SEPANG, June 8 ― AirAsia and leading hijab brand Naelofar Hijab has unveiled a special collaboration with an exclusively designed hijab for the airline’s female pilots.

Beginning June 2017, muslim female pilots from AirAsia and AirAsia X will don the white Naelofar Hijab that is specifically tailored to meet their workday needs.

Neelofa, founder of Naelofar Hijab said, “We are excited to work with AirAsia to redesign the hijab for their female pilots. Being given the opportunity to redesign the female hijab was very exciting and it gave us the opportunity to create a special piece that is comfortable, functional and stylish. Working closely with the AirAsia and their female pilots on every aspect of the design was a pleasant experience and we are happy with the final product.”

Using fabric materials with enhancement properties, the new hijab features greater stretch and recovery to allow for easy movement, and is adorned with the signature Naelofar Hijab symbol in Swarovski crystals.
