We will discover it here.

Qatar cabin crew uniform: What you need

to know

The uniform will be given to you towards the end of your Ab-Initio Cabin Crew Training

course, which lasts around 8 weeks.

This is where you will be taught all the skills and drills that cabin crew know in order to

go for their ights.

First, you will be taken to the Uniform Department where skilled tailors will see you and

give you items to try on.

Don’t worry these men and women have a lot of experience and can guess someone’s

size just by looking at them!

Keep in mind that Qatar Airways is a Muslim Airline, therefore, uniform tting is

conservative.

So, expect a somewhat loose skirt, trousers, and shirt.

Note: If there are alterations to be made, this will only be done through the Uniform

Department and not outside.

Even though the uniform is part of the package oered in the job specications, it is

technically not free.

Items such as suitcase, trolley, and handbag will be deducted during the rst 3 months

of your contract via a small fee.

And when it’s time to resign you must return every single item in the exact count as they

were given to you since you joined or else, you will be charged for lost uniform and it

can be quite a shock to your pocket.

Every year depending on your joining date, you will be entitled for a new set of uniform

6 blouses/shirts

2 skirts/pants

2 jackets

3 dining jackets

1 hat

1 belt

4 name badges

4 scrunchies (females)

2 neckties

a winter coat (not usually worn).

Laundry

Laundry is included and usually, there is a laundry station in each male or female

accommodation where you can drop o or pick up your items during specied timings.

Colors

There are 2 dierent colors QR’s cabin crew uniforms: Grey and Burgundy.

But why there’s a couple of cabin crew wearing Grey colored uniforms and the others

are wearing burgundy?

This is because the Grey one is given to Cabin Services Directors and Cabin Seniors

because of their rank.

The rest of the cabin crew wear burgundy.

Grooming Ocers

Before each ight cabin crew will get checked by the Grooming Ocers.

This department makes sure that everyone is in line with the standards of the company.

The grooming ocers go to each brieng room checking things like uniform tting

correctly (not too tight, not too loose), hairstyle done properly, makeup is correct, nails

are maintained, stockings are skin-colored appropriate, etc.

If there is any discrepancy, it will be informed to each cabin crew individually who must

correct it immediately if possible.

Female crew uniform components

This is a description of items provided for female crew and when do they have to wear

them.

Jacket – It’s used mostly while walking at airports and during boarding and

deplaning/disembarkation. It must be worn fully buttoned and if not worn folded inside

out over your arm.

Blouse – The number of blouses given initially is 6. You must always have a spare one

inside your cabin trolley in case you get yours damaged or stained in-ight. Since the

fabric is very light, a camisole (white, beige or skin color) has to be compulsory worn

inside and over your underwear.

Skirt / Pants – 2 skirts and 2 pants will be provided. As mentioned earlier, the tting has

to be modest, meaning not too tight nor too short. The length of the skirt has to cover

your knees. It is optional if you want to wear pants or skirts. But to me, trousers are

more comfortable during longer ights.

Shoes – Each crew member is given 2 pairs of shoes.

High heel shoes to be worn on ground, so used while reporting for duty, during

boarding and disembarkation, at airports, company headquarters, promotions etc

Lower heel shoes are used in-ight, which means once cabin crew are released from

their jumpsuits after takeo. From that moment on they change into the low heeled

shoes and they will change back to their high heel shoes before landing. The brand is

usually Hush Puppies. You can nd Hush Puppies shoes and similar ones here.
