Excuse the pun, but Icelandair have perhaps one of the coolest liveries around in the air! The airline has introduced a pretty impressive aircraft livery to celebrate their 80th year flying. The Boeing 757-200, which took 2,500 man-hours to paint, is named after the largest glacier in the whole of Europe. Named “Vatnajökull” (I know, try and pronounce that!) the new vibrant livery will bring one of Iceland’s most famous landmarks across the carrier’s ever expanding network across Europe and North America. It is very similar to it’s Northern Lights aircraft, the airline has also invested in turning its interior into an experiential zone.
If you are fortunate enough to fly on this plane then make sure you take the best photos that you can. Watch the video below to find out more and also check this link out!
Hawaiian Airlines revealed an updated logo and a new livery for its aircraft on May 1, 2017, though the changes are more a tweak to the previous versions than a complete overhaul.
Hawaiian debuted its new look by rolling out one of its Boeing 717 jets (registered tail number N488HA) in the new paint scheme on the 1st of May 2017, celebrated as "Lei Day" in Hawaii. The carrier also provided the media an image and a logo (on the top of the article) of an Airbus A330 painted in the new livery.
“Our new livery embodies a stronger, more contemporary representation of Hawaiian Airlines’ culture of service and hospitality, which is the bedrock of our guest experience,” said president and CEO Mark Dunkerley, who unveiled the new brand design at Honolulu International Airport during a special employee event on Lei Day, a statewide annual celebration of Hawaiian culture. “It acknowledges our place as Hawaii’s airline and underscores the commitment our employees make every day to provide our guests with a gracious and genuine island welcome.”
Also receiving a subtle update is Hawaiian’s logo, which also features Pualani. Pualani remains central to the logo, but she’ll now be “framed” by what Hawaiian says is the likeness of a “rising sun.” Previously, Pualani’s image was framed by a floral-themed background.
Hawaiian Airlines is one of the more exotic and special airlines that I really want to try as and when I get the chance one day!
About Airline PR
This is a special section on Airline Branding, and Airline Public Relations written by me on all the flights I have been fortunate enough to have been on. These are not records taken from somewhere else, but are actual flights I have been on. Most of the flight trips are officially sponsored by the airline companies in order to promote their certain routes, and aircraft. Airline promotion and PR related work in the aviation industry is one of my expertise.
