Air New Zealand A320 “All Blacks”

Air New Zealand A320 “All Blacks livery”

About livery and Orgins

Air New Zealand operate 30 Airbus A320 on short haul and domestic operations around the Pacific and Australia.

The Black beauty aircraft ZK-OAB was the first Domestic A320 to be delivered to Air New Zealand’s Fleet In 2010 replacing the aging 737-300 aircraft. It was originally painted In the “all blacks livery” but was repainted to this new and I would say improved livery. The “Black beauty” livery is a new version of the “all blacks livery” which features on the 787-9, 777-300ER aircraft as well.

I can’t tell the difference… also wouldn’t this look better with winglets?

This aircraft was one of the earlier A320 aircraft air nz ordered without winglets. I will check I think there may be Aircraft with this livery and winglets.

Update : the aircraft has been painted with a white nose to protect sensitive equipment in the nose.

Ha what a joke. I predicted it when I said “Air NZ is doing themselves a disservice by painting their aircraft black.”
It would still be pretty good to see the original livery.

Not sure about heavier but yeah it heats up a bit more. Only effects nose come as it has most sensitive equipment.

Since I see a few new livery’s being added for the A320 why not bump this one
