Flybe will be rolling out new livery across all its Bombardier Q400 and Embraer 175 aircraft over the next six years, the first of which elegantly winged its way into the fleet earlier.
Some ten aircraft a year will be re-painted with completion across the entire Flybe fleet scheduled for 2025.
Co-ordinated in line with its existing fleet re-painting and planned maintenance programmes, Flybe’s new white and purple livery will, as a result, be delivered at no extra cost to the business.
It was created and developed by the airline’s own in-house team and features a cleaner, more modern, streamlined design when compared to the existing all-over purple.
In welcoming the first newly liveried aircraft into the fleet, Flybe chief executive, Christine Ourmières-Widener, said: “Today marks a memorable new chapter in our airline’s history.
“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.”
