Last month we reported that there was news that Icelandair was set to introduce a new livery.
Now, the first aircraft has been painted and delivered to the airline’s Keflavik base.
The livery, which will feature a range of different colours across the airline’s fleet, is inspired by colours “drawn from Icelandic nature, including the beloved northern lights.”
The current Icelandair livery was introduced in 2006, and has included a number of popular special schemes. However, the airline comments: “Over the past year or so, we’ve been looking at our brand as a whole and finding new, refreshing ways to bring the spirit of Iceland to the world.”
First Painted Aircraft
The first aircraft to be painted in the new livery (the sky blue colour, at least), is Boeing 737 MAX 8 TF-ICE, named Jökulsárlón (after Iceland’s famous glacier lagoon).
It was painted at Norwich, UK, and delivered to Iceland on 28th January.
A further four 737 MAX aircraft will have the new scheme applied by the end of February. Other colours will include boreal blue, magenta, sky blue, yellow, and green.
TF-ICE has already entered service, so you should see the new livery at an airport near you soon!
