###Arrow Airways

Airline Description

Arrow airways is a 5 years old airline company born from the dream of a young adult who suddenly won the lottery. Since he grew up in a very small village, he always had the urge to make the world a connected place, where people could go see their loved ones in no time, like their grandparents wished to visit his cousin and couldn´t. Well, now they can! :slight_smile: It´s not a really big company, but it´s growing fast because it´s really affordable. Although, Arrow airlines never forget about the comfort of their clients. To reduce costs, this airline just works with one type of airplane. The next dream of the boy is to create an Arrow HUB. Maybe in another 5 years…


###Valkyire Air

[details=Airline Description]The green future of aviation is here with our brand new state of the art plans fitted with the latest in engine technology, aerodynamics and safety features that out Valkyrie are in a league of its own.

All our jets are recognisable by the minimal sleek design. Our jets are designed and built with class, sophistication and our unwavering desire to provide the best possible flying experience for our members. Our design embodies the future, with muted colours and a non-overstated look, only those who travel Valkyrie will be able to distinguish us. We remain very exclusive and our design portraits that image.

We at Valkyrie Air believe the future doesn’t require compromise, doesn’t require anything less than the best aviation has to offer. That’s why here at Valkyrie we strive to be the leaders in high-end sustainable flight. We hope to provide our members with the best possible flying experience without harming the planet we share.

Valkyrie Air is the pinnacle of aviation and that is all thanks to its two founding fathers. It was with much resistance and negatively from the aviation community that drove such an idea, such a goal. Valkyrie Air is that goal.

Valkyrie air now operates a fairly large fleet of state of the art jets ready to ferry any and all who wish to travel the Valkyrie way. We operate worldwide with our base of operations in Copenhagen Denmark. This is only the start for Valkyrie Air, the world needs us, you need us, we all need Valkyrie Air.

Let me start by saying im stunned by all the positive reactions in the design contest post as well as here. I think I speak for all of the great designers who made it to the final ten that it’s an honor to contribute to ACEO in such a special way.

May the best designs win!

I’ll make your words mine!

Obrigado!

Some really worthy entrants here, although I’m a bit disappointed that some of the entries on the previous thread didn’t make the final. A big shout out to Royal Norwegian, Alpha International Airways and Matryoshka Russian Airlines as just three of my favourites that didn’t make the cut.

Not to detract from the finalists - all worthy of inclusion in the game, and it’s good to see some new designs that weren’t in the original thread. It’s going to be a tight race. It certainly wasn’t easy to pick a top three. Best of luck to all entrants, and I look forward to welcoming the winners to my new airport!

Congratulations everyone for the amazing designs! I’m sure that the devs had a very hard time choosing their top ten. Don’t feel sad if you didn’t reach the top ten… See it on the bright side, you have mastered some nice Photoshop skills ;). And, as the devs say: “There will be more opportunities like this one…”. :smiley:

As I said on Discord, while I didn’t get on the shortlist, I wasn’t offended!! There’s tons of very nice designs that made it! Perhaps a few of the others are being set aside for the future?

Great designs guys! It was pretty hard for me to just decide on three… so good luck to you all!
Sad that my design didn’t make the cut because I still like the concept of Hygge Airways :wink: but compared to the other designs my photoshop skills were just amateurish :laughing:
