airBaltic Revised Livery?

Wed Dec 04, 2019 7:56 pm

airBaltic posted on Facebook a set of pictures and the caption:

What is the story behind airBaltic new Airbus A220-300 livery? The greener tails emphasize our commitment to becoming a more sustainable airline operating one of the greenest fleets and launching other sustainability initiatives in the near future. Think green - fly green!

Is the change permanent or is it a one-off to promote their sustainability commitment?

The caption sounds permanent to me. Not different enough to be a special livery imo

I think it's permanent, it's been painted onto the newest one just delivered from YMX as well as the first A220, YL-CSA. There's nothing in the actual livery to indicate it's just a sustainably committment (and it does look remarkably cleaner than the current one!) and seeing as it's such a minor evolution of the current one I'd assume this is the permanent new livery.

Are they only selling one livery at the moment? Lufthansa and a few other airlines now have that same tail livery just different colours.

Be that as it may, it somehow looks much better for Air Baltic than it does for Lufthansa.
For one thing, Air Baltic is a bit of a low-cost carrier, of sorts; Lufthansa is a full service carrier with a megacheap paint job.
Ditto Austrian.
And I'm not quite sold on new SAS yet, either.
