Emirates unveils new livery marking the 50th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates
Emirates marks the 50th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates by unveiling a special livery that was painted on two of its aircraft, an Airbus A380 and a Boeing 777-300ER, to commemorate the nation's Golden Jubilee.
The aircraft was decorated with a custom design "United Arab Emirates 50", denoting the golden anniversary of the Emirates house and hub, UAE. The new themed livery covers both parts of the aircraft's fuselage, in Arabic and English.
The design uses "Emirates" in the original livery to complete the name of the UAE, denoting the airline's pride in being part of the nation's journey and progress. Emirates has carried the ambitions, values and success story of the United Arab Emirates in every corner of its network, literally hoisting the nation's flag around the world.
It takes 3 days and up to 14 employees to paint each livery.
Like its home and hub, the United Arab Emirates, Emirates has established itself on the global stage in a relatively short period of time. Livery also demonstrates the strength and resilience of the UAE's world-class airline industry, which connects the world and brings people, businesses and economies together.
The design of the number "50" in the livery reveals dynamic but graceful lines, illustrating the historical moments of the country. Turbines and continuous curves demonstrate the vibrant features and achievements of the UAE over the past 50 years, which have continually exceeded the limits of what is possible, guided by visionary leadership.
The first aircraft painted with anniversary livery "United Arab Emirates 50", registered A6EVG, operated the first flight to Frankfurt earlier this week. Over the next month, several planes will be decorated with special livery. On average, it will take 3 days and up to 14 employees to paint each livery at the Emirates Engineering Center.
The UAE's 50-year-old aircraft fleet is set to fly into the Emirates network and will visit destinations such as Los Angeles, London, Washington DC, New York, Munich, Zurich and Paris, among other cities in the next few weeks. helping to spread the messages of the UAE Golden Jubilee around the globe.
