Each of the aircraft features large bold ‘Yes to Europe’ titles above the window line on the forward fuselage, and also features the European circle-of-stars emblem on their fuselage sides. 

“Soon millions of citizens will have the opportunity to shape the future of the European Union. Now more than ever, it is up to all of us to use our votes in the European elections to stand up for democracy and a united and free continent. This is the prerequisite for a strong location and a strong economy,” said Carsten Spohr, CEO, of Lufthansa Group 

The four specially liveried Lufthansa Group Airbus A320s with their ‘Yes to Europe’ slogan have been operating throughout their European home continent for several weeks, serving as “flying ambassadors of the European idea in the run-up to the European elections”, according to a Lufthansa Group statement.
