We have launched the “Aviation Design Initiative” — Why? That’s Why!
What are we observing?
For a long time, the exterior was the decisive, emotional factor in the purchase of vehicles. This is increasingly changing. Emotionalization – and thus the impetus to buy – is shifting more and more to the interior.
But that is not all. Another very important trend that will become permanently established is the desire for sustainability. When asked about the surface material itself, 57 percent believe that sustainable materials will become increasingly important for seat covers and surfaces in the next five to ten years, while genuine leather materials will lose importance in the participants’ view.
What conclusions do we draw from these findings as a service and solution provider in aviation?
We have recognized that our industry, too, must increasingly find and follow new paths in order to be able to cope with the foreseeable changes. This is the only way we can meet the demanding expectations of our customers now and in the future. Interior design and alternative materials will also play an increasingly important role in our business. Therefore, development in these important areas cannot be left to coincidence.
Against this background, we have decided to launch the Aviation Design Initiative. With this initiative, we want to specifically promote the development of interior design and materials in aviation.We are pleased that we have already been able to win first designers, artists and manufacturers for this idea and that the first exciting projects and cooperation are already taking shape.
As part of the Aviation Design Initiative, we will soon be able to present new business jet interior collections and show you how real art can find its way into the interior of your aircraft and turn it into a true highlight.
We also invite everyone who has a passion for design in aviation – designers, artists, architects, academics, fabricators – to join the Aviation Design Initiative! We are convinced that we can make a difference with this initiative and show great new possibilities and ways that will bring the aviation industry to a new level in terms of interior design.
For more information about the Aviation Design Initiative, and how to get involved in it please feel free to contact us.
Roger Hohl, who will join the Group as Chief Operating Officer (COO) on January 1, 2024, will also play an important role in the new management team.
Second life for a long-serving aircraft.
This Cessna Citation XLS has been flying for a long time for the numerous satisfied customers of Jet Fly — a successful smaller aviation operator from Linz in Austria. Now, the right moment has come for a refurbishment of a particular special kind.
