Liverpool-based airline wants you to design the livery of its new plane
Romanian airline Blue Air has launched a competition for someone to design the new livery for its 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft that will be based at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
Romanian airline Blue Air is asking the people of Merseyside to come up with a design for the livery of its new aircraft to be based at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA).
Last month Blue announced Liverpool would become its newest European base.
Now it has launched a competition for someone to design the new livery for its 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft that will be based here from the end of March next year.
Blue Air is keen to become ‘Liverpool’s airline’ and is already working with local organisations to help in its 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 three designs, Blue Air will then ask the public to vote for the winning design to make it a truly local decision.
The Liverpool-liveried aircraft will operate on Blue Air’s new routes from LJLA to Rome, Milan, Hamburg and Alicante.
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 Air destination.
LJLA is working closely with Blue Air on this competition and has set up a link on the homepage of the Airport’s website www.liverpoolairport.com 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 November 30, 2016.
Robin Tudor, head of PR for LJLA, said: “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 wants 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.”
