Olympic Airlines @ AXDW

Look what I bumped into at AXDW: an Olympic Airlines corner.

Now that OA is officially under the wing of MIG (Marfin Investment Group), amongst everything that's changing are the air hostesses' uniforms. At AXDW there was a small display of past designs, to remind everyone of the competition at large for designing the new ones.

Apparently, everyone who is a Greek citizen and has a licence to practice this profession can enter, then 3 will be selected and placed online for public vote. A source said the candidates should use blue and green as basic colours. The colours of the circles can be placed too, but discreetly. Competition ends at the end of April.

In the past, Coco Chanel, Billy Bo, Pierre Cardin, Aslanis and Tseklenis have designed uniforms for the airline too. Let's see who's next.

In the meantime, all the past air-hostess costumes of OA are on display at the Museum located at the old West Airport of Athens (Ellinikon Aerodromio, Poseidonos).
