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.
