Flybe have unveiled a brand new livery for its Bombardier Q400 and Embraer 175 aircraft, estimating that it will take around six years to have the new livery applied across its fleet with 10 aircraft per year set to be re-painted.
Currently Flybe planes mostly have an all-over purple look but this will be replaced with a “cleaner, more modern, streamlined design” that was created and developed in-house.
“Today marks a memorable new chapter in our airline’s history” said Flybe CEO, Christine Ourmières-Widener, at the unveiling.
“To date, almost every part of our business has been touched by our ‘Close to You’ brand refresh and so refreshing our aircraft livery plays a significant part of strengthening that positioning as well as being an integral part of the ongoing programme to reinvigorate our fleet.
“The best part is that, by careful planning, we will achieve this at no additional cost to the business.”
