KLM reveals new details about upcoming A321neo fleet including redesigned livery

KLM Airbus A321neo

KLM Royal Dutch Airline has revealed new design details relating to its upcoming Airbus A321neo fleet, which will include a fresh, previously unseen livery.

On February 13, 2024, KLM announced that the new A321neo livery will see the trademark blue and white separated with a dark line, with all three colors swooping down under the belly of the aircraft as they approach the nose.

This will leave the front of the plane painted entirely in blue, rather than blue and white.

The new livery also plays a practical role in the event of an emergency nose replacement, as a new one can be fitted without disrupting the signature blue markings.

A black outline resembling sunglasses has also been introduced around the cockpit window.

Inside the A321neo, KLM passengers will benefit from the aircraft’s wider seats, larger tray tables and spacious luggage bins.

Each seat is equipped with a tablet holder and a USB port, plus multi-colored ‘mood lighting’ that adjusts at every stage of the flight.

There will be less bumping between passengers and cabin crew members during the flight too, with wider aisles and easier-to-reach overhead bins.

The A321neo interior also comes with additional blue detailing and special lighting at the entrance to ensure a warm welcome.

“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,” Marjan Rintel, CEO of KLM, said.

KLM plans to begin operating the first aircraft of thirty new A321neos from August 2024.
