KLM reveals new A321neo livery

KLM will take delivery of its new Airbus A321neo in just a few more months, with Copenhagen, Berlin and Stockholm recently announced as initial destinations.

Today, KLM revealed further details about the new aircraft’s livery and interior.

The airline will commence operating the first of a total of around thirty A321neos in August.

The new livery – the aircraft’s exterior paint scheme – is both eye-catching and practical: the dark line separating KLM’s trademark blue and white swoops farther down, rendering the nosedome completely blue.

Each seat is equipped with a tablet holder and a USB port, and there is multi-coloured “mood lighting” that adjusts at every stage of the flight.

Crew members will also have more room for manoeuvre thanks to the wider aisle and easy-to-reach overhead bins.

Marjan Rintel, CEO KLM said: “The arrival of the A321neo marks a major upgrade of our European fleet.

“It is 50% quieter and generates 15% fewer carbon emissions than the aircraft it is replacing, making this an important step towards cleaner, quieter and more fuel-efficient aviation.”
