Are the rumours about Flybe getting a new livery correct? They posted a teaser today on twitter.

It seems to be a ‘revised’ livery, rather than another overhaul. Sounds like removing the other colours, so just purple and white to fit with the new ‘Closer to you’ branding. Not that they have more important things to focus on... ��

The rumours are indeed correct and whilst not unexpected, i feel are completely unnecessary. Even with the more recent less colourful 'close to you' branding update being used online and as part of passenger print material, the livery still stands out amongst the crowd. It also enabled Flybe to make use of the colours again in the future. It was only 4 years ago when this current purple livery was rolled out and it still hasn't managed to become uniform across the whole fleet by any means. I don't expect this revised one to roll out much quicker, even if it is just the removal of the vivid colour bands.

The only reason for the update i can presume, is that the more simplified purple / lilac tone livery and 'close to you' branding saves money on paint and and other printing material ?

Seems this is the new livery.

Basically very similar to Eastern's livery on their E170s.

I can't remember if it was someone on this forum that quipped "faster than walking" but it has come to mind everytime I see their 'proper' slogan.

And very similar to the Bombardier house livery for the Q400, with blue replaced by purple.

Not bad but would definitely replace the small purple logo at the front with a larger one across the windows much like the previous scheme, otherwise the white looks too bland!

Does anyone know why you cannot access the timetable via the Flybe website at the moment? It's been like that for couple of days.

The layout of the new website suggests there is a timetable but when you click on the link it doesn't appear. When I queried this with Flybe they seemed unaware of the fact but said they would "look into it".

Wow! Completely agree. Got to hope perhaps that this first aircraft will be having a special sticker / promotional titles applied once back in Exeter and that the actual livery will indeed look like the above ?

Looks awful, if I could use one word to describe it then it would be the C word. A complete waste of time and money, and will take another 6 years before Flybe has a uniformed livery. Personally I can't stand Christine anymore, what exactly has she done any better then what Saad Hammad did? Removing the Embraer 195s Saads Plan, the fleet review Would of happened regardless of who was CEO. Along with many other balls up I fail to see anything remarkable she has achieved within her first year of office, other than rebranding a company that didn't need rebranding.

What we have gone from is a brand identity that is already rolled out across airport, aircraft, staff and internal, to a pervy sounding slogan, rubbish looking livery and a CEO paid of 400K a year! Mark my words she won't be the CEO any longer than another 18 months.

I'm guessing it'll be the remaining white aircraft that will be repainted in the new livery, rather than the ones that are already purple, at least initially?

You can add mass exodus of senior staff as well to that list.
