With All Nippon Airlines (ANA) taking delivery of its first Airbus A380 in 2019, the airline has decided it needs a special livery for it.
Behold – The ANA Sea Turtle A380!
The Flying Honu (Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle) was selected from a completion run by ANA. a symbol of good luck and prosperity in Hawaii.
This will be painted on the first Airbus A380 ANA gets in 2019.
ANA plans to operate the Airbus A380 between Tokyo and Honolulu – one of its most popular leisure routes. This route has around 1.5million passengers a year flying to Hawaii – and it seems ANA will use the Flying Sea Turtle to attempt to increase how people it can carry on its services.
It seems with the Sea Turtle announcement – ANA has given away what it intends to use the A380 for – high volume passenger routes. This could mean the plane will fly short distances with more passengers, rather than going for state of the art luxury (like some of its competitors).
Still, it’s good that someone is taking on more Airbus A380 aircraft – even though ANA is taking only three of the type into its fleet.
