Blue Air's flying colours

Three winners have emerged in a competition to design a livery for the Blue Air Boeing 737-800 that will be based at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LPL) from the end of this month.

The airline invited the public to submit designs after announcing last October that it was making the airport its newest European base and intended to become “Liverpool’s airline”.

Originally there was to be one winner but Blue Air liked the ideas from three entries and decided to incorporate aspects from each, recognising Liverpool’s strong musical links, its warm welcome and skyline. Both local football clubs are also catered for through the use of blue and red colours.

As well as seeing parts of their designs appear on the aircraft, the three winners of the competition will also each receive two free return flights from Liverpool to any Blue Air destination.

The 189-seat aircraft will operate on Blue Air’s new routes between Liverpool and Alicante, Hamburg, Milan and Rome and once work, now under way to install the livery, is completed.

Chief commercial officer Tudor Constantinescu said: “We are committed to deliver an airline that offers a really local feel and a flavour of the Liverpool area and the livery hopefully reflects this.”
