airline icons

swift can display airline icons in its views. This is optional, but a nice eye catcher. If you want to add missing icons please consider the following rules:

NOTE: we keep different icon formats in parallel. The using application can choose the most appropriate one
  • use a 4:1 ratio, such as 300:75px
  • maximum size approx. 300:75px (see hint about hires below)
  • use png format
  • name is supposed to be the 5 digit id plus airline ICAO code, e.g. 03221_DLH.png
    • you can see the id in the mapping tool
    • or in the datastore ICAO view here
  • if the airline is not yet available, request the airline first: Change request
  • do not use copyright protected icons! Hint, check Wikipedia, they show you the copyright for each icon
  • Naming scheme:
    • We might use higher resolutions in the future, you can also add a high res version like 1024:205px. In that case naming is same as above, but hi in the middle, 06461_LHA.hi.png, 03221_DLH.hi.png
    • Dark optimized icons (for a black background for instance) will be using .do in the name.
    • Examples:
      • 03221_DLH.png lowres version (approx 300:75)
      • lowres version, dark optimized (approx 300:75)
      • 03221_DLH.hi.png hires version
      • hires version, dark optimized
