. Cash
donations can be deposited via the bank account, “Bangkok Airways
Donation for Flood Relief in the South” at Kasikorn Bank's Chatuchak
branch, and the bank account number is 061-1-07224-4.
For more information about donations, you can call 02-265-5868 while
