To set a pecific date format, you need to use DATE_FORMAT() in MySQL. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   (
   Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   ArrivalDate date
   );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.60 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable(ArrivalDate) values('2019-01-31');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable(ArrivalDate) values('2019-04-26');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable(ArrivalDate) values('2019-03-01');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.13 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+----+-------------+
| Id | ArrivalDate |
+----+-------------+
|  1 | 2019-01-31  |
|  2 | 2019-04-26  |
|  3 | 2019-03-01  |
+----+-------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to set specific date format in MySQL −

mysql> select Id,DATE_FORMAT(ArrivalDate, '%d-%M-%Y') from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+----+--------------------------------------+
| Id | DATE_FORMAT(ArrivalDate, '%d-%M-%Y') |
+----+--------------------------------------+
|  1 | 31-January-2019                      |
|  2 | 26-April-2019                        |
|  3 | 01-March-2019                        |
+----+--------------------------------------+
3 rows in set (0.06 sec)
