AirBaltic has invited creatives from around the world to help design the livery of its 50th A220-300 aircraft.
The competition is open to anyone over the age of 18 from all countries, including artists, designers and creative talent – entries from commercial companies or designs that showcase recognizable commercial brands will not be accepted.
Participants must download a blank image of the A220-300 livery and design the front, right and left sides of the aircraft, but leave the engines and winglets unchanged.
In addition, they must provide a description of “what the livery expresses, how it relates to airBaltic and why it is the right fit for the 50th aircraft.”
Submissions are possible until December 12, 2023, and delivery of the aircraft is scheduled for November 2024.
The Design Committee will evaluate all entries based on compliance with the competition guidelines and shortlist 15 to 20 designs.
These designs will then be displayed on a dedicated website and voting will be open exclusively to airBaltic Club members from December 19, 2023 to January 4, 2024, with one vote per member. Members who participate can also enter a raffle for a chance to fly on this special aircraft.
The winner will be contacted on January 8th and will be able to see their design on the 50th aircraft and receive €3,000 Gift voucher for airBaltic.
Martin Gauss, CEO and President of airBaltic, said:
“The ever-growing fleet of our Airbus A220-300 aircraft is clearly recognizable by their green tails, a distinctive feature of airBaltic. Celebrating significant achievements and significant events with unique liveries has a long tradition in aviation, as can already be seen on four of our aircraft in the colors of the flags of the Baltic States.
“As we aim to reach a fleet of 100 aircraft by 2030, we eagerly await the arrival of our 50th aircraft at the end of 2024. To mark this milestone, we are pleased to offer a unique and historic opportunity to participate in the creation of the aircraft livery for this special one Airplane. Perhaps your exact design will be carried by one of our aircraft in the wide airspace of the Baltic Sea Network.”
AirBaltic operates more than 100 routes from Riga, Tallinn, Vilnius and Tampere, offering connections to destinations in Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the Caucasus region.
