Qatar is the latest airline to provide its staff with full body protection



Qatar is the latest airline to provide its staff with full body protection
(CNN) – Flight attendant uniforms have developed rapidly over the years, with styles adapted to reflect fashion trends, along with a changing world.

However, there is no way a designer can predict his latest incarnation.

Qatar Airways is one of several airlines that has introduced Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) suits for its cabin crew in connection with the coronavirus pandemic.

From now onwards, all flight attendants for Qatar-flagged airlines will wear hazmat suits on top of their uniforms, along with safety goggles, gloves and masks during the flight.

In addition, passengers will be asked to wear face masks or masks on all flights starting May 25.

The airline recommends that travelers carry their belongings “for the purposes of being fit and comfortable.”

According to in an official statement, Qatar Airways cabin crew has been wearing PPE, such as masks and gloves, for flights for several weeks.

However, the “temporary” measures added were introduced as extra precautions.

“At Qatar Airways, we have introduced these additional safety measures on our flights to ensure the health and well-being of our passengers and cabin crew, and to limit the spread of the corona virus,” Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said.

“As an airline, we maintain the highest possible hygiene standards to ensure that we can fly people home safely during this time and provide greater assurance that safety is our number one priority.”

In addition, the airline will be equipped with large bottles of hand sanitizer, which can be used by cabin crew and passengers.

‘New normal’

The move comes a few weeks after Philippines Airlines and AirAsia reportedly launched a new uniform that combines PPE.

Philippines Airlines offer is said to have been designed by designer Edwin Tan, who uses a hospital gown for inspiration, while the AirAsia uniform is reportedly dreamed of by Puey Quinones, who describes the protective gear as “new normal.”

However, there seems to be some confusion with US airlines regarding customers and masks.

While Southwest Airlines has advised flight crews to refrain from stopping passengers from boarding if they refuse to wear masks, according to an internal memo obtained by CNN, American Airlines policy insists customers “might be refused boarding” for not wearing masks.

However, JetBlue Airways policy states, “Customers who refuse to adhere to our policies will be refused boarding.”

At present, FAA and TSA have not yet introduced regulations imposed by the government that make masks mandatory for passengers.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
