Austrian Airlines Paints Airbus A320 in Retro Livery

 “Considering the colorful era of the 1980s, it was, all in all, a restrained branding on the part of Austrian Airlines,” said Isabella Reichl, Head of Marketing for the country’s national carrier. “Back then as today, the focus was on linking Austrian tradition and international modernity. Austrian Airlines did very well in the good old days.”

 It took nine days to paint complete the livery which weighs about 120 kilograms and consists of three layers.

The retro look is in homage to the destinations of Tokyo and New York. Austrian Airlines launched flights to Tokyo 30 years ago and to New York, 50 years ago, although both routes experienced substantial interruptions in service. In 1989, two Airbus A310 aircraft named Tokyo and New York were part of the Austrian Airlines fleet.
