“Red socks for red noses”

Published on : Friday, June 19, 2015

unnamed (5)Employees of Austrian Airlines spontaneously proclaimed ‘#redstockingsday’ yesterday by wearing red socks for a good cause for a day. 351 employees took part in the campaign, buying red stockings and socks provided by uniform supplier Wagner & Glass. EUR 1,755 were collected in the campaign. The donation will be handed over to ROTE NASEN Clowndoctors  next week.


The uniformed employees of Austrian Airlines recently decided the unmistakable red stockings should remain part of the future uniform, which is to be introduced in 2016. Administrative and technical employees – the staff who deal with everyday working life without red stockings on – wanted to make their mark as well.


Sabine Mlnarsky, Head of Human Resources at Austrian Airlines, said this: “I’m pleased to see a huge readiness to help being demonstrated here. At the end of the day, the campaign was also a sign of solidarity with our uniformed staff.” Austrian CFO Heinz Lachinger, who is himself a convinced red socks wearer, continued: “The level of identification with the company amongst staff is incredibly high here, and red stockings have become our trademark. Both things make us unique.”


Austrian Airlines employs around 6,000 people, 3,500 of whom wear the red uniform, including 2,700 female flight attendants and Station employees who wear the unmistakable red stockings and red shoes.
