About The Awards

The Aviation Innovation Awards will celebrate collaboration, commitment and thought leadership, with a strong focus on protecting the industries long term future in these difficult circumstances. 

What are the Awards?

The post COVID-19 aviation industry remains strong and is working together to welcome the road to recovery, by focusing on increasing safety, operational efficiency and maintaining consumer relationships.   

Technology, innovation and strategic planning have helped to cope with the disruptions, allowing companies to maintain large degree of business continuity while keeping their employees and customers safe.

Our mission is to identify and reward companies who have demonstrated innovation, resilience and continually set standards of excellence.

How will it be judged?

Each entry is initially assessed to make sure it meets the eligibility criteria and all questioned are answered. If so, the entry gets approved and continues into the evaluation phase.

All approved entries in a category are then evaluated on their own merit and based on the set criteria, the final score of the entry is the average score of each jury member.
