#5 Must Have Things for a Perfect Airline Uniform Project

There are five critical things for a well succeeded uniforms project for an airline company.

#1 Achieve a high-level, fully Functional Design for those who will use it every day. Respecting the airlines’ ethos, company culture and fitting a wide range of morphologies.

#2 Craft absolutely flawless Technical Sheets. Be demanding with all details for each item; you must check that all raw materials, compositions and trims are fully registered. Make sure all items are physically, chemically and usability tested, not risking the crews’ Health and Safety.

#3 Must have a project management map of uniforms, which accounts for the entire chronology of corrections and approvals, purchaser and supplier. Have total clarity about production and delivery times, always keeping in mind that you shouldn’t rush Perfection.

#4 Your Uniform supplier needs to understand exactly the fabrics and the patterns tailored to each role, clearly justifying the fabrics’ functionality, ensuring maximum Comfort, Durability and Quality.

#5 Involve employees in the fitting and usability tests of the parts; after all they are the ones who will use and Deliver Happiness.

An efficiently-lead process translates to a unparalelled benefit to your project, to your crew, to your stock management and to the airlines’ Performance. As a IATA Strategic Partner, SKYPRO is demanding to create the Airlines’ Uniforms of the Future standards.

Crews high impact comfort, the true.

There is a set of equivocate concepts and ideas when the people think about comfort. Today I’m going to share what makes a shoe really comfortable, especially when we talk about heavy-duty shoes .

The footwear industry is increasingly predatory margins, inventing new materials that replace the shoe’s leather for low cost products. Today the biggest footwear brands replace the leather linings of the shoes by very dubious materials; however, the design maintains a very interesting appearance.

The high impact comfort is not the one that we get when we go to a store and feel that immediately comfort wearing the shoes. The challenge is to have an intensive use shoes that maintains the properties over time.

Here we have a different approach and the challenges are very interesting. The vast majority of foams lose full damping after three months. Almost all fabrics that wrap shoes absorb water (we sweat 1/4 litre per day in the feet), which is conducive to the appearance of fungi and bacteria in large numbers and as a consequence bad odours. Besides that, those materials, which are apparently comfortable, will probably create a real discomfort due the fact that these kinds of material increase the temperature of the feet.

Another critical factor is regarding the shape of the shoes. A wide foot will never fit comfortable in regular fitting shoes, mainly because the feet have several dimensions and we need other information beyond the length when we talk about daily wearing shoes. A minimum of two widths is obliged in uniform shoes.

The challenge is huge when we have to wear airlines around the world, with crews from different latitudes. It’s necessary a deep study of the plantar and shoe last design, and the right raw materials. At SKYPRO we can offer the best world class shoes for airline professionals, frequent flyers or who need really demanded shoes. A blend of know-how and innovative raw materials allows us to reduce the users fatigue, increase long term protection and improve your daily performance.

WTCE 2018

A brief review about SKYPRO presence at WTCE 2018

We have grown fond of WTCE in Hamburg, and we have been attending for 10 uninterrupted years. It was hard to follow-up on last year’s presentation of our new project, Uniforms of the Future – but I am positive we accomplished this mission. SKYPRO does not just tend to airlines’ crews; we also aim to democratise the industry towards making sure all players understand the care, technology and safety measures that ought to be implemented when preparing a Uniform Project – often these details are overlooked as airlines sometimes aim for fashionable items instead of fashionable and functional, as we do it.

This year was also a success: we are expected to onboard several new customers and I am very happy that airlines seek us not just for the Project itself, but also for advice regarding tenders, regarding procedures and regarding crews’ benefits. In a time where demand for airline professionals has skyrocketed and qualified staff available in the market is scarce, it is very important for crews to feel that airlines are tending to their safety, their health, their needs and rightly equipping them towards their daily challenges.

Another year, milestones achieved and new challenges to overcome – changing the airline industry one Uniform at a time.

Mistakes that Kill Your Uniform Project

Even the biggest and best airlines in the world have suffered the consequences of overlooking the (not so) “little” details; hazardous substances in uniforms.


So, why does this occur in uniforms more than in our usual clothing? Essentially, we must start by considering that uniforms are likened to a second skin; a protective layer that must be worn everyday. Imagine then, that the chemical composition of this second skin is above the equilibrial values.. it can easily become damaging to your health.

Selecting appropriate day-to-day clothes is a very demanding task, especially when choosing a limited number of fabrics which have to be broadly appropriate for the requirements of thousands of individual workers. The challenge is huge, the responsibility is even higher. Airline uniforms must take into consideration a number of variables, including diverse skin sensibilities, temperatures, feelings and reactions.


The vast majority of the airlines do not have a textile expert onboard, as this is simply not their primary business domain. At the very least it is important to understand what are the crucial details not to overlook. Consider aspects such as; understanding where the fbres have been produced and how they have been tested. How these fabrics are quality controlled during each stage of logistics. And perhaps most importantly, making sure that the fabrics are produced and regulated within a high level control programme, that includes monitored chemical testing throughout the production stages of the project lifecycle.

It is essential is to ensure that uniforms meet the standard requirements which safeguard against hazardous substances, and retain the Heath & Safety regulations of the airline company. At SKYPRO we make innovative products to care and protect crews around the world. Only the highest quality and safest materials are used. Our uniforms are tested and assessed in accordance with the minimum specifc technical requirements, as per the table below:


Skin contact products should at least comply with Type II and non-skin contact products should at least comply with Type III.


SKYPRO exists to care for crews. We create products that protect and deliver a functional product to be worn everyday, and prepared specifcally for the environmental needs for airline crews. Get support from our Product and innovation team, we’re waiting to help you.
