AirJet Designs is an award-winning aviation design studio that specializes in aircraft interior design.
Founded in 2009, the studio is headquartered in Toulouse, France with a commercial presence in Miami, Hong Kong, Montreal and Sao Paulo.
We design customized interiors for private jets, including for corporate, VIP/VVIP, and Head of State aircraft. For its private jet clients, the studio offers unique interior creations that reflect the individual needs and tastes of a select clientele. As “Tailors of the Finest Private Jets”, AirJet Designs is focused on delivering beauty, luxury, and sophistication to airborne surroundings.
We also design interiors for airlines seeking stunning interiors for passengers. Our ability to serve airline clients is due to our link with Designescence, a design firm specialized in airline interior design. In 2014, after collaborating on several projects, Designescence, was joined with AirJet Designs, allowing us now to serve both private jet and commercial aircraft operators.The design team includes industrial and interior designers, trim and color specialists, and 3D graphic artists. Creativity and originality are at the heart of the designs created by the studio, due to a good degree to the multicultural composition of the staff, which brings to the table fresh, innovative ideas and serves as a source of ongoing inspiration.
In 2013, AirJet Designs was honored with two awards at the prestigious International Yacht & Aviation Awards for its “Dolce Vita” aircraft interior design.
As part of The Aero Experts Group,the designers at AirJet Designs also benefit from the extensive experience of aircraft interior certification engineers working alongside them, thus allowing creativity to be "realistic" and compliant with airworthiness requirements from the start of every project.

We help our Clients in choosing the aircraft or helicopter that suits their personal needs in terms of distance traveled, frequency of trips, and aircraft intended use.
With our experience in the aviation industry, we have developed many reliable contacts with aircraft brokers that allows us to assist our Clients in finding the right aircraft—a necessary step very often before we even begin to discuss the design and customization of the vehicle.
Whether you are looking to outfit an aircraft or helicopter for your personal use, for charter or leasing purposes, for a Head of State VIP, for organized gaming trips, or for a professional sports team, our team will assist you right from the start to ensure your project is a success.
We assist our Clients in defining the style and theme of the design, in order to obtain a unique aircraft that suits their personal taste and wishes.
We offer various artistic design options by matching materials, colors, and furniture styles to give the aircraft cabin a harmonious sensation of luxury.
Based on our network of suppliers for VIP cabin interior components, we can identify the finest materials meeting aviation certification requirements and blend them to create bespoke design proposals.
We also present our Clients with various options in terms of communications and entertainment systems, along with the latest cabin management systems to deliver a complete aircraft design package.
Working alongside our Client during the entire design process, we refine our design proposals to find the perfect concept that best fits our Client’s expectations.
3D Mock-up Generation
During this phase, the complete interior is modeled in 3D in order to check for space allocation and interface with the airframe structure.
We generate detailed 3D rendering views, cabin walk-throughs and validate the technical feasibility of the overall design.
A design is usually started with a two-dimensional sketch, but a 3D mock-up is indispensable to ensure a design concept is not only viable for ergonomics purposes, but also for aesthetics harmony.  Color and materials can be selected and combined, but proportions and interaction between colors, adding the presence of light or darkness, can best be refined using the aid of perspectives afforded by 3D views. Also, a 3D mock-up is an excellent way to present the design to the owner in a lifelike, realistic manner.
We specify every technical requirement of the cabin interior in order to prepare the completion of the aircraft.
The technical specification document puts into writing all the technical requirements associated with the design.  This is an important step to make the transition between design concept and reality.   The technical specification document needs to provide information on the level of materials to be used in the cabin.  It also specifies every technical detail of the aircraft interior, such as electrically activated shades, type of features in the bathroom, type of ovens in the galley, etc.
We assist our Clients in finding the right completion facility and follow closely the completion project until delivery.
Our role is to interface with the completion center and suppliers who will be responsible for the craftsmanship and manufacture of all cabin elements and making our designs come to life.
We work alongside them to explain the initial design intent, therefore enabling them to transform that vision into a completed project.
Branding Design & Development
Branding is oftentimes at the root of where we start our design work with our clients. It gives direction to our creativity and guides us in our ultimate goal, creating the design elements that further enhance a memorable brand.
