Creating airline logos requires expertise and careful planning, otherwise, you’ll end up with a mediocre design. Online logo templates are out of the question, as they can be generic and bland. The best way to go is to work with the pros. Here are Penji’s best airline logos to get your creative juices started:

1. Spark Airways

airline logo example

Airline logos are commonly placed on the tails of planes. When you have a memorable logo, people can easily identify your brand, even from down below. This logo design created for Spark Airways is a great example of this concept.

It is an image of a spark that can look good even from 30,000 feet up in the air. The colors are an excellent combination of yellow, red, and orange, which signifies warmth and hospitality. 

2. Laguna Airlines

From a word that means bay, inlet, or a large body of water, the Laguna Airlines logo sports a primarily blue color scheme. On the brand name itself, we can see waves of water that add interest to the otherwise plain font type used. The wing at the beginning of the logo perfectly tells us what the brand is about.

This airline logo projects a cool, innovative, and trendy appeal that’s suitable for business that thrives on these traits.

A few tips when designing airline logos

The airline industry has a high standard when it comes to designing a logo. It has to show the niche’s prestige, professionalism, and a touch of glamor. Below are a few things you need to consider when designing an airline logo:

Your brand identity: Your logo should reflect your airline’s personality, which includes its mission, vision, values, and target audience. It should convey its unique selling point and set it apart from the competition.

The symbolism: Use symbols or icons that are relevant to your industry. For airline logos, you can use airplane wings, clouds, globes, or any other aviation or travel-related imagery.

Simplicity: A simple and easily recognizable design is a must. Go for a logo that’s uncluttered, memorable, and versatile. It should look good on a business card, an airplane tail, or wherever you put it on.

Your brand colors: If you don’t have them yet, select your brand colors that evoke emotions and associations related to travel. Blue is an excellent choice to represent the sky, while red can convey energy quite well.

Timelessness: Go for a logo design that will remain effective and relevant for a long period of time. As much as possible, avoid jumping on trends that can become outdated quickly.
