The French national carrier, Air France has launched a new, updated logo this week, that will eventually be used in all of their communication materials as well as on their full fleet of aircraft. The company also said that the rebranding will be gradual in order “to avoid additional costs“. The AirFrance website already features the new logo.
In case of an airline logo change, one of the most important questions is how it will translate to aircraft liveries? In this case it will be very simple, the fleet will gradually get the new design with the regular paint jobs, and the only two things changing will be the carrier’s logo in the front, and a very minor change to the tail: Turning the old 5 simple lines to only 4, flourish type of lines as seen here below.
You can see a video explaining the change at the Air France Corporate website.
