Cyprus Airways, the national carrier of Cyprus, recently unveiled an updated livery for its two new Airbus A320 aircraft as part of its re-positioning and new strategic plan launched earlier this year.
Two additional new Airbus A320 aircraft are expected to join the fleet early next year that will also carry this new livery.
“With our revisited brand identity, we are ideally positioned to become the ambassador of choice and showcase the very best Cyprus can offer,” said Cyprus Airways CEO Paul Sies, adding that “it also shows the future face of the airline, driven by ambition of a team ready for the future, connecting Cyprus strategically to drive economic development and growth for the country.”
The new branding develops the green olive branch, part of the Cypriot flag, on the airline’s tail fin with the text ‘Cyprus Airways’ emblazoned across the side of the aircraft making sure the Cyprus brand is seen throughout Europe and beyond.
Commenting on the details of the updated livery, Sies noted that “Cyprus Airways represents the values of the island and our brand is based on the island’s history, heritage and colours.”
The new identity’s pastel colours were inspired by the mood board compiled to support the brand’s platform and convey the message of relaxation, tranquility and the unique combination of the Cypriot dawn and sunrise which are washed by the island’s surrounding sea.
The gold line emblem of a mouflon, a wild sheep found in Cyprus and also the Cypriot national symbol, has now been placed on the plane’s engines, showing the company’s heritage.
“The updated brand will support the airline’s new tagline of Taking you Home,” added Sies, “where home means we will take you safely to where your heart is”.
The first aircraft, painted with the new livery at PAD Aviation Technics GmbH in Germany, arrived at Larnaca International Airport ρεψεντλυ and was greeted by a water arch and a host of guests including Civil Aviation executives and the airline’s shareholders and management.
Cyprus Airways resumed operations in 2016 and began flights to Athens in 2018. The company operates a fleet of two Airbus A320 aircraft, currently operating a network of four scheduled destinations to Athens, Beirut, Tel Aviv, and Yerevan.
