British Airways has unveiled their latest and final design of retro liveries to celebrate their centenary, a Boeing 747 will be painted in the Negus design at Dublin Airport this Saturday.
The retro livery will be seen later this month, the retro design featured on the fleet from 1974 until 1980.
The repainted Boeing 747 will be on British Airways long haul routes, the design will stay until 2022.
British Airways chief executive Alex Cruz said: “Rumours have been circulating for quite some time about this final livery, so it’s exciting to confirm it is the Negus design.
“It’s particularly significant for us because it’s the first design worn by the British Airways that we all know today, with the distinctive lower case ‘a’ and the Union flag on the tailfin.”
Rumour confirmed… Negus is the last in our series of retro liveries celebrating our centenary, and will be joining our three other heritage aircraft in the skies soon! #BA100 #Negus #Centenary pic.twitter.com/s0jlMPs01G
