This aircraft, Air Holland PH-AHF, is going for a C-check for the next coming 5 weeks. In the last week of that check the aircraft will get a brandnew logo and brandnew livery design. I will keep you informed!

So aircraft get repainted during C check? one of PIA's 747-300s just had their first such checking in Pakistan, till last year they were done in Hong Kong by Cathay Pacific so I wonder if they're going to be repainted in PK's full livery? cant wait to see the new Air Holland scheme

I guess Air Holland just seizes the occasion that the 757 is going for C-check anyway. Repainting an aircraft with every C-check is not usual, how often do you make a C-check, not sure but I think every ~2 years. I even saw a program on TV about a D-check(!) of a Lufthansa 744, which didn't get a full re-paint due to the fact that LH was in need of that aircraft. It is going to get a full re-paint later this year.
That 757 pictured really reminds me of El Al/Arkia, which also fly their 757s all white very often.

How are you doing. I'm fine but quiet busy. I'm worrying about you due to the situation in your region. Hopefully it will not turn into a big war. I'll keep in touch with you, definitely!! Did you managed to get PIA excited about your aluminium coloured livery idea?
Well Airmale and Others, Air Holland restarted it services a while ago. The above pictured white PH-AHF flew for a while within the Martinair fleet but due to bad results Martinair returned the aircraft to Air Holland. Air Holland is coming back again and is profiting of falling results of KLM and Martinair. Air Holland flew a good summer season and also the winter programm is well filled. The airline flies at the moment 2 B752's and the company is expecting to add a third a/c this winter. That could be a B767.
I'm sorry, I cannot yet unveil more details about the brand new image of Air Holland.

Hi Air Orange,
Im OK, and yes were all a bit disturbed by the developments in our part of the world, hope nothing happens. Regarding the Silver livery, No! I havent even mentioned the idea to PIA, was hoping you would since youre a designer with your own firm and all, but I did mail the airlines MD requesting him to have all of the aircraft painted in the full PIA livery so they can have a uniform look as the present incomplete scheme being worn by many of PIA's own planes besides the 747-300s is casting a really bad impression of the airline adding to their already tarnished image
