Low-cost carrier AirAsia in collaboration with Naelofar Hijab has created an exclusive hijab to be worn by its female pilots.

"Starting the month of June, AirAsia and AirAsia X's female pilots will wear the white-colored Naelofar Hijab that has been specifically designed to ease their duties," said AirAsia brand department head Rudy Khaw on Thursday as quoted by Antara news agency.

Khaw says this is the first time the airline collaborated with a hijab designer to create such a product. The company reportedly also cooperated with the brand to breathe new air to hijab design for its other workers.
