For an idea as romantic as flying the world, visiting the unknown, traveling the globe and mingling with strangers, we seem to hold in our hands the most boring representation of that romantic notion: the technical, square, plain-looking flight boarding pass.

In these travel documents, design is almost always an after-thought, beyond the piles of data, barcodes and the obligatory airline logo. Let’s face it, how many of you collect boarding passes, for the design? That’s what I thought.

If concept designers can ever teach you anything, it is that there is no excuse to sidetrack design especially when it comes to branding. As these following examples will easily show, it’s time we give our boarding passes a much-needed facelift.

Here are 20 beautiful and practical printed and digital boarding pass designs you need to see.
