airBaltic Repaints Airbus A220 in Lithuanian Flag

August 9, 2019


airBaltic has revealed a brand new livery on one of their Airbus A220s. The carrier is known for its flag liveries, which have seen Latvia and Estonia’s flags painted onto aircraft. Now the airline has created a hat trick by painting the Lithuanian flag onto the side of an aircraft.

Creating special liveries is nothing new. Sometimes airlines do them for fun, sometimes as part of a sponsorship deal, or sometimes to celebrate their history. However, the reason for airBaltic’s flag liveries is different. The airline has chosen its three biggest markets and plastered their flag onto the side of A220s to say thanks.

Not the first livery

The new livery revealed by airBaltic is not the first. In fact, the airline’s first venture into the special livery was with the Latvian flag. This aircraft was repainted to celebrate 100 years of Latvian independence. Additionally, it was flown in formation over Riga accompanied by fighter jets to aid the celebration.

Following the success of the Latvian livery, airBaltic decided to create a second flag livery. This saw a second airbus A220 being repainted, this time as the flag of Estonia. The Estonian livery sees a blue, black, and white flag adorning the aircraft.

During a recent trip to Riga with airBaltic, Simple Flying was lucky enough to see both of the existing liveries parked out on the ramp. The Estonian livery is particularly striking.
