Emirates Boeing with new Expo 2020 Dubai livery
Emirates big Boeing 777-300ER jetliner has the largest Expo 2020 Dubai logo
The Expo 2020 Dubai logo design spans over 37.8 meters in length and 12 meters in width emblazoned over the fuselage of the newly arrived Boeing 777-300ER jetliner. Emirates being the Premier Partner, displaying its support for Expo in this unique way. Emirates will be affixing three different decal designs to reflect the different themes of Expo 2020- namely opportunity, mobility, and sustainability. The theme of the first decal installed was ‘mobility’ which also relates to Emirates’ role as a connector of people, places, and opportunities, as the airline links over 150 destinations in 84 countries to and from, and via its hub in Dubai. The main theme of Expo 2020 Dubai also revolves around ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’.
Emirates the Middle East leading airline and one of the best airlines in the world have dedicated a total of 40 aircraft from its fleet, both Airbus A380s and Boeing 777s, to display Expo 2020 decals starting in 2017 through to the end of Expo 2020 Dubai. In addition, all aircraft in Emirates’ fleet will also carry a new Expo 2020 nose decal. The Expo 2020 decal installed by the Emirates Aircraft Appearance Centre is one of the largest decals to be applied on an Emirates Boeing 777 aircraft with A6-EPK registration. It is also the first time that the surface area on top of the aircraft has been covered by a decal. The decal was designed, printed and installed by Emirates’ in-house graphics shop team. It took a team of 6 staff over 84 hours to complete the decal installation.
His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline and Group said: “Expo 2020 Dubai will be an important platform facilitating a global exchange of ideas, collaborations and partnerships across a range of industries and domains. Emirates is gearing up for this landmark occasion and championing the vision of ‘Connecting Minds and Creating the Future’ through the new Expo 2020 decals that will be installed on our aircraft.”
The unique and striking livery covering over 40% of the aircraft fuselage surface area is based on the Expo 2020 logo inspired by an ancient gold ring excavated in Dubai and it underlines Emirates’ support for the vision of Expo 2020 Dubai. Emirates is the Official Airline Partner of Expo 2020 Dubai.
Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director General Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau said: “We are delighted to see Emirates, our first Premier Partner, expressing its support for Expo in this way. We are planning to host the first World Expo where the majority of our visitors will be traveling internationally. By carrying our logo across the world on its aircraft, Emirates is playing an important role in helping us promote that goal.”
