I really like the tails on the new Azores aircraft. Something about that mosaic whale is clean and modern but not boring, and the design applied to the winglets is a nice touch. The giant QR code on the side is neat. Honestly surprised we haven't seen it before... the next generation instead of web addresses! Overall interesting for, i wonder if this is a special one-off or will be applied to all the A321 fleet.
Airports: BOS, JAX, JFK, EWR, LGA, CVG, ATL, CLT, DCA, IAD, STT, PVD, ALB, MCO
Aircraft: 733, 735, 73G, 738, 752, 717, A319, A320, MD-88, E190, E175, E145, CRJ-200, CRJ-700, Q400
Airlines: B6, CO, DL, US, NW, WN, DH
...a good start but a long way to go!

QR codes were a fad half a decade ago that never caught on. Does anybody actually use them? Weird to paint a livery with a technology humans can't read and nobody uses on their phone. Waste of space.

So the words read: "Breathe. That's the feeling when you visit Azores"
Perhaps the QR code is meant to lead passengers to some sort of tourist website?
In any case, it seems like a special livery.

The position of the whale's tail on the vertical fin bother's me, resembles an airplane crashing, nose-first, into the ground. Otherwise I like it!! Just don't ever fly them unless you have a couple of extra days to spend sleeping in Ponta Delgada airport due to their frequent delays and cancellations.

Yup people will do just what I did. Use their QR code scanners on their phones. Voila! They'll be able to see the impact it has by the number of scans. Would like to see how it turns out.

I give them credit for trying, but QR codes aren't a thing anyone really uses. I know the new iOS has a built-in QR scanner in the iPhone, so we'll see, but I just don't see the practicality

I'm going to venture a guess and that those puzzled or stating the use of a QR code is dumb aren't working in tech or marketing.

But please, continue with the expertise.

I don't think anyone thinks they don't have purpose, just that people aren't going to whip out their phones and scan the airplane as it's taxiing in or stop by the gate and scan the airplane if they can get the right angle.

Hey guys,
As a 'one off' colour scheme it's eye catching and interesting....
As a 'standard' colour scheme it's awful....
I don't mind the 'whale' on the previous scheme but it does look ridiculous on he tail of this plane. I can see what one poster above says that it looks like a plane crashing, or at least one in a spiralling dive!
Cheers,
Bunumuring.
PS: QR codes are great, and often seen in Australia. I don't know how many people actually use hem however.

Clever use of the QR code. It may seem a bit odd to some, but the alternative of having a web address emblazoned across the entire fuselage looks tacky.

Also I do hope the blue around the doors is just tape after being painted, otherwise it would look a bit weird.

The newly renovated staff canteen restaurant at work has these. In fact to order it is mandatory that you scan the code on your table, then you can access the menu. You choose what you want to eat, order your food on the phone too. If you don't have a code reader you eat elsewhere I guess!

Seriously guys, it's awful. As a livery applied to the flowing lines of a beautiful jetliner it's ghastly. Let's be serious and show some respect for the elegant lines of that poor bird!

I'm willing to bet that this is just a special scheme and not a true replacement to what they currently have.

Hey guys,
I've done an admittedly quick check of the photo database and I believe that this is the first external use of a QR code on a commercial airliner...
Would that be correct?

Simply awful. :roll: I'm not sure this is even a new livery, maybe just another special one.
The problem with the Azores livery is that most people don't actually know which one is it, me included... :lol: Since they have so many different liveries in various aircraft, its really hard for them to maintain a brand image. But then, again, that is all about the company's strategy: have no strategy at all! :banghead:

I hope this is just a one-off "celebrating" their first A321neo.

I suppose the SATA turboprops will continue to have the blue livery with the bird, while the single A332 and A321neos will have the green livery with the whale tail (and the whale picture all over the fuselage). The A310s are on their way out, so those really don't matter anymore. I just don't know if their A320s should be repainted from blue (bird) to green (whale). To me, the dual branding SATA-Azores Airlines is a bit confusing, especially because you would think that SATA is the regional inter-island biz while Azores is the mainline fleet biz, but no... just look at their A320s flying to FRA, LON, LIS, OPO...
Upcoming flights:
April/May: AM MEX-SCL 788 (J), AM EZE-MEX 789 (J).

