Based in kyiv until Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, the Ukrainian low-cost SkyUp Airlinehas settled down in Malta to be able to continue operations in Europe.
This summer, SkyUp Airlines is updating the uniform of its male cabin crew: stewards will soon be wearing comfortable polo shirts, pants and sneakers. The clothes are Made in Ukraine, manufactured at the ТК-Style factory, still standing and operational in the city of Chernihiv, the epicenter of hostilities at the start of the Russian invasion. The hostesses have already been wearing a casual and comfortable uniform since October 2021.
” Despite the war, our country continues to stand, people continue to live and business continues to function. This motivated us to continue developing the work on a uniform for male flight attendants. Our new uniform represents values that unite us. The desire to live one’s life, to plan the future, to work and live in our native country“, can we read in the press release from SkyUp Airlines.
Malta-based SkyUp Airlines’ first aircraft is a 189-seat Boeing 737-800, assembled in 2011 and entering service before the war; it is now registered 9H-SAU, has benefited from new Geven seats, and bears the slogan “The Power of Freedom”, produced in partnership with the fundraising platform UNITED24. The aircraft has been operating since May 6 between Valletta-Luqa and the airports of Trapani and Palermo in Italy, as well as between Hamburg in Germany and Hurghada in Egypt. Other aircraft are expected by the end of the year, which will be subject to new leases.
