Here are the first pictures of the first A320 for Clickair.

This is how it looked like, it's EC-GRF (named Montseny) flying for Iberia since 1991 (first as EC-FBQ)

Looks alrightish. -GRF is one of the original order of A320 from the early 1990's. isn't it?

3 halves? You must be using the new math Big grin
I think it looks alright, but like express says we won't know for sure till we see it outside.

Good to see something different, the livery reminds me of Air Dolomiti.

EC-GRF was the second A320 delivered to IB (10.01.1991), originally registered EC-576 and later EC-FBQ.

I like the colour scheme a lot. I'd love to see them come to CWL at some point in the future.

Great Colour scheme, shame there seems to be more green on the hangar floor than on the aircraft though  Wink

If the A320s could be painted in bare metal this would be a beauty. Still, I like this livery how it is right now.

When will airlines get creative and use names that aren't Air-______ or _____-Air/Airlines??

It just seems like when a new airline comes along they pick a random word and put "air" before or after that word... Clickair?

I can probably count on one hand the names of airlines that have thought of something out of the norm

I thought airlines had to have some reference in their name along the lines of air/fly/airlines/aviation??

I'm surprised Mexicana hasn't raised a fuss over the name since they had it first. I know I know, different country, continent and wording. But still. Not very imaginitive I agree. It could be worse, it could be "Viva! Aerobus".

It seems to be what happens to aircraft that are new to the Spanish register. I once flew on an Air Europa B733 which was registered EC-262. It didn't carry that registration for very long - no more than a few weeks after it was delivered to AEA.

This airline will start operations with three aircrafts, apparently with EC-GRE, EC-GRF and EC-GRH, all of them delivered to Iberia in 1991.

According to this article in Spanish newspaper El Pais (in Spanish):

http://www.elpais.es/articulo/econom...elpporeco/20060905elpepieco_8/Tes/

Clickair will start selling tickets on Thursday (Sept. 7) and will start operations on the 29th of October.

First destinations will be (all from Barcelona): Valencia, Bilbao, Malaga, Sevilla, Amsterdam, Dublin, Geneva, Zurich, Prague, Lisbon, Porto and Moscow. However, the launch of some of these destinations could be delayed.

It's still unknown which company will do the handling for Clickair in Barcelona (because Iberia Handling lost the concession for this airport).

Clickair, as many other LCCs already do, will try to increse the use of each aircraft (compared to Iberia), therefore it will have up to five crews for each aircraft (instead of three that are common in Iberia).

Well, and concerning the interior of these aicrafts (this is not mentioned in the article), they will probably be very similar to Iberia. Seat covers may be changed and business class would be removed.

25 Post contains images IberiaA319 : That picture was on Clickair's website until today, with the wrong Airbus A300. Now it has been changed and an A320 is being showed instead!! See:
26 RootsAir : If you check out the A320 it has the A300 wingtip fences !
27 Lovinitflyboy : Looks good, but not on the A300! but then i was never a fan of that aircraft, nothing looks good on it or the A310.
28 Stirling : Great Looking airplane. Boring Name. Might as well have called it "Airline Airways", or "Air Airlines", or something just as original...
29 RICARIZA : nice livery..! I like it!
