31 March 2019 – Croatia’s national air carrier, Croatia Airlines, has begun updating its fleet of aircraft.
After more than 20 years, Croatia Airlines has decided to freshen up its livery and have started to apply its new-look colour scheme onto its Airbus A319 aircraft.
There are not any mayor changes besides the lettering of “Croatia” on the fuselage being larger, making it more recognisable, and the trademark Croatian checkerboard being extended further down the body of the aircraft.
The airlines is marking 30 years of its existence this year and is celebrating the year with the motto “We’ve been creating memories for 30 years”. 38.2 million passengers have flown with Croatia Airlines since its inception.
Croatia Airlines (CA) was founded on 7 August 1989 in Zagreb as an airline carrier and its first flights began in December that same year providing postal services. It was given its current name on 23 July 1990 and it became the country’s national carrier for passenger travel and postal services.
On Croatia Airlines’s YouTube channel, they have released a behind the scenes video by Šime Lugarov of the painting process of their Airbus A319.
