Hijabi pilot

Hello , I was wondering if regional or major airlines allow a female muslim pilot to wear a hijab? I’ve seen muslims that wear hijabs in the US air force.
Thanks.

Sahar,

Not that I am aware of. US airlines have a very strict uniform policy. The hijab would have to be an approved uniform piece and I am not aware of any US airline that allows them.

Sahar,

While many foreign airlines do I’m not aware of any US airlines that allow hijabs. Yes the Air Force does but that was a very recent change. That said I wouldn’t be surprised if that doesn’t change in the future.
