Icelandair, the country’s flag carrier, has debuted a new livery on its three Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. This is the first time the airline’s livery design has changed since 2006.
By the end of February 2022, the airline aims to have five Boeing 737 MAXs in new livery as part of its rebranding.
Icelandair’s planes will be painted in five distinct hues to depict “various phenomena in Icelandic nature”: boreal blue, magenta, sky blue, yellow, and green.
In mid-January 2022, the airline’s first Boeing 737 MAX 8, registered as TF-ICE, was repainted in new colors. On January 28, 2022, the aircraft arrived at Keflavik International Airport (KEF) from a painting facility in Norwich, United Kingdom. The first to arrive is dressed in a sky-blue tail.
“By extending our color palette, we have a chance to bring the vibrant Icelandic spirit to the world, and to show the world the diversity of our people: The Icelandic spirit is available to anyone and everyone who wants to share in it,” according to the airline’s statement.
