Can't wait to see it. Haven't been a big fan of the bienvenue livery introduced a few years ago.

How often are they changing their livery? I mean there was the failed multilingual one a couple of years ago that lead to the current one.

Before 2012, this was their livery.



Then they tried to get away with that "thing".



It was so disliked that they finally came up with this livery that is just fine for me.



I fear they'll drop the starfish from the tail, once again.

Looks interesting, they even keep the star (no fish involved...). It seems they choose a more serious livery, though I'll wait until I see it on a real airplane to get a better impression of that blue gradient.

Would have been better had they not randomly placed another star at the bottom rear and if "Air Transat" was all in the same font. Why does livery design seem to be so complicated for agencies these days? Any competent designer wouldn't have pitched that mess, maybe it's the airline execs ruining the original pitched design with lame revisions.

No wonder since: "Images of the Air Transat fleet's new livery will be embargoed until 6:45 p.m."

Must have been a mistake.

I like the improvement as a whole, but I don't know about the typeface. The capital letter in Air, then everything else lowercase and in two different colors makes it look a bit awkward and disjointed.

Actually nice. It'll be a very interesting subject to photograph in nice winter light. And the belly logo; well, isn't that the trend these days with a good number of airlines?

Wow what a huge downgrade from their previous livery. What a shame. The only good thing I like is the gradient, but everything else screams “blah”.

Honestly, I prefer the previous one. This one kinda reminds me of Luxair livery.

I think GA will love it when wet leasing it for the Hajj though, it has similar colour if you look from far away

Yes, I also like it overall but noticed that they are going against the recent trend of enlarging titles to be billboard-style. Here they are doing the opposite.

Although I am not much of a fan of billboard titles, as the windows tend to make the titles full of holes (such as AA's livery).

Looks a little like the Qantas and First Air Liveries. Not bad though. I like the way it stands out on the aircraft.

I always thought it was kinda weird and tacky that "Air" and "transat" are in different fonts, but that's the only thing I would change.

I doubt the A310's and the 737's will be painted in this livery as they will be leaving the fleet within the next 2 years. For now it looks to be just the A330's. I am actually a fan of this for a change, definitely looks a lot more corporate. Love the prominent light blue and the logo placement on the belly and on the inside facing engine cowlings. My only gripe is the titles look a little awkward on the fuselage. Should look good on the A321neoLR's too!

Air transat on the belly too! I like this. The current livery was good but too much going on at the back. Very soon the Toronto skies will see new colours for both AC and TS.

I like it! It’s bright and fresh... not sure about Transat being lower case, but otherwise I much prefer it to the current one with the words all over it, looked a mess to me. Engines with some color would have been nice, but overall I like it

The logotype at the front is underwhelming. Also don't understand the emphasis on "Air". A big TRANSAT text would be awesome. Or have the current logotype below windows.

I like it but prefer the darker shade of blue. Odd they're keeping the star as wasn't the reason for the star their former affiliation with Star Airlines of France?

I must say, compared to many recent livery updates, I like this one. I personally think the smaller titles would've looked better placed below the windows. Overall though, a nice update. It elevates their brand image, reflecting maturity as a company; professionalism, and a touch of elegance. Well done overall...

I like it a lot. A little cleaner than the previous but more design than the old one. Again paint is in the eye of the beholder so I’m sure there’s people out there who don’t like it and that’s fine too.

Definitely feels...modern, in a good way. In the render I was a bit worried the titles might be too close to the top of the fuselage and get squished, but the photos of the reveal look reassuring. If the engines can't be the same shade of blue (makes me think of French Blue), the same shade of silver would've looked nice.

I like it. Looks clean, crisp, professional. It's even colourful enough not to be too eurowhite-ish... Even the font is nice (not too sure about transat lower case, but, there you go.. ). Yes, silver engines would have looked good though..

Still waiting to see under sky light.

The aircraft flew back from GIG November 7th, landed at YUL at 7:38pm on rwy 24R and headed straight to the terminal, based on fr24 tracking. Was it painted in GIG or at YUL?

I didn't like it on paper but now that i see the image of the actual a/c, I think it looks pretty good! I agree that either the "A" should be lowercase of the "t" should be capitalized though...

Not expired, just being phased out in favor of an all Airbus fleet. A320 and A321's will be coming in to replace them. I think around March next year, Thomas Cook Group will be leasing 2 A320's to Transat to help with the transition from Boeing to Airbus.

It was painted in GIG along with a C-Check.

I am not impressed by this new livery of theirs. I would had place another starfish between the current two on the tail. It kind of reminds me to Air Madagascar's and Iberia's liveries.

Looks nice. On the other hand any livery looks better than Air Transat´s livery in the 80s. Cannot wait for the 321LRs.

Not bad at all. The current livery isn't awful, but the 'welcome' text always seemed a bit weird to me. This scheme, although not super exciting, looks a lot more professional and sharp.

Soooo... they made the blue lighter? Whats so different about it? Airlines are such wusses with branding. Honestly I don't know why they bother with these minor alterations. If you're going to change it, make a real change. WN and NK are good examples of this. Actual noticeable change
