Saudi Arabia’s new world-class airline Riyadh Air unveiled the second of its permanent dual-livery designs at the Dubai Airshow 2023. The airline continues with its indigo theme – striking lines inspired by the twisting canopies of traditional Bedouin tents and elegant curves of Arabia calligraphy.
The bold new look features a sweeping cockpit window design, with the indigo signature theme contrasted beautifully against a light unique iridescent fuselage that reflects purity and the future-focused vision of Saudi Arabia.
Tony Douglas, CEO of Riyadh Air, said the second livery is another statement of intent from the new airline. “As the largest start-up in commercial aviation in decades, we are delighted to unveil to the world Riyadh Air’s second livery which will be unmistakable when it takes to the skies in 2025 as we become one of the first international carriers to have permanent dual-liveries on an active fleet.”
He said that since Riyadh Air’s initial launch in March, they have had exceptional progress hitting a number of major milestones for the brand. “We revealed our first livery reveal to global acclaim, announced fleet orders for our wide-body aircraft, and signed several ground-breaking new partnerships. This iconic second livery is the latest milestone for Riyadh Air as we shape and disrupt the future of air travel and aviation, with many more things to come.”
The super-sophisticated second livery sees Riyadh Air aircraft adorned in a lavender and indigo paint featuring a feather-like design near the rear of the fuselage and “Riyadh Air” written in English and Arabia and the airline’s trademark logo on the tail, engines, and aircraft underbelly.
The second livery reflects Saudi Arabia’s forward-thinking ambitions using iridescent color to add a modern twist to the innovative design, which along with intricate bold text, makes Riyadh Air instantly recognizable – on the ground and in the skies.
