Qantas Unveils Stunning First A220 Livery

November 15, 2023

AUSTRALIA, 15 NOV | QantasLink has unveiled a special livery for their very first of 29 A220-300s. This very first A220-300 has rolled out of the paintshop at Airbus' facility in Mirabel, Canada, where a striking Aboriginal paint scheme was applied.

Around 100 painters were involved in completing the livery, with the Airbus teams working with 130 stencils to replicate the detailed designs. It features over 20,000 dots and is the most complex livery Airbus has ever completed for this aircraft type.

The very first A220 for the airline is set to join the fleet later this year, less than 6 months since the original order was placed. This will help expedite the airline's fleet renewal from the Boeing 717 to the Airbus A220.

This will be the 12th new aircraft delivered to the Group in the past 12 months, including 8 Airbus A321LR aircraft for Jetstar and 3 Boeing 787 Dreamliners for Qantas. More deliveries of multiple aircraft types are expected in the next 12 months, including the first Airbus A321XLR for Qantas (Domestic). All burn significantly less fuel, generate fewer emissions and are quieter than the older aircraft they replace.
