The logo and design of PNG Air is included in a list of the 12 best airline livery by the American cable and satellite television news channel Cable News Network (CNN).
PNG Air chief executive officer Muralee Siva said the livery represented the airline’s plans of “getting it right” when it was introduced in 2015.
“When we adopted the new livery, it was to announce ourselves as a fresh, dynamic, new airline. We want to give a world class airline experience to every Papua New Guinean,” Siva said, and that means doing everything right – down to choosing a logo.
PNG Air was included in the list of 12 best aircraft liveries published by CNN online.
The CNN list included British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, All Nippon Airlines, Qatar Airways and Taiwan’s EVA.
CNN stated that it was a contemporary depiction of ancient patterns that was designed to reflect the nation’s diversity and that traditional icons from around the country were incorporated on the unusual and striking design.
