Regional start-up airline BermudAir has scooped an award for interior design at this year’s Crystal Cabin awards.

The BermudAir Aisle Class Suite is a business class passenger seat for its Embraer 175 aircraft flying from the USA to Bermuda. It was created by converting 2-2 economy seats into a 1-1 suite. Judges thought that the solution was cost-efficient and sustainable, as over 70 per cent of the existing seats are reused. Instead of designing new seats, the existing seats were remodelled to provide more comfort and additional storage space.

A jury of 28 industry experts selected the eight most innovative products from a wide range of submissions. Overall, the award-winning entries represent a vision of air travel that is more connected, more comfortable, more sustainable and more accessible than ever before.

“This year’s submissions included many outstanding innovations that set new standards for the passenger experience by better recognising and responding to the individual needs of passengers – across all ticket classes,” commented Ralf Gust, President of the Crystal Cabin Awards Association. “The Crystal Cabin Awards 2024 have once again shown that innovation in the aviation industry continues unabated”.

At launch, the airline’s Embraer 175s had 88 seats in a single-class configuration, but only sold 44 on each flight, affording customers the benefit of additional space. In October 2023, the airline announced that its aircraft will be reconfigured with dual-class cabin.
