The aircraft registered as 5Y- FFB, becomes the first Embraer that will be emblazoned with the SkyTeam Livery on its tail and fuselage in addition to the Kenya Airways logo. This makes it the second KQ operated aircraft with the Sky Team livery alongside the B737-700 aircraft already in the Sky Team livery.
The SkyTeam Livery on the Kenya Airways’ aircraft is a symbol of the airline’s commitment not only to the alliance but also to delivering high quality service to its customers. The livery design is inspired by the alliances logo and features a dark blue SkyTeam logo on the tail fin, the blue SkyTeam ribbon wrapped around the back portion of the white fuselage, the SkyTeam name in large, dark blue letters along the front side of the aircraft fuselage Kenya Airways placed below it.
KQ’s Chief Executive officer and Managing Director Dr. Titus Naikuni said the new plane as well as the others expected over the next year will play an important role in the fulfilment of the SkyTeam Alliance strategy for Africa.
“Kenya Airways is the only airline in Africa that is in the SkyTeam Alliance, and with our flight and network expansion strategy, we are well poised to take advantage of this unique positioning to take traffic from markets such as China into the rest of Africa and Europe”, he said.
