Brussels Airlines has unveiled the latest aircraft in its “Belgian Icons” series, featuring an image inspired by the country’s annual Tomorrowland music festival.
The A320 aircraft features a colourful bird on the fuselage, along with the words “Brussels Airlines – we fly you to the home of Tomorrowland”.
The electronic music festival is held in the northern Belgian town of Boom, and last year the airline carried over 10,000 passengers to the event, across 108 flights.
The Amare aircraft (which Brussels Airlines says stand for “unity, love and friendship”) will remain painted in its new livery for a period of five years, and travellers can view its flight schedule here.
The image was airbrushed onto the aircraft over a period of two weeks by a team of eight artists, and passengers will also experience special mood lighting inside the aircraft, along with the “Tomorrowland Hymn” by Hans Zimmer when they board.
The design is the fourth in the carrier’s “Belgian Icons” series, with other including “Rakcham”, dedicated to Tintin, and Magritte, inspired by the surrealist painter Rene Magritte.
