Having a diverse aircraft fleet provides customers the ideal jet for their journey, but can create challenges when trying to translate a branded interior across the different airframes. Signature interiors enhance the customer’s experience and create a branded flight. The correct fleet design allows customers to have the same feeling when they board any aircraft. Here are a few ways to create a cohesive design.


The best way to carry a consistent look and feel across different airframes is with a signature carpet. This statement piece will be memorable and can easily be scaled appropriately by the carpet manufacturer to suit the various planes in your fleet. The carpet shown in this example is Tai Ping’s Archytype I from their Epoch Collection and is the perfect sophisticated geometric pattern.


The perfect aircraft color palette is important for your aircraft fleet. It makes the first, basic impression of the aircraft. Upon boarding the plane, customers notice the visual brand immediately, catching the general mood and ambiance. In addition to branding, there are also maintenance advantages to using the same materials across the fleet. Keeping spare material on hand allows the upholstery to be repaired on any of the aircraft. This means less downtime repairing your fleet and more time flying with pristine interiors.

Varying seat frame sizes and manufacturers make it difficult to have the same cushion style across different aircraft makes and models. The most important aspect of seat styling is having the same general feel. In the example for this blog, all the seats have soft round edges and a coordinating curved horizontal seam.


Accessories like pillows and throws are the perfect opportunity to personalize each interior. Consider the size, shape, color, and placement of the accessory. Be purposeful with your additions and make sure they flow with the interior scheme.