Why can't they simply stick to this livery?!



Elegant, fresh, colorful... way better than these new "whale" designs they've been showing lately.
I wonder when people will understand:
Embraer 190 or simply E190, not ERJ-190. E-Jets are NOT ERJs!
Boeing 747-8, not Boeing 747-800. Same goes for 787.
Airbus A320, not Airbus 320.
Airbii does not exist.

I think that's where some of the criticism might be coming from. The blue lines aren't part of the actual livery. Just tape covering all the edges of panels, and should be removed.

It's still a bit bizarre however...

Actually, it is very simple. SATA is the regional carrier operating exclusively flights between the islands on Q200/400 turboprops, while Azores airlines is the mainline carrier operating flights to North America and Europe including continental Portugal on the A310/320/330 fleet.

That's the old livery, actually, currently present on all turboprops of SATA (the regional branch) and half of the jets of Azores. The newest one is that with the green whale on the tale, which seems to be more or less kept on the new A321neo apart for the ridiculous additions of the QR code and 'Breathe' mention on the frame. Except that the whale is now blue instead of green... it's a little confusing! :shock: :lol:

I love this attitude - tech and marketing "experts" insisting on a product that actual consumers have long since shunned or barely anyone cares about. The market has spoken and I'm pretty sure QR codes a niche product at best, kinda like minidiscs - never caught on. But when it fails, the tech and marketing "experts" are dumbfounded.

I wouldn't even know how to scan a QR code on my phone and I can't be bothered learning.

As to the livery... even for a one-off special livery, it's pretty terrible. Total mess with original identity clumsily kept on but barely recognisable. I'd say this airline has a host of branding issues to deal with. And operational and service quality, judging by some of the trip reports.

I think this is the basis of a very interesting livery. It isn't quite "there" yet, but I'd love to see it with a couple of adjustments - "breather" slightly smaller and shifted a tad to the left so that it doesn't bang up against (what I assume to be) the barcode, for example.

Does anyone know who designed this?

You've obviously never been to China. Google WeChat pay and Alipay.

Although I agree there's not much point of a big QR code on a plane.

Well, actually it is not. From a purely visual perspective, it is not easy to understand the difference between SATA and Azores Airlines given that many A320s and all the A310s are blue-liveried, SATA-branded. That was my point from the very beginning.

I like this livery even better than the first.

I think too many folk are taking the barcode too literally. I doubt it is intended that many people use it, simply that you could - that the airline has the ability and if you want to go tech, you can.

Lack of local certification, the process was apparently only finished yesterday.
First flight is programmed for February 2nd, LIS-PDL-LIS, but it may still change.

Have you ever flown this airline to judge the experience for yourself? I booked a day trip back in November 2016 specifically to fly in the A310. My routing was YYZ-PDL-YYZ. Night departure from YYZ arriving PDL at dawn. I watched planes / birded around the airport for several hours then took a taxi to the hotel I'd booked for the afternoon so I could at least get a hot shower. The taxi driver showed back up to the hotel on time to get me back to the airport for the afternoon flight (same aircraft...didn't move during the day) back to YYZ...arrived well after dark. Both flights operated on the advertised.

I sat in the very back row on the flight to PDL and the 2nd to back row back to YYZ. Personally, I had a nice experience on the trip. Apparently others haven't been so lucky. I'm glad I have a couple flights on one of their A310s in my log.

Personal mini-reports can be found here:

That's cool...thanks for replying. I first visited BOS in 1980 when TAP had 707s flying there...and the observation deck below the control tower cab was open to the public. Great views from up there!

Re: New Azores Airlines livery

Wed Jan 24, 2018 4:36 pm

I flew this airline in May YYZ-PDL-LPA LPA-PDL-YYZ . total disaster, three days of delays going ( i'll spare the details ) and a 24 hour delay, slept on the floor of PDL, back to YYZ in addition they had to charter a HiFly A330 to get us back to YYZ. Still working on getting compensation based on EU rules. Never ever again! As far as the livery, much prefer the SATA one over the whale, as mentioned earlier, the whale tail resembles a plane heading nose-first into the ground.
