Luxembourg, September 07th 2015 – BCO Aviation, the specialist in aviation markings and aircraft film-based decoration was appointed by Luxair, the Luxembourgish flag carrier, to turn its whole fleet of Bombardier Q400 in the Luxembourg Presidency colors. This special livery was designed at the occasion of the twelfth Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
Since July, 1st 2015, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is at the head of the Council of the European Union. On this occasion, the national airline Luxair seized the opportunity to offer an increased support to the Luxembourg Presidency and so propose to brand seven aircraft with a special livery during the legislature.
Luxair decided to rely on its long lasting collaboration with BCO Aviation services, expert in aircraft marking operations, to run this project efficiently.
To manage this new decoration project, BCO Aviation collaborated with Luxair Technics’ engineering department and was responsible for the aircraft decoration including the project management, production and installation of the adhesive film on the fuselage.
“One of the biggest challenge was to install the special livery on all airplanes at the right time, and within a short time frame. We knew we would need a strong and efficient support to achieve that goal. In that regards, BCO has shown us, once again, that they are an ideal partner. They worked very closely with us to solve the technical issues and respected a tight schedule. It was a very successful collaboration and we are delighted with the outcome.” says Pascal Ghelein, Cabin Engineer at Luxair.
On the economic front, BCO’s high performing aviation film enables aircraft operators to benefit from significant cost savings thanks to a fast and efficient installation support. Indeed, BCO Aviation solution strongly reduces the grounding time of each aircraft, allowing them to be released for operation immediately after the adhesive film application.
The seven aircraft will operate across Europe with this special livery for the Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the European Union until December 31st, 2015.
