Virgin Atlantic’s female cabin crew are no longer required to wear makeup to work.
The airline’s female cabin crew, known for their red uniform, will also be given trousers as standard, rather than having to specially request them.
The move is a “significant change” for the aviation industry, according to Virgin.
Virgin Atlantic executive vice president of customer, Mark Anderson, said that the airline had “always stood out from the crowd and done things differently”.

“We want our uniform to truly reflect who we are as individuals while maintaining that famous Virgin Atlantic style,” he added.
“We have been listening to the views of our people and as a result have announced some changes to our styling and grooming policy that support this.
