AIM Altitude delivers logo feature for Oman Air

Posted 12 December 2018 · Add Comment

AIM Altitude has produced a striking and unique feature panel to be showcased in the First-Class cabins of Oman Air’s Boeing 787-9 aircraft, recently launched on its Muscat to London route.



Manufactured in the UK by AIM Altitude’s Cabin Interiors team, the front-textured panel encompasses the airline’s sleek, modern logo and a shaped arch, reminiscent of Oman’s culture and history. The concept design was originated by Teague, in collaboration with the Oman Air Guest Experience and Branding team, before going through the industrial-design process at AIM Altitude.

Xia Cai, Senior Vice President Guest Experience & Branding at Oman Air, said: “The feature panel offers a significant enhancement to the atmosphere of the whole cabin. It is a dramatic piece that reflects our Omani architectural heritage through a modern interpretation without taking up valuable space. The lighting techniques mean that it takes on new emphasis at different points in the flight and can transition between calming subtlety and uplifting opulence.”

The panel includes Aim Altitude-engineered lighting, with LEDs from the pelmet, washing out onto the textured panel. The translucent centre logo has coloured opaque inserts, allowing a further LED light to project through only the main features of the logo. All the LED lighting is controlled via a sensor, which the ALD harmonises with the aircraft cabin lighting.

Peter Niemeyer, Principle Engineer at AIM Altitude, commented: “We utilised painted thermoplastic for the front-textured panel and the polyurethane logo was produced using a silicon casting. The LED lighting is extremely effective, and we are delighted with the extra dimension it brings to the panel.”

Project Manager from AIM Altitude, Dominic Norian, said: “We have enjoyed working on this project with Oman Air. The design concept is fresh and creative, providing a challenge to produce the desired lighting effect. The result is an eye-catching yet sophisticated feature panel.”
