A month after delivery to Malaysia Airlines in a mostly-white scheme, painters of the carrier’s first A380 have added a colorful new livery.

Malaysia’s planes are known for their often distinctive colors, so it’s only fitting that the largest aircraft in the fleet should get its own special artwork.

The first of six A380s ordered by Malaysia, 9M-MNA is set to enter service on the Kuala Lumpur-London route next week.

It’s been a big week for A380s in southeast Asia, with Thai’s first superjumbo being unveiled just yesterday.
