Air Canada lands uniform design award
Air Canada's new uniforms, which launched earlier this year, have been awarded Best Corporate Design by the Professional Clothing Awards, marking the first time a North American company has won one of the UK-based awards and the third award that the airline's latest series of uniforms has won since its debut. (In March, Air Canada received two Image of the Year Awards from the North American Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors.)
Andrew Yiu, Vice President, Product at Air Canada, noted in a statement from the airline: "This is a very welcome accolade for Air Canada's new uniform collection, now proudly being worn by our employees. We are delighted their design, which projects Air Canada's and Canadian values, is clearly making a fashion statement around the world.
"Winning a European award is gratifying as it further advances our ambition to be a Top 10 global carrier in everything we do. I thank Canadian designer Christopher Bates and Unisync for designing the new uniforms, as well as Air Canada's employees who are excellent brand ambassadors."
