Sky Airline unveils a new livery and becomes a LCC carrier

Sky Airline (Santiago) on March 15, 2017 unveiled its new livery and revised brand. The green color of its early years has been kept, while the blue has been replaced by a new violet color.

The new concept includes a green “arrow” (above) in the “K” that is incorporated on the horizontal stabilizer. The modified K letter is always facing forward with the green arrow portion. All Ks in the logo are modified except the one on the left side of the fuselage (below).

The first Airbus A320 (CC-ABV) in the new livery will be unveiled in April after it is painted by Coopesa. The airline will also issue new uniforms for its employees.

The Chilean carrier starting today is also reinventing itself as a low-cost carrier.
