launched to design Blue Air's Liverpool aircraft livery
FOLLOWING on from October
announcement by 'Blue Air' to make Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) their
newest European base, the airline has launched a competition for someone to
design the new livery for their 189 seat Boeing 737 and 800 aircraft that will be
based at Liverpool, from the end of March 2017.
Blue Air are keen to become Liverpool's airline and are already working with
local organisations to help in their recruitment for up to 35 new, direct, local
employees. The 'design a livery' competition is another way in which the
airline wants to become part of the Liverpool City Region and having shortlisted
what they believe are the top 3 designs, Blue Air will then ask the public to
vote for the winning design to make it a truly local desicion.
The Liverpool liveried aircraft will operate on Blue Air's new routes from LJLA
to Rome, Milan, Hamburg and Alicante and one lucky individual who comes up with
the best design, will have this recreated on the aircraft fuselage to be seen by
thousands of passengers at LJLA, at airports in Europe and in the skies above
As well as seeing their design appear on the aircraft, the winner of the
competition will also receive two free return flights from Liverpool to any Blue
Liverpool John Lennon Airport is working closely with Blue Air on this
competition and has set up a link on the homepage of the Airport's
website, from where budding
aircraft livery designers can download an aircraft template on which to complete
their design and send in their entry.
Entrants must be 18 or over and the closing date for the competition is 30
Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented:-
"This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to have their idea for an aircraft
livery become reality and to be seen by thousands of people at home and abroad.
Blue Air really want to be a part of the City Region and for passengers to think
of them as their airline. Painting their aircraft with a livery unique to their
operations here at Liverpool is a great way to help achieve this."
