Well, I don't like it, but this was expected since Copa bought Aerorepublica.

YUCK!!!!!

As Fede said no big surprise.....At least the Aerorepublica tittle remained (can't imagine how much time).

Really don't like it but no other option where possible.....

OH YEAH, love it!

Nearly a screw driver tail cone CO MD-80 living again...not many of those in the first place.

Better yet, love the KLD 737 behind it...he who shot it-what's the reg. of that tasty treat?

It is funny that you say : A-LA-COPA, since we all know, Copa's livery was inspired by Continental!

IIRC, CO owns 51% of CM. Hence the similar liveries. I enjoy the new AeroRepublica livery, as it is a carbon copy of Copa's. Not original, but classy.

CO no longer owns the 49% of CM. The Panamanian owners have the 51%, about 35% is traded on the NYSE and the rest is what now belongs to CO.

About the new livery, total lack of imagination from CM.
I was expected the same livery but with the Colombian flag colours.

Boy, what a boring c/s!!!.... I also say a BIG YUCK!!!! that livery is too played out.... it's 3 AIRLINES with practically the same look.... but it was a given that CM would just use their CO inherited livery in AeroRepublica.... It's kinda of funny how each one is "affiliated" to the other.... "AeroRepublica affiliated to Copa", and "Copa affiliated to Continental".... I wonder if Copa will do to AeroRepublica what CO did to Copa... use it for a few years, get it going, then sell it's stakes thus making lots of money....

Anyways, this MD80, like someone mentioned, reminds us all of the old CO MD-80s they had... I just wished CM would have done something more original for AeroRepublica... final verdict: this livery for AeroRepublica STINKS!!!

I actually like it, it looks professional and business-like, much like CO. Is P5 aiming to lure the biz traveler?

And now, let the speculation begin: When will CM and P5 join SkyTeam?

I belive sometime before CM tookover P5, P5 did have some rights to fly a route between Colombia and U.S.A., maybe BAQ-MIA (?). Now is up to the Colombia-U.S.A. bilateral to see if it's possible for P5 to fly to an U.S. destination.
Does any (Colombian) Forum member knows if the Colombia-U.S.A. bilateral allows open skies between ADZ/CTG and selected U.S. airports?
I think P5 E190 most likely will have the range to fly between BAQ/CTG/ADZ and MIA/FLL/TPA/MCO; but those aircrafts were ordered economy class cabin only by CM.

Chiguire, I asked above and have yet to see an answer.
The colors are that of KLD, KaliningradAvia, of Russia. Their first planes were from Aer Lingus or United, if I remember right, so this one's a bit interesting.

Terrible, terrible paintscheme. I've never liked Copa's CO-style logo, don't like the colors. I wouldn't even call this a "paintscheme".

Just another plain plane, and Latin American paintschemes get yet even MORE boring..

The Kaliningrad Avia, now that's one of the few new liveries that are absolutely sharp and cool. That's a livery!

I personally can't care less to see another plain Continental plane in Miami, Orlando or wherever they fly to.

So now we have 3 airlines in the boring Continental livery. Great..

What route is the KLD 737 taking on delivery anyone in Costa Rica know?

They have MIA-BAQ route authority.

34 2travel2know : Only by changing the white stripes to red will make the logo have all the Colombian flag colours.
35 RCS763AV : Its very boring. But, well, its company standarization. I knew it would look like this.
