Painting an aircraft is far more than just a change of color. It conveys an image, it supports brand communication and it is the first impression passengers get when they board a booked flight. In other words, paint makes a statement. But, paint is also important for protecting the aircraft’s hull against corrosion and deterioration. Paint, however, is a rather general term comprising components, such as resins, color pigments, lacquers, enamels and primers, which are sprayed, brushed or dipped, depending on the method most suitable for the purpose. Watch this video to learn more about the art of glamming up an aircraft, in this case the number one Airbus A330neo jetliner, which performed its first flight from Toulouse-Blagnac Airport in 2017.
