Cathay Pacific unveiled a new livery Sunday morning during a ceremony in Hong Kong. The long rumored change comes months after the airline unveiled a new refreshed logo that is incorporated in the new livery. Replacing the current Landor designed Cathay Pacific look that was unveiled in 1994. The new, or some would say refreshed CX livery maintains the same if not exceeds the conservative nature as its predecessor. In sharp contrast, the airline has had a history of flamboyant themed schemes particularly in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Behind the new livery are several key changes. Notably gone from the new livery is the color red. Cathay Pacific emphasizes a new simplified color palette that includes the colors green, grey, and white.The fuselage of the aircraft received a minor tweak with the classic gray band now running down the entire fuselage. The tail of the aircraft received major changes with the famous Cathay Pacific brushwing logo playing a more prominent role.
