Aeromexico Debuts New Dreamliner Livery
Aeromexico unveiled new aircraft livery for its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on Tuesday. The carrier said that it named the plane Quetzalcoatl, which means Feathered Serpent, after the deity from its pre-Hispanic history.
The design features a green outline of a serpent’s head on the aircraft’s fuselage. Aeromexico said that it will wait until the aircraft has been delivered to debut the interior.
“As Mexico’s flagship carrier, this aircraft will become an icon of our fleet and a reflection of what Mexico is today, with culture and tradition represented in what we consider to be one of the most sophisticated creations of modern aviation engineering,” said Aeromexico CEO Andres Conesa.
Aeromexico announced a contest in November 2014 for participants to submit proposals for the new design. Over 1,000 participants entered the contest. The winning design was created by graphic designer Jose Manuel Escudero.
