Depends on the particular airline and how they're doing financially.
Not often enough for some!

it depends on whether the brand image is good or not...

United's been averaging every 20 years. That means their current one is half through its life cycle (if the trend continues). Though, the flying U has been the corporate logo since 1974.

Qantas has had their dull elongated kangaroo look since 1984 designed by an Australain design company based in sydney. Hopefully this livery would kindly die off for us in the next few years.

Sabena 2 X In 10 Years. Amazing!

Tue Jan 29, 2002 1:01 am

Unbelievable but they did it; Sabena restyled its livery twice within 10 years (from blue window line to baby blue overall fuselage logo to ribboned S tailfin logo); not only the livery but every detail of its corporate identity was changed. Just only for the ground vehicles it was already a cost of 2 x 2 million euros. JUST A-MA-ZING!

and KLM has the same livery since the late 70's, with some very little changes, any chance they will replace it within a few years???

well, Sabena was a rich and efficient airline...

Sometimes there are very bad changes...I really miss El-Al's previous livery, introduced in 1971.

I would say that you can't say when they do change their liveries... It always depends on the situation the airlines are in. I'll take Qantas and Air France who both have had their liveries for a long time now but they still look "up-to-date" (which doesn't mean that everybody likes them...) so they probably don't seem to see the need for a change or take Delta Air Lines, they had one livery for 30 years or so and then decided back in 1997 to change it and two years later they again decided to change it to DeltaFlot as it is today. So it can happen that we will see a new Delta livery in a year or two or in 30 years...
But if a certain livery gives a bad image to the airline because of relating to a chrash or so then sometimes airlines use the tool of changing it too.
US Air is the best exampel. After they called themselves US Airways and changed the livery nobody remembered the chrashes of the 737's (neither did the 737 fleet since none chrashed after that) and their image was good from then on... And I love their A330's!!! (FRA-PIT and PHL-FRA back in 2000 and 2001)

Ailines have a tendancy to change their livery when a new type of aircraft on a new route is introduced which has significance eg bmi changed when they opened A330-200 services to America. The A330 would have looked awful in the old livery!
