App icon

An app icon quickly expresses what features the app is offering, what is the app essence.

Usage

The app icon helps to find the app on the store and also on the home screen after installation.

An app icon is not a logo, it is a visual expression of products, services, and tools provided by Airbus.

The text has to be written in Helvetica Neue Bold in caps. The lower part of the icon consists of a white stripe and the Airbus logo in primary blue. The shape of the app icons are native and specific to each mobile OS.
