Aer Lingus opens a new travel shop in Dublin and shows off a new summer staff uniform.

The latest uniform for Aer Lingus staff designed by Paul Costelloe is launched at a reception in a new travel shop in Grafton Street, Dublin.

The new uniform replaces one introduced in 1984 and features a collarless v-necked jacket in a houndstooth check of navy and green. The double breasted jacket is worn over a plain navy pencil skirt.

Thirty percent of Aer Lingus business comes from the company's travel shops around Ireland. In addition to purchasing flight tickets, the Chief Executive of Aer Lingus Cathal Mullan explains that customers can also book car hire, hotels and insurance.

When our customers come into our travel shop they’ll find they can get everything they need for their trip.

Aer Lingus is looking forward to a successful year and expects to bring over one million passengers to Ireland.
