Airlines Flybe reveals new livery
- Flybe Facebook
The Exeter-based regional carrier Flybe has revealed a new livery and logo on its Facebook channel.
Flybe is the largest independent regional airline in Europe. Since 2014, their Bombardier Q400 and Embraer aircraft shine from afar in bright purple. Four years later, the carrier has now announced on its Facebook page that the livery will be changed to a plain design.
The new design was developed by the airlines’ in-house team and should emphasize the passion for connecting regional communities.
Flybe’s fleet consists of 54 Bombardier Dash Q400, eleven Embraer E175, six Embraer E195 and five ATR72-600, which are operated for Scandinavian Airlines. The new livery will be rolled out in line with the aircraft’s current repainting schedule, with around 10 aircraft each year getting the livery. With a fleet of over 60 aircraft, the entire livery change will take approximately six years.
Flybe operates flights from several bases in the UK and Düsseldorf in Germany. According to its website, the airline carries over 8 million passengers a year between 81 airports in Europe with over 210 routes across 15 countries.
More and more airlines are adapting their livery. Colorful and elaborate paintings disappear and are replaced by liveries with a higher proportion of white. This facilitates the leasing and reduces costs.
