What is the problem?

What is the solution?

SkyUp will replace pants and a jacket in the men's uniform. They will get a casual style, the main features of which are convenience and practicality.

The key color of the uniform is dark blue with small orange and blue stripes on the polo shirts.

How does it work?

The Ukrainian airline plans to issue its flight attendants updated uniforms by the end of the summer.
