50+ Popular Airline Logos

By Ben Moss Posted Mar. 10, 2009 Reading time: Less than a minute

Every day thousands of people take it to the air… With so many airlines to choose from, branding is extremely important and at its core lies logo design.

In this article we’ll take a logo at the logos of over 50 popular airlines. The list is by no means a complete list of all airlines and is just intended for inspiration for your own projects.

Noteworthy is the lack of any depiction of an airplane in most of these logos, but a tendency to suggest flying through the use of curved shapes that resemble wings.

The fonts used tend to be sans serif for the most part, although there’s a fair share of serif typefaces as well. The colors vary a lot, but there appears to be a clear tendency towards reds and blues. Now fasten your seatbelt and let’s take off!
