As 2022 draws to a close, we’ve seen the airline industry bounce back with a vengeance. The industry has proven itself as strong as ever, rebounding with new routes, new aircraft, new interiors and a sense of optimism once again. We have continued to see innovation, enhancements, and a renewed investment into the passenger experience.
In 2022 I’ve heard many stories of colleagues and new faces alike find themselves new jobs and challenges within the industry. We’ve also seen some airlines reopen cadet training for pilots which is always a healthy sign of growth. Of course, we’re not out of the woods, and there are still challenges ahead for many, and the landscape isn’t the same across the globe, so I wish all of my followers who work in the industry a prosperous and successful 2023. Never stop chasing your dreams and continue to better the airline experience.
Once again, I look forward to a new year, there’s so much to look forward to especially as TheDesignAir has now celebrated a decade of supporting, following and reporting on the passenger experience. Personally I will be travelling as much as I can, reviewing products once again and seeing first-hand how airlines are continuing to put the passenger first and sharing that adventure with you.
A personal ask
As I do every year, I ask for your support, I don’t do it often, and I do it to keep the site ad-free, allowing the beautiful imagery from this industry shine through. As such, there’s no revenue incoming from the site, so instead I ask on your kind support to keep things going. If you are able to donate – whatever amount – it all gets funnelled back in to the site, to keep the site full of content. And I thank you personally for your kind support.
Every year I’m surprised and delighted by the support both individuals and studios provide towards this site, and without them… without you, it wouldn’t be possible.
