Luxair Unveils New 60th Anniversary Edition Livery Designed by Artist Marco Weiten

On Wednesday (June 29, 2022), Luxair announced the unveiling of a new special livery designed by Luxembourgish Artist Marco Weiten. The bespoke colorful livery features the Roude Léiw, the indisputable symbol of Luxembourg, which rises from the ashes like a phoenix, celebrating the carrier’s 60th year of service. Last February, Luxair launched an appeal to artists from Luxembourg and the Greater Region to imagine their next special livery, and the wait is now over with the unveiling of 'Flying is an Art' Anniversary Edition. The 737-800, registration LX-LGV, adorned in Marco Weiten’s design symbolizes the rebirth, promise and future of Luxair. The aircraft took off for the first time today (June 29th) with service to Tenerife.

In Wednesday’s announcement, Artist Marco Weiten said,

“60 years of Luxair, flight, history, power, energy and skill, serenity and the desire to give the best. Let's celebrate 60 years together with this lively design. Luxair's colors symbolically run through the different decades and unite in a strong Luxembourg symbol, the red lion. It represents a Luxembourg tradition, but here it rises from its ashes like a phoenix and all the colors converge in it, the dawn of a fantastic future. All together we are a positive sign of respect, competence, teaching and practice. At 60 years, Luxair is just beginning to fly... the future is now.”

Also commenting on the new livery reveal, Luxair’s CEO, Gilles Feith, said,

“This year is placed under the sign of the 60th anniversary of the first Luxair flight and I am delighted to be able to celebrate it with such a work signed by Marco. His realistic and colorful art convinced us and I am confident that it will be the same for all the people who will see this plane, in Luxembourg but also through all the other destinations to which it will fly. On this livery, the strongest symbol of Luxembourg (Roude Léiw) turns into a phoenix, perfectly symbolizing Luxair's hoped-for path for the future. I think the goal of this contest, which is to share a positive message that will touch the hearts of as many people as possible, has been successfully achieved.”

The new livery is the third edition of Luxair’s 'Flying is Art' livery program. A pre-selection of submissions was carried out by Luxair staff members in April with 11 designs making the cut. In May, Marco Weiten was selected as the winner by a professional jury of artists, art experts and Luxair management. For more information about Marco Weiten, please click here.
