Flybe unveils new livery

Flybe has unveiled their new refreshed livery which it plans on applying to their fleet of Bombardier Dash 8-Q400s and Embraer E-Jets.

The entire fleet is expected to be repainted over a six year period, meaning the last aircraft to be painted should exit the paint shop in 2025. The painting schedule is based on when aircraft are in for maintenance, that way the regional airline can minimize fleet disruptions.

As seen in the pictures and videos below, a smooth, simple livery has been chosen by the airline’s design team. The chosen design is modern and reflects the airline’s passion for connecting regional locations.

Interestingly enough, Flybe still hasn’t repainted all of their aircraft in their “old” new livery. These will be the first to wear the new one. The first frame to be painted is 2006 built G-JECP – A Q400.

Any further orders and deliveries will come straight from the factory in the new livery.

What are your thoughts on the design?
