Etihad Regional (Darwin Airlines) New Livery?

Tue Nov 22, 2016 10:48 pm

Etihad Regional will introduce Dash-8 to replace aging SAAB-2000.

So you think they will introduce a revised livery? The new Etihad "cubes" livery would look nice with a touch of red and white to remember the Swiss flag.

Any thoughts?

It seems unlikely that they would bring in new planes with an old, replaced livery
AS350, B733/4/7/8, B744/8, B762/3, B77E/L/W, B789, A319, A320, A321, A332, A346, A380, AT73/5/6, Q300, Q400, CR2/7, E190, S340, B1900C/D, E110 (E for epic)
NZ, EK, QF, SQ, UA, US, CO, FZ, FR, U2, BA, VA, VS, MH, EI, EY, LH, EN, NM, TG, GZ

I don't think so, maybe this livery would only remain between Etihad and Darwin Airline.
But maybe Darwin would remain its livery with Etihad CS. So that's why EY brought Darwin by 2013 or 2014 maybe in its revised livery.
The best plane I've flown is an A380. They were the biggest and the best than other plane I've been on. :lol:

Somewhat off-topic, but does anyone know how/why the name Darwin came into use for this airline? I've been unable to find this explained in Internet searches.

Because the airlines it's still named Darwin Airlines. It's actually Etihad Regional operated by Darwin Airlines. They kept the name for legal purposes.

They still have an ATR, you're correct! Somehow I think they may considering buying more ATR planes rather than buying Dash 8 planes. Because I think ATR would be easy to replace their Saab fleet if possible.

While you are absolutely correct, I think he may have been wondering about the origin of the name Darwin Airline (singular, not plural) itself, not why it's still being used now :)

Back when they started operations (2003?), I seem to remember them touting something about the "evolution of air travel". This interview with their CCO published by anna.aero a decade later appears to confirm that: http://www.anna.aero/2013/05/23/darwin- ... t-uk-base/

Quote:
Christian Schneider (CS): The name Darwin Airline refers to the element of Charles Darwin that the most adaptable species (or business model) will survive, or be sustainable. The founders of Darwin Airline took this as their spirit, after Swissair and Crossair merged and as a consequence the regional network in Switzerland was significantly reduced. The founders decided to name it singular as most airlines have just one airline, even though they regard themselves as plural

Also, in keeping with the overall theme, their inflight magazine is still called "evolution".

Dash has been confirmed as Saab replacement:

Plus there are recurring pilots and FAs with Dash qualifications.

I don't know if the ATRs will stay. I don't see the point of having two machines for such a small fleet.

Thank you very much for the background information about the name Darwin Airline and its publication "Evolution." I am constantly amazed by the depth of knowledge of a.netters and how much I learn here.

For about 5 years I designed and operated a website called "Darwiniana," that dealt in all aspects of biological evolution. I stopped work on it in 2003 just as the airline was forming, and never heard about the company's magazine which launched in 2011. That website is still hosted at the International Wildlife Museum in Tucson, Arizona, but is no longer being kept current with the advances in science. http://darwiniana.org/
