N754pr, sorry, seems it's too late to go back... first Airbus 320 in new colors landed in ZAG yesterday... and yes, it's not far from JAT. We are neighbours, anyway....

If they changed titles to billboard this might have been something but like that.

Boring ! Presumably by the same chap who designed the new JAT colours. Why are these airlines all trying to keep their aircraft as white as possible ?

I like the tail design, but I don't like the titles - they seem too formal in comparison to the lively and informal tail design.

I am shocked and disturbed!!

I can hardly believe that Croatia Airlines changed the colors into this, well, crap! ... I mean first JAT comes out with these new dots (or simply traffic lights) now Croatia has new squares, what are they racing which airline will have less interesting colourscheme?! It certainly looks like that. Oh my God... I have a feeling these airlines will never learn!

I think old colors were kind of nice, blue stood up for the sea, and now when planes are all white - standing for what!? I don't get it. I thought only JAT was silly enough to go for such an image, but apparently not the only one.

By the way, I had no idea that Croatia Airlines was planning livery change, or corporate image change!? Apparently they have changed the tail design and removed blue belly from the airplanes, but the logo remained the same!? What is that!? Image change!?

I wish they did something else, or simply waited.

This is a disaster. It is a very ugly livery. Croatia is a small country and needs a good looking national airline. I think they will damage their good image if they use this.

Can you imagine a JAT airays 737 and a Croatia airlines a320 next to each other, they will look like they come from the same parent airline. Croats and Serbs won't like that!

Looks like the airplane is on short term lease!!!!

Looks very unfinished surely bold billboard titles would have been a little better.
where do you take the corporate i.d from that???very poor

Eventhough you can't see it clearly from the attached photo, it looks like blue belly stays...
Croatia is not changing anything except the tail on their aircrafts.
It's not that I like it, but there is quite a difference if you compare it with JAT.
I agree that the girl who designed it (Ivana Ivankovic, corporate designer, hopefully unemployed soon...) needs some more imagination.

Sure, not the most imaginative in the world, but not a complete disaster. I do agree that as a small country, Croatia probably needs a bit more prominence. This doesn't help, but it's not unattractive.

Not bad, but there's hardly a massive change is there? Tail looks nice, everything else looks nearly the same.

Blah. I like the older livery better. The tail doesn't seem all that imaginative. If it were something more profound, then it would make the rest of the body not so plain looking.

I do not find it so horrible but it would have looked a lot nicer if the whole fuselage was painted in the same way as the tale, like the Croatian national football-teams shirts. Or my imagination is sick  Insane

It looks very similar to the new JAT livery, they would of been the same if they used billboard style lettering for the 'CROATIA' titles. I'm sorry to say that the tail now looks a little bare. They should of made the squares larger.

I think that the new livery looks unfinished but I guess it is not too bad. I mush rather see the old livery in stead. I hope to fly Croatia AIrlines this summer. FRA-SPU, BWK-ZAG and ZAG-FRA.

Oh, I dunno... I don't think it's all that bad. Kinda like it, actually. Just wished the painted the engine cowling white... Maybe with the same checker-board design as on the tail.
Anyway, I'm sure there's a good reason for the mainly white fuselage liveries so many airlines are adopting.

Well done Croatia Airlines! It draws inspiration from the previous livery and is, of course, an improvement. I do think, however, that the titles should be in lower case, except the C (ie saying Croatia and not CROATIA) and in the billboard style.

But I like it.

The new Croatia Airlines livery is dissapointing, not to mention that the tail does not match with the body. In any event, the new Croatia Airlines concept has striking similarities with JAT. Squares versus dots. This is bound to stir up some humor amongst aviators in the region.

Had I not known any better, I would think that both airlines come from the same country.  Nuts

One interesting thing that a fellow colleague pointed out: isn't it strange that Croatia Airlines and JAT both introduced these new liveries on aircraft who's registration ends in the letter J ?

Cheers

Two ATR's are comming with new livery these days, and two more Airbuses from Shannon after the maintenance, and the rest of the fleet will be repainted in ZAG... probably this year...

Do you think the Croatian public will like the new colours?
I don't think they will like it. Croatia Ailrines was the darling of Franjo Tudjman (late Croatian president) and it is a big Croatian company.

thank God, the guy you are mentioning is dead.

Croatia Airlines is not supposed to be anybody's darling anymore. Good ones should survive. Market decides.
