New Alitalia ‘special edition’ aircraft

Eirtech Aviation in Ostrava (Czech Republic) recently painted an Alitalia Airbus A320 into a special livery, as part of the Alitalia rebrand programme.

Staff at the Italian national airline were asked to write a short quote or statement about what it means for them to be part of the ‘new’ Alitalia, following the takeover by Etihad Airways recently. The statements were taken and turned into paint stencils by Eirtech’s Dublin based Graphics department and shipped over to Ostrava, where the aircraft was being painted into the new livery.

The stencils were applied to the aircraft and the statements painted onto the fuselage, followed by an application of Clearcoat, to protect them. The result was a beautifully turned out aircraft showing not only the superb new livery design but also showing through the statements what it means for the staff to be part of the ‘new’ airline.