We work with airlines clients to create a new brand identity for them or to revitalize an existing brand. We then create a global brand strategy that will foresee the effects of the new branding on many different touch points.
Our branding work includes new designs for aircraft livery, Graphic User Interface (GUI) for IFE, website design, cabin crew uniforms, ticket counters, in-flight magazines, business cards, menu cards, onboard amenities, print and digital communications, advertising campaigns, and packaging.
We create graphics for an exterior aircraft design that is consistent with the brand values of the airline. As a plane criss-crosses the globe, the aircraft livery takes a prominent role in representing the airline.
It is an extremely important instrument of communication for an airline, letting the world know its values and culture. For all these reasons, we take careful consideration of the aircraft livery designs we create, so that an airline’s branding identity resonates effortlessly.
Aircraft Cabin Interior Design
AirJet Designs is an interior design agency with a specialized know-how for the design of aircraft interiors.
We help our airline clients achieve passenger brand loyalty and recognition by creating sublime aircraft cabins.
We facilitate an optimized passenger experience by surrounding travelers with well-designed and aesthetically beautiful environments.
Our team has the expertise and experience to design entire aircraft interiors, whether for First and Business, or Premium Economy and Economy. We know the suppliers that make products for the aviation industry (manufacturers of seats, textiles, leathers, flooring) which makes the design process efficient and informative for our airline clients. Because of our experience, we also take into consideration those issues which are a concern for airlines: materials durability, maintenance, and cost to quality.
We start a design project with focus on the strategic positioning of the airline brand and use the brand identity as a guide. We do research on trends in aviation, competitors, and areas such as home and hotel design. We provide proposals for the interior cabin designs, create mood boards, 3D simulations, put together sample selections, and provide all the documentation needed, such as P/N components.
We believe that airlines seeking market differentiation can achieve this through exceptionally designed cabins, making the brand stand out and setting it apart from its competitors.
Dynamic lighting scenarios, known also as “intelligent lighting systems”, are increasingly being used for aircraft cabins to create certain types of ambiance, which can prove to be instrumental as lighting is known to have an influence on human behavior.
As advances have been made in lighting for aviation, the lights used in cabins have become more subtle, and come closer to shades of natural light, thanks to new, low energy and sustainable LED technology. Lighting is a useful tool airlines can use to improve the passenger travel experience and can be used to break up the length of a flight, reduce the feeling of jetlag and increase the passenger’s sense of well-being.
These lighting tools help to bring the passenger closer to familiar environments such as those in homes, hotels, or restaurants. We are able to create different ambient lighting scenarios using different colors and intensities, such as simulating the sun setting, or sunrise. The choice of colors, overall, is an important element in the design of the cabin.
Industrial Product Design
“We take an artistic approach to our product design, throwing in inventiveness and a large dose of technical expertise,” says JP Alfano, Creative Director for AirJet Designs.
The Design Studio has extensive experience in product design and development, focusing on producing creative innovative products with a basis in function, ergonomics, and the user experience.
Having the ability to design, engineer and prototype all the products created in-house, we design all types of aircraft interior products, including galleys, closets, partitions, lavatories, and bars. We form a collaborative relationship with our clients to carefully listen to their wishes and needs in order to arrive at a product design that meets their requirements in terms of look, feel, and function.
Good industrial design has to meet the needs and expectations of the intended user, but also has to look good. Excellent aesthetics is a built in requirement for any final product we create.
Aircraft Seatiing Design
Our industrial design know-how extends to the design of aircraft seating. From alluring designs for First and Business class seats to smart and functional for Premium and Economy classes, we know how to design it.
Our work and experience in the design of seating for private jets lends itself well to the creative foundation needed to create comfortable and desirable seats for all types of passengers.
Visualization & Video Animation
Creating realistic, high definition visuals is part of the project design process our studio excels in. Visualization is an important tool in helping our airline clients visualize and analyze their project, with all the detail of the materials and lighting that makes it almost real.
We create high quality 3D models to deliver the graphic visualization needed to view our designs. Our photo realistic rendering solutions allow our clients to make important decisions before freezing a design and moving into manufacturing or production.
We also create 3D walkthroughs of the aircraft cabin and animation videos that provide an unparalleled method of “seeing” a new product or cabin. Our renderings and computer animation videos are in high definition and are used by clients in promotional campaigns to launch the newly designed cabins.
