Airlines Names In Different Writing

Thu Jun 07, 2001 9:57 am

I know that lots of airline all got their Official English names. But why there are not many airlines got their names in their own writing on their a/c or publications (like Arabic, Chinese...etc)?

Worldwide, english is spoken very often. Many people in other countries know english very well, and also many foreign airlines get their revenue from english speaking passengers.

Recall Aeroflot during the soviet days! Even the regestration was in Russian! Personally I respect airlines that have their name written in their official language!

Since 1971, the logo combines the latin and Hebrew littering. The first two letters on the right means "el" in Hebrew

On the latest livery, it's written "Israel Airlines" in both languages on each side of the aircraft. This 744 is called "Jerusalem" (here in Hebrew, appears in English on the other side)

PIA has the logo in Urdu also, which is the national language of Pakistan, FACT: there are more than 30 other languages spoken in the country therefore it does not have a real native tongue, Urdu is actually the language of Muslims from India Smile
.....up there with the best!

It is interesting to hear LOT to be pronounced as [lat] here in the US while, AFAIK, it is not even [lot] but [liot] (with soft "l"), isn't it?

Olympic had all-greek titles only on their DC-3s I think. The greek name is ΟΛΥΜΠΙΑΚΗ ΑΕΡΟΠΟΡΙΑ (Olimbiaki Aeroporia). The greek name can be seen on this DC-3:


The greek name was used on the DC-3 .The DC-4, the DC-6, the Comet 4B, the YS-11, the 707 and all following types afterwards had the englih name because the airline was becoming more and more international. I dont know if the greek name was used on the other side of the aircraft in the early days but most pictures of old aircraft featured the english one.

VARIG means (V)iacao (A)erea (Ri)o-(G)randense, which still uses Portuguese. Of course, the company has incorporated "Brazilian Airlines" into it's name too nowadays.
VASP stands for (V)iacao (A)erea (S)ao (P)aulo
TAM was originally (T)ransportes (A)ereos (M)arilia (Marilia is a small town in interior Sao Paulo,Brazil), but later changed it's name to (T)ransportes (A)ereos (M)ercosul.

My favorite of these airlines is Ethiopian. Their titles are in Latin script as well as Ethiopic. Ethiopic is an ancient script which has been around since the 4th century or so. I find it quite beautiful and so right with the airline livery.

Balkan used to write their name in Latin script on the one side and in Bulgarian(cyrillic) script on the other side on all their liveries up to the actual(ugly) one as the cyrillic writing was dropped

What about JAL and China Airlines and Thai?

JAL don't have Japanese Kanji Characters of "Japan Airlines" anymore.

China Airlines don't have Chinese titles anymore.

Thai only got Thai characters for their nicknames of the plane.
