British Airways allows ‘Hijab’ for Women employees

London (UK) – British Airways has changed the uniforms of its employees recently. Their women employees are now allowed to wear the Hijab.

British fashion designer Ozwald Boateng has designed garments for all British Airways employees, including a tunic and Hijab for its female cabin crew aside from dress, skirt and trouser. Now, 30,000 employees of British Airways will be required to comply with this rule.

Sean Doyle, the Chairman and CEO of British Airways said, “Our uniform is an iconic representation of our brand, something that will carry us into our future, representing the very best of modern Britain and helping us deliver a great British original service for our customers”.

Editorial viewpoints

  • We can see from this how British Airways is taking decisions favouring Muslims under the name of secularism.
  • On one hand, Iranian women are protesting against the hijab and on the other, the reformist nation’s Airways is taking decisions suiting Middle Ages. What right these people have to talk about the liberty of women ?
