The world’s largest airline (based on scheduled passenger-kilometers flown) has recently changed up their employee couture. May 21, 2013 marked United Airline’s 25th anniversary at Newark’s Liberty International Airport (EWR) and felt it would make a great backdrop to show off their new uniforms.
United is the largest airline in the New York area and currently the sole tenant of Newark’s terminal C and the airport serves as their third-largest U.S. Hub. They have more than 13,000 local employees and offer more flights & seats from the region to more world-wide gateways than any other airline in history. Currently, United offers more than 400 flights daily from Newark.
Those traveling on United that day (May 21st) , were in for quite a surprise. Not only was there a “Fashion Week” styled runway show unveiling the airline’s new uniforms, but the opportunity to win amazing prizes, travel discounts & MileagePlus miles.
Around two dozen employees consisting of United’s pilots, flight attendants, customer service agents and ramp workers participated in the fashion show. The new uniforms will take effect on June 25th.
This marks milestone, as employees at the new United have never worn the same uniforms.
United’s chairman, president and chief executive officer was in attendance to share his gratitude to the Port Authority for their continued support and partnership as well as outlining the airline’s future plans at Terminal C. “We are pleased to celebrate United’s long history at our Newark hub – a premier global gateway and a powerful economic engine,” said Jeff Smisek in a Press Release.
United plans to invest more than $150 million towards upgrades and state of the art facilities at Terminal C, including: redesigning the airline’s check-in facilities, more detailed flight-information displays, a new wide-body maintenance hangar, checked-baggage screening system and more.
