Peach Aviation Debuts Special New ‘Yellow Wings’ Livery in a Nod to Vanilla Air
To celebrate their 9th anniversary of the airline, Peach Aviation Limited will introduce a special ‘Yellow Wings’ livery on March 1st, 2021. The special livery applies the design of Vanilla Air which was integrated with Peach in 2019.
On Friday (February 26, 2021), Peach Aviation Limited announced the introduction of a new special ‘Yellow Wings’ livery which will debut on the carrier’s 9th anniversary on March 1st, 2021. The special livery applies the design of Vanilla Air which was integrated with Peach in 2019. After some overseas modifications, the aircraft was returned to Kansai Airport in December 2020 for various maintenance and the painting of the Peach design. The design is based on feedback by aviation fans who asked the carrier to continue operating the existing yellow design of Vanilla Air. The aircraft is an Airbus A320 (Registration Number JA08VA) and is configured with 180 seats.
The design brings a little nostalgia for those familiar with Vanilla Air, while introducing a new side of Peach. A decal on the aircraft says “Fly Peach to AMAMI” to express the passion for Amami in Kagoshima Prefecture, which is a market pioneered by Vanilla Air and is now operated by Peach from Tokyo-Narita and Osaka-Kansai. The decal encompasses hidden illustrations related to the Amami Islands including The Amami rabbit (characterized by sort ears and a black body and the Lidth’s jay of Amami (designated as a living national treasure). Additionally, the design includes a pattern of the Oshima tsumigi weave, a traditional textile.
Peach Aviation plans on developing a special webpage for the Amami Islands in late March which will feature the story of the special livery aircraft’s launch and items for sale. All the former Vanilla Air aircraft, except for the special livery aircraft have all been converted to Peach specifications.
Peach Aviation Limited (Peach) commenced operations out of Osaka-Kansai in March 2012 and currently operates 32 domestic and 17 international routes with a fleet of 36 aircraft. In addition to their base at Osaka (Kansai Airport), the carrier maintains bases at Sapporo (New Chitose Airport), Sendai Airport, Tokyo (Narita Airport), Fukuoka Airport, Chubu Airport and Naha Airport. The airline hopes to become the leading low-cost carrier (LCC) in Asia with plans to expand their network from the Tokyo metro area and Osaka-Kansai.
