    New Egypt Air "Egyptair" Colors

    For their 76th anniversary, their entrance into Star Alliance, and the first delivery of their new 777-300ER fleet Egypt Air will be introducing a new livery and a new "Egyptair" name.

    Egyptair is celebrating its 76th anniversary. The national airline of Egypt is joining the Star Alliance coming Summer. With the introduction of the Boeing 777-300ER and these events Egyptair has re-vitalized its brand and aircraft livery design.

    The airline changed 'Egypt Air' into 'Egyptair'. As for the aircraft paint design: although it's a bit Eurowhite-livery the new livery is still a solid and major improvement over the previous image. The aircraft livery design looks crisp and clean with the blue and white however Egyptair's old housecolours like red and gold would have make the brand more Egypt like and distinctive.

    The logo and brand, which both look much better, are well positioned on the plane. The gradients from dark to light blue in the nicely improved Horus brand symbol are too hard and could have been easily done with a fine and smooth paint brush work or with a smarter dots paint mask. The arabic 'Egyptair' text on thengine nacelles is less smart as well as for the web address at the rear.

    That's rather nice and compared to what we generally see today it looks like they thought about it for more then a min. Its modern and fresh and the billboard style works well. I especially like the use of the blues on the tail. Very well done!

    I love the tail and like the rest. As JFK is a 777 station anyone here or read if the new 777-300's are slated for early ops to JFK ?

    Cheers

    i love it! it's a big, bold statement and even though there aren't that many colors used it's not a "white" airplane anymore... kudos to whomever designed that one.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Wow that paint scheme is very modern and the blue and black go together nicely.

    I like the current colors (eventhough it still is horrible) over this HORROR. To me this livery is a disappointment. The old old colors were just fantastic.
    What a travesty.

    One of the downsides to a livery like this is that you won't see the titles unless the plane is farther way so its not blocked by the wing.

    I love the tail, but I agree with Senga's take on the titles.

    Thats true :)
    I can see people skipping the arrival just to get it off 31L in a nice bank.

    John is right, this is going to look amazing banking off of 31L. The more I look at this picture the more this is becoming a favorite of mine!

    Well in my opinion, I dont think Egypt Air would even be capture on take off from runway 31L for one reason and its because during the evening rush hours international take offs are switched to either runways 22L/R or 4L/R to reduce delays at JFK.. So I dont see a chance capturing the nice colors of Egypt Air departing over rwy 31L As much as I really love to see that...

    Sergio, you are right that the chances to catch the departure from 31L could be limited throughout the year but it's mainly due to the departure time of the flight. During the winter when the 31's are most commonly used the departure would not be shootable however come March, April, or May and even September and October it should be shootable.
