Like Southwest Airlines and Frontier Airlines from last week, Spirit Airlines has decided it’s time for a new paint job for its airplanes.
And like Southwest, Spirit is not afraid of yellow.
But instead of yellow as part of a paint scheme like Southwest, Spirit’s new livery is all yellow with black lettering: “Spirit” along the side and the tail, “bare fare” on the engines.
“This new livery perfectly matches Spirit Airlines,” Spirit president and CEO Ben Baldanza said in the airline’s announcement. “It’s radically different from other airlines, and it’s fun, just like we are.
When you see this plane in the air – or on the ground – there will be no question that this is a Spirit plane.”
Spirit said six more planes will join the Airbus A319 (above) this year with the new paint job. New aircraft will have the yellow paint when they’re delivered. Existing aircraft will be repainted at “their regularly scheduled time to be repainted,” Spirit said.
