Crystal Cabin Award: Winners to be announced in 2021
New date for the 14th awards ceremony // Finalists for the current award still in the race // Special category dedicated to “travel after the pandemic”
Hamburg, 15 June 2020: The awards ceremony for the 14th Crystal Cabin Awards in Hamburg, originally planned for 1 April 2020, has been rescheduled for 13 April 2021. This has been decided by the Crystal Cabin Award Association in close consultation with the independent 27-person expert jury.
Crystal Cabin Award finalists from 2020 are still in the running
The Crystal Cabin Award, presented in eight categories to aircraft manufacturers, suppliers, airlines and universities, is the most coveted quality seal in the international aviation industry. But due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the awards ceremony for the premier global prize for aircraft cabin innovation at an exclusive gala dinner in Hamburg could not take place this year, along with the world’s leading trade show for the industry, the Aircraft Interiors Expo, which would normally have been held in Hamburg at the same time. And competition for a place in the finals was tougher than ever in 2020. Some 105 shortlisted entries were viewed and evaluated by the jury of international experts, a record in the fourteen-year history of the Crystal Cabin Award. The Crystal Cabin Award ceremony will now take place in Hamburg on 13 April 2021 with all 24 finalists still in the running. They will have the chance to prove themselves in a presentation to the expert jury the day before.
