Air travel has changed a lot over the past century – – and so has fashion.

Founded on October 6, 1923, Czech Airlines is the fifth oldest still-operational airline in the world; only KLM (1919), Aviatica (1919), Qantas (1920), and Aeroflot (1923) date back longer.

The airline has also seen a lot of changes over the years. To celebrate their 95th birthday last week, Czech Airlines released a video showcasing changes in cabin crew uniforms over the past century.

Those include some surprisingly diverse styles over the years, from professional and stylish 1930s uniforms to sleek and colorful outfits from the 60s, 70s and 80s that encapsulate the eras they come from.

Funnily enough, the present-day Czech Airlines cabin crew uniforms seem closest in style to the original 1930s versions.

Models used in the video are real Czech Airlines cabin crew members.

And to celebrate 95 years on the air, crew members are now wearing the retro outfits on Czech Airlines flights.
