Happy Design has applied this bespoke scheme to a Global 5000

Bespoke aircraft exterior designer Happy Design Studio has announced a business partnership with France’s Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur (ACA) as part of a joint vision to continue the improvement of customer service quality at the private/business jet facilities at ACA’s airports at Cannes-Mandelieu, Nice-Côte d’Azur and Saint-Tropez.

“With every wish to develop this business, we want to give our customers the kind of services they expect, and not only air services,” said Dominique Thillaud, chairman of ACA. “The partnership with Happy Design Studio is part of that approach.”

Happy Design Studio will present its work via displays at the three ACA airports, allowing potential customers to experience the artistry of founder Didier Wolff. For Happy Design the tie-up provides the ability to reach aircraft owners who may be looking for eye-catching bespoke exterior designs for their aircraft, providing them with what Wolff described as “an opportunity to meet a new world of design.” The airports could also provide ideal locations for the handover of newly decorated aircraft.

Happy Design takes on only a handful of projects annually, with the focus on maintaining high standards of design and quality. “I would rather do a few aircraft a year and do them well,” Wolff told AIN. “It begins on a 3D model and ends with personal supervision of the painting. If that means spending two weeks at the paint shop, then I will do that.”
