National carrier Vietnam Airlines has introduced a new uniform for its pilots and cabin crew after 15 years of using the red ao dai (traditional Vietnamese long dress).

The new uniform will be worn by staff on several flights from March 3 to 9 to gather feedback from passengers and the public.

The hostesses serving the business class will wear a yellow dress, while those serving the economy class will wear blue. The uniforms for pilots and male flight attendants will also see a change in material and cloth that has a 3D pattern.

The dress was designed by a team of designers, headed by well-known Vietnamese designer Minh Hanh, who specialises in ao dai.-VNA
