Network Aviation case study
Founded in 1998, Network Aviation is Western Australia’s premier Aircraft Charter Company. Specialising in air charter services for corporate, the resources industry, and emergency freight, the airline operates over 300 flights a week. Network Aviation also operates several regular airlines services for Qantas under the QantasLink banner.
Over the last 20 years Network Aviation has grown significantly, and in 2011 became a subsidiary of the Qantas Group. As such, Network Aviation is committed to providing outstanding customer service both on the ground and in the air, and have an excellent reputation for safety and reliability.
Network Aviation approached DTY back in 2015 to design and produce bespoke uniforms for their flight crews. The new uniform collection needed to project a professional image to passengers whilst providing a dynamic and fashionable look that cabin crews could be proud of.
Our uniform solution
Our design team worked hand in hand with Network Aviation to develop an iconic look based on a sketch by one of the flight attendants. Through our extensive knowledge, skills and facilities we developed bespoke garment patterns using high performance fabrics to create a stylish uniform collection for the flight crew.
The updated look for female staff members featured a feminine knee length black dress and a white blouse, both with a distinct asymmetrical red trim neckline, black pants, and a matching black jacket, also with red trim. Accessories include a red leather belt and an ombre chiffon scarf. Male staff members were offered a black jacket, white shirt, black pants and a red tie.
The collection was made using premium fabrics including Sorbtek® – an innovative polyester yarn with permanent moisture management technology that keeps the wearer cool, dry and comfortable. All the fabrics were selected for performance, durability and suitability for specific air crews requirements, such as fire safety.

Off to a flying start
The final wardrobe collection was successful not only for following the design brief and transforming a sketch into a well curated uniform range, but also in delivering a practical uniform solution and iconic look for the airline.
The new Network Aviation collection set a benchmark with smart, modern and stylish designs that captured the elegance of air travel while still being practical and comfortable for performing daily tasks.
Very happy with presentation, thank you.
