Some assume that this color was chosen as it resembles the sky. But the explanation is not as simple as you may think.The first blue seats were installed on aircraft several decades ago. 

According to British scientists, most people associate the color blue with reliability and safety, which is very important even for passengers who do not suffer from flight phobias. The colour psychology experts say that the colour blue boosts confidence and trust in many situations.

Moreover, according to the survey 90% of people subconsciously decide on the attractiveness of a business depending on the colors of the brand.

But also there is a practical reason why airlines choose blue seats. Dirt and scratches are less visible in this color and therefore these seats can be kept cleaner for a longer period of time compared to seats covered with another lighter colour.
