The new EasyJet livery has been unveiled as a mark of the airlines 20th birthday. The new livery will be replacing the 17-year-old look which first came to the fleet in 1998.
The new livery, as before, features the bright orange color with white. The orange extends from the tail towards the fuselage, which creates a larger place for the EasyJet logo. Because of this, the EasyJet logo is able to be 15% bigger than on the last livery on the tail. The orange then reflects off the other towards the front of the A320/A319’s, just above the cockpit windows. Another EasyJet logo is inside this just above the passenger windows. The engines remain in the bright orange color.
The old EasyJet livery featured the engines, logo, and the tail in bright orange. The big orange logo went across the fuselage with a ‘.com’ at the end advertising the website. There is also a white logo on the tail. These are set to be replaced in 2017 for older aircraft.
“EasyJet’s aircraft livery is one of the most recognized in aviation,” said EasyJet Commercial Director Peter Duffy. “As we approach our 20th birthday in November, we felt a refreshed livery would complement the many changes already made to EasyJet including allocated seating, transparent prices, flexible tickets and our award winning mobile app.”
Currently, EasyJet has a fleet of 226 A319s and A320s with A320neos coming in 2017. Half of this fleet will be flying with the new livery by 2017 with 29 aircraft with it by the end of this year.
“Like EasyJet itself, we wanted our livery to be as relevant for the next 20 years as it has been for the past 20,” said Duffy. “The final design was selected by nearly 4,000 staff and customers.”
