Air New Zealand's fleet is in for a makeover, with bold new livery incorporating the iconic New Zealand 'fernmark' logo.
The new livery will introduced later this year as part of a worldwide NZ$20m (A$16.7m) marketing campaign between Air New Zealand and Tourism New Zealand.
Most aircraft will be dressed to impress in the airline's standard white livery, which will now feature a dramatic black section sweeping up from the rear of the wings, as seen blow in this PR shot showing the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner due for delivery next year (and which will likely launch on the Auckland-Shanghai route).
However, Air New Zealand will continue to paint a select number of aircraft in a distinctive 'all-black' variant of the new design.
The design process involved extensive consumer testing including focus groups both in New Zealand and overseas, with the airline stating that 78 percent of those surveyed believing the country's familiar 'fernmark' should be incorporated into the airline's new look.
