“ZIPAIR” unveiled its aircraft and uniform design!
ZIPAIR Tokyo Inc. unveiled the design of its aircraft and uniforms worn by flight crews, flight attendants and ground staff in preparation for the launch of international mid and long-distance LCC operations in 2020.
- About the Aircraft’s design
The vertical tail will feature the corporate symbol on a gray background. Also, a thin green line stretches on the side of the fuselage, where one can imagine the aircraft flying straight toward the destination like an arrow.
- About the Uniform’s design
The uniforms worn by flight crews, cabin attendants and ground staff were designed by fashion designer Taro Horiuchi, who works for the popular fashion brands “TARO HORIUCHI” and “th” and attracts global attention. Based on the concept of "coordination and unity", staff can dress according to the work content, weather, mood and physical condition of the day, where it is possible to combine a large number of items. In addition, sneakers were adopted for the shoes, where ease of movement and reduction of fatigue were prioritized. By allowing one to freely coordinate their uniform as with everyday clothing, the company believes that the staff will be able to work with more intensity. By introducing new uniforms that pursue beauty, we aim to maximize the performance of our employees and lead to improved service to our customers
