Dubai, September 11, 2010
The Custom Jet Show, the international showcasing platform for customised aircraft, has announced prizes for the best in-flight entertainment systems in partnership with French-based Happy Design Studios, designers of aircraft livery.
Winners of the best in-flight entertainment systems for commercial aircraft and private/executive aircraft award categories will receive free livery consultation services by Happy Design Studios’ design experts.
Depending on the aircraft category, each design created by the company is valued from $76,000 to $102,000. The awards ceremony takes place on November 8 at the Grand Rotana Hotel in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
An increasing shift towards the personalisation of aircraft is being witnessed, especially in the private and executive aviation industries in the Mena region, according to media reports.
These often take the form of bespoke interiors, customised liveries and choice of in-flight entertainment systems, the reports said.
With the personalised aircraft interiors market in Mena, Europe, India and Asia currently constituting $1 billion per annum, together with the anticipated growth in business aviation, the scope for further expansion in this industry is immense.
According to Bombardier’s 2010 market forecast, the business jet market is expected to exhibit strong increase from 2010-2029 with 26,000 deliveries taking place during this period.
The Custom Jet Show takes place in Sharm El Sheikh on November 7 and 8 alongside the Avex International Airshow.
