Award Categories

The Crystal Cabin Awards are presented in 7 categories.

 

 

Greener Cabin, Health, Safety & Environment

This category combines different classes of innovations. An entry for this category must either reduce negative effects on the environment, or it must minimise health or safety hazards and security problems for passengers, staff or live cargo. European and international legislation compliance will be taken into consideration for the evaluation of the entry. The innovation should not restrict an individual’s comfort unnecessarily to gain high marks.

Industrial Design & Visionary Concepts

This category comprises Industrial Design of products, modules and assemblies that enhance efficiency. Effectiveness and efficiency of mechanical solutions and technical concepts will be evaluated here as well as their aesthetic design. Further evaluation criteria are ergonomic advantages and ease of implementation and usage. This category includes e.g. seats, galleys, lavatories, trolleys, etc.

Visionary concepts can give us an impression of aircraft cabins of tomorrow. How can we provide air transport in the future without loss of comfort while current technologies and practices (especially carbon based fuel) become more and more limiting? How can passenger comfort and aircraft efficiency even be raised?
