American low-cost airline JetBlue Airways revealed a new tail design for its first Airbus A321LR aircraft. The A321LR was selected to operate the airline’s first European destination in 2021.
The design of the A321LR tail fin features waving ribbons in varying shades of blue. The design of the painting was created specifically to emphasize a route to London as the airline is still targeting 2021 for the launch of transatlantic operations.
JetBlue (JBLU) revealed that all tail fins of the 13 A321LRs it has ordered, will be adorned with symbolic streamers.
