British Airways’ Second Aircraft with Heritage Livery Enters Service

British Airways unveiled the second in its series of heritage liveries on Sunday, a British European Airways (BEA) design on an Airbus 319.

 The A319, registration G-EUPJ, is adorned with the BEA livery which flew predominantly on domestic and European routes between 1959 and 1968. However, there is one significant difference with the replica, the aircraft will have a grey upper wing, rather than the traditional red, to meet current wing paint reflectivity requirements.

The aircraft will now operate routes across the UK and Europe until it retires next year.

Alex Cruz, British Airways’ Chairman and CEO, said, “It was another really special day as we welcomed our BEA liveried A319 in to Heathrow ... Yet again there were huge crowds lining the perimeter fence to see the aircraft coming in, which shows just how excited people are about these designs. We’ve been overwhelmed with positive feedback from customers and colleagues.”

The BEA liveried A319 is the second aircraft with heritage designs to enter the British Airways fleet following the arrival of its BOAC 747 long-haul counterpart last month. Next to arrive with be another 747, this time with a British Airways Landor livery. And one final design will be revealed later this month as the airline celebrates its past while looking to the future.
