A new look for aviation – Airpro introduces new uniforms for personnel


Airpro employees have received new uniforms for both indoor and outdoor use. The new work clothing design continues Airpro's brand update and supports Airpro's ongoing renewal of its customer service operations.

The indoor uniforms for security officers and check-in, gate and customer service personnel, are produced by Touchpoint. The uniforms for ramp personnel, bus drivers and cleaners are produced by Leijona Group Oy.

One of the best features of the new uniforms is their adaptability: the uniforms include more functionality and possible combinations than before. The key words for the upgrade are developing materials and user comfort.

The project has taken the ethical and ecological aspects of the clothes into account: check-in personnel will receive an equipment bag made of recycled plastic bottles and safety belts, and the old uniforms will be recycled as filler for the furniture industry and for industrial utilization. The uniforms and partners were selected with the influence of a personnel workgroup. The workgroup had valuable insight about the organisation regarding the clothes used in different tasks.

"Work clothing conveys an important message of our brand and services, and it adds functionality and comfort for our 1,400 employees. Mutual understanding with our new partners of the direction to take, a high level of quality and life cycle thinking are important components in this project. We also wanted to emphasise sustainable development, together with a fresh design that reflects the characteristics of Airpro," says Janne Hattula, Managing Director of Airpro.

Airpro has recently updated its service concept, which its 1,400 skilled employees use to meet passengers in air traffic services. The new uniform range supports the implementation of the new service concept and will be a visible culmination of Airpro's brand and updated service.  The introduction of the new uniforms is directly linked to well-being at work. Well-being at work is the top priority project for Airpro in 2017.
