VB/PB livery rebranding starts.
Hi there

According to info from another forum, Virgin Blue have commenced rebranding of their aircraft.

VUY gets AFL decals on the 21st, VUM is back out and about and still has Pacific Blue on the horizontal stabiliser but Pacific Blue on the fuse is gone and has been replaced by 'Airline Of Virgin Blue' on the forward fuse around the front hold door area in large letters, and pretty sure VUF will end up the same around the 25th of Jan.

Seems more like they are de-branding their aircraft rather than re-branding. With the rebranding to come later.

from available info I have at the moment (and i could be wrong so dont blame the messenger!)

it appears the unveiling of the AFL livery (VUY) will occur in Melbourne.. possibly it rolling out of the JHAS hangars.. on Friday.. unsure of time etc

VH-VBI and VH-VBN have been re-painted, the "virgin" girl has been taken off with the name eg. smurfette, and the virgin on the tail looks different. I would say this will be part of the re-branding. Heres a picture of VH-VBN

VH-VUM without titles.

VUY goes into the hangar in Melbourne at the JHAS hangar tomorrow night (Thursday 20th) for AFL decals & will return to service on Tuesday 25th

Tim Bowrey 19th January 2011 07:48 PM

Last service will be MEL-SYD-MEL DJ885/894 tomorrow night.

With all the rebranding going on one can only hope that all the ZK registered machines will be bought back to the aussie register.

VUM is from DPS this morning with the new titles. Seems pointless theyd go to the trouble of putting these titles on them when itl be in the hanger within the next 6 months or so getting the new livery.

All times are GMT +10. The time now is 01:43 PM.
