Photos: Alaska Shows Off a Refreshed Look

Earlier this week, an Alaska Airlines employee posted a photo of what appeared to be a 737 with a refreshed livery on Instagram.

Today, the airline itself posted photos of the aircraft, N549AS, with the refreshed livery on their Facebook page.

With the exception of the winglets, the refreshed livery’s features may be difficult to notice. In the design, one may notice that the primary stripe and logo have been updated to Navy blue, as opposed to the dark blue on the current livery. Also, the secondary stripe has been updated with a vibrant green instead of teal.

In addition, one may notice that the “Alaska” word-mark is modernized. While the Eskimo on the tail is unchanged, the secondary color that originally outlined the tail design is gone.

Finally, the most noticeable feature within Alaska’s refreshed look are the winglets. The winglets themselves have been designed with a “windswept” look, featuring a vibrant green.

As of now, it does not appear that Alaska will be devoting specific time to painting their aircraft in the refreshed look. When the aircraft are due for a fresh coat of paint, according to the airline, they will receive the new look.
