Hey Guys:

Pulled this off another site, it looks like Garuda is finally changing their color scheme. The first plane to get the new colors is their new A330-200.

Ooh I like that!

Looks promising...! And, though I can't quite understand why, it reminds me a bit of the old Airtours International scheme...

Reminds me a little bit of Air Inter. But just a little bit.

I was thinking AirInter too. I like it, very pleasing to the eye.

I think it's a refreshing, new look. I'm glad they retained the condor or phoenix-looking bird adjacent to the airline name. It preserves their original identity.

Any chance of them re-entering the US market(s)?

Have to admit, not a huge fan.

To me the tail doesn't represent the Garuda bird as much as they tried.

Also - not sure I like the Logotype placement, should be more forward.

Wow. Finally an updated airline color scheme that I actually like. I like the tail colors and the updated wordmark. I am happy to see Garuda retain the bird as well. Nicely done...

I agree; although I love the colors and the graphic style, from a marketing point of view they should have done more with the mystical bird on their tail. When you see the tail you probably won't even recognize it's a Garuda plane (so I'm glad they still use the 'regular' logo on the fuselage). It's not a really strong brand image imo and it's a bit sad it doesn't reflect anything about Indonesia. Other than that; it looks sleek, modern and stylish.

You mean the Garuda?  Wink

I like it, it's a clean, modern update on a pretty classic livery. Have always loved the idea of the Garuda being Indonesia's national airline, given that it plays such a huge role in Balinese mythology. Also love the cool blue color scheme, goes well with Indonesia's beach culture/tourist charm.

No it doesn't. Rather, the tail reflects Indonesia's ocean colors. I really think it is well done. After much anticipation, I have been so let down at most of the updated liveries that the world's airlines have unveiled in recent years. For the most part, they've been very underwhelming. This time, somebody got it right. I think Garuda's new look is clean, cool, refreshing, and striking.

Very nice livery ! I have not flown on GA before and maybe now its the time to fly with them. Hopefully they will occasionally send their A332 to SIN.

Its about time for them to have PTVs. The red covered economy seat will be re-done with blue fabric. I cant wait to fly on this bird.

Garuda

Well always wondered since Garuda Indonesia is the only one that depicts the Garuda more of a pure bird, while the Garuda in other countries have the additional resemblence of a mans body, such as India and Thailand. You see the Man Bird Garuda on Thai government buildings

Lets hope that with new a/c, new livery and the long awaited PTV we will see GA lifting out of the doldrums after such a prolonged decline internationally. They have a long, long way to go to catch up with the other SE Asian flag carriers but so long as they can escape political interference in their corporate affairs I see light at the end of the tunnel.

Now all we need is for the Indonesian civil aviation inspectorate to join the 21st century...
