The painting, called “Ararinha Azul”, was created from a partnership between the airline and the paint manufacturer AkzoNobel. The painting costs R $ 350 thousand reais and has 58 different colors that depict Brazil well, either because of its variety of tones or because of the fauna and flora which is very well designed on the hull.
The famous graffiti artist Pardal from São Paulo was curated by Dionísio, an agency specializing in art that connects companies and artists. He was invited to present the importance of Brazilian nature and animals. Of the different colors used in Azul’s E2, 28 were developed exclusively for this project. The plane also prints a sparrow, the bird that gives the artist his name.
That Embraer was supposed to arrive for Azul in March this year, but due to the pandemic, the company decided to postpone deliveries to at least 2024 to be able to foresee that period depending on the recovery in the economy and demand for travel.
The PS-AEF registration aircraft will now continue its flight test campaign while the date of its integration into the Azul fleet remains uncertain.
