Hi everybody,

seen at XFW (Finkenwerder Airbus plant) was the first Airbus A319-132 (c/n 1727, D-AVWR, will become 5B-DBO) for Cyprus Airways in green primer colours with dark blue engines and a new white logo on a dark blue tail.

The aircraft is currently in the paintshop, so I hope some photos will be posted when the whole livery is revealed.

The new livery is neat but very characterless/inspireless. Missing chance.

Clean image . . . nothing to gloat about. Not one that would stand out from a tarmac full of other Eurowhites.

A dash of gold (from its past livery) or a flash of Mediterranean sun would have injected that much life into this livery.

Perhaps Air Orange could show Cyprus Airways how they have missed a golden opportunity (no pun intended).

Yes, like Air Orange/Norbert said, it's a missed chance!

Neither a strong logo (like Swiss) nor a great paintsheme.

Sad thing :-(

It is nice, but it has that missing 'inpiration' which stands out very much. I prefer the present one.

It looks very average. The Syrian scheme springs to mind.

The Syrian livery was designed the Airbus intern livery department .. seems as the Cyprus CID is from the same source.

I'm aware that Boeing and Airbus have there own design departments. I would pledge that they stay at their core buisiness (and that is plane manufacturing) as airline branding is a totally different profession.... Years ago I have myself offered to them as a freelance designer. As they want to protect their own "shop" in a shop they do not work with independent subcontractors as they are afraid that such freelancers also design for competition manufacturers....shame... but nevertheless I go my own way...no problem.

If you feel the need to express your emotions contact the marketing department of Cyprus Airways. I think they deserve to hear and to see you honest feelings about the new livery. Perhaps they will reconcider their choice...or not. Save Cyprus Airways, mail to:

It is amazing what can be accomplised when nobody takes the credit

We developed some contra designs which are shown here via this link http://www.webstudio.nl/liladesign/airlinesfreework/view.nhtml?profile=airlinesfreework&UID=10002

We kept the new logo though we deleted the word "airways" as it is obvious clear that it is an airline. Mentioning airways on stationary aslike buildings, letterheads, business cards, flags, ground vehicles, tickets etc. etc. is a neccessity. We added some typical "former Cyprus Airways"-elements like coulors and layout.

Thanks and happy Easter to you all, we are off line now. Olympic, thank you for passing through the link to Cyprus. We've already send Cyprus Airways' CEO an e-mail with our deepest concerns about their new livery, leaving the extra ordinary previous one behind...pitty, pitty!

25 Post contains images Kenny : @Air Orange Much better then the "real" new one
26 Post contains images Olympic : Hopefully Mr Loizides will read your mail! I`m really interested what my colleagues think about the new livery and about yours. Happy easter to you. O
27 Air Orange : Thanks and indeed your Easter is month later, sorry. It is the Orthodox version isn't it? Anyway have a good weekend.
28 Olympic : Yes! It is the orthodox "version" A good weekend at the airport. Hope DBD is coming to FRA so i can see the new livery in real.
29 CV990 : Hi! It seems that more and more the airline liveries are getting so broke and without imagination that I almost "cry"! The Cyprus one is the good exm
