import Airplane from "@kiwicom/orbit-components/lib/icons/Airplane";

After adding import into your project you can use it simply like:

<Airplane />

Functional specs

  • If you don’t pass customColor or color prop to Icon, it will inherit color from parent container with currentColor by default.


  • If an icon is used standalone meaning it conveys information by itself use ariaLabel to help screen readers understand the content.
  • If an icon is marked or already labeled by surrounding content, use ariaHiddento hide icon from screen readers.
