I've noticed that, contrary to most European Airlines, no German airlines that I know of (Lufthansa, LTU, German Wings, Eurowings, etc.) display the EU flag along with the national flag. I just seemed odd to me; especially seeing that along with France Germany forms the EU backbone and muscle. Not reallyan interetsing or huge post, but if anyone else has some input/information I would appreciate it.

Actually the Spanish airlines don't do it also. The only airlines that I've seen displaying the flag are Air France and Virgin Express.


nice and spacious airports in need of new airlines and flights... GUA or FRS anyone?... anyone at all?

Austrian is displaying the European flag as well. AF use it more as a design element.

Good question, though.

The European Commission said:
"The Commission shares the view that the Union's logo, i.e the flag with yellow stars, helps in a positive manner and in many different contexts to make the European identity known throughout the world. The Commission is therefore pleased to see a number of airlines displaying the logo on their aircraft.
However, the Commission does not take the view that the use of the Union's logo by European airlines should be made compulsory.
Moreover, the use of the logo is in all cases subject to prior authorisation in accordance with the agreement concluded between the European Community and the Council of Europe which is the legal owner of the logo.

Solnabo: Since Norway is not part of the EU, putting the flag on SAS planes would probably not be a good idea. Or maybe they can put 2/3 of the flag on there  Big grin

Reunion Island is a French Overseas Departement, so fully part of the EU !!!

Here in Finland Finnair uses the flag of Finland and EU on their planes... But Finncomm airlines and Air Finland don't use them. Blue1, subsidiary of SAS has only the finnish flag painted on their aircrafts.

Like EUSWISS wrote, the usage of flags isn't compulsory... My personal opinion is that it is good to see both flags just next to register. For an average passenger it might be difficult to understand from what country some airline is, so maybe small flags will give some tips to them...  Smile

FINNAIR (both flags)
