Cathay Pacific Airways and Cathay Dragon will give all female uniformed staff the option of wearing trousers for the first time, marking a historic and progressive change for the more than 70-year-old Hong Kong carrier.
“The company agrees to consider the option of a trouser uniform item for female crew. This will take place during the next uniform refresh,” the Hong Kong Dragon Airlines Flight Attendants Association said in a statement.
“We are pleased that we have reached an understanding on matters raised,” the airline said.
“There is no progress without change. Now is the time to make this happen by working together to review the uniforms that accurately reflect the values we represent.”
