TheDesignAir is pleased to announce the shortlist for the DesignAir Awards 2019 and just like last couple of years, we’ve opened some of the categories to the public. The voting is now closed!


Now is your chance to pick from our shortlisted categories for Best Design Airline, by region, across the globe. All it takes is two minutes of your time.


What is a ‘Design Airline’?

A Design Airline is one that celebrates design as part of the passenger experience. Airlines with beautiful liveries, great uniforms, slick hard & soft products that create ‘wow’ moments. Design Airlines should make sure the passenger experience is contemporary, relevant and a pleasant experience from start to finish. It’s less about service, or on-time nature of the carrier, and more about how they lead their region, celebrating their roots or raising the international standard of design in aviation.
