Long before Salzburg Airport had the clever idea to create eye-catchers by changing the last syllable of words from "-er" into "-air" (aufsteigair for steps, einweisair for follow-me car, enteisair for de-icing truck…), the Norwegian airline Partnair used exactly the same method to create a flashy company name. This is yet another scan from loads and loads of prints in my collection: expect to see more in the months ahead! And thanks a lot to Klaus Giesriegl for lending me a hand with the flatbed scanner.

What a stunning phoneme this airline used to distinguish themselves from other companies - a great idea to play around in the linguistics branch between all those inflectional endings... ;-)
three green on the flatbed scanner!
