The livery on the latest airliner delivered by Brazilian aircraft manufacturer has been described as “pawsome”.
This Embraer 190-E2 was unveiled is the latest addition to the Air Astana fleet, the national carrier for the Republic of Kazakhstan.
It’s an incredible aircraft – hotly anticipated as a competitor to the likes of Boeing and Airbus mid range planes – however it’s the paint job which is turning heads.
Delivered to the Astana International Airport on Friday the snow leopard is the first of five new E190-E2s ordered by the Kazakhstani airline.
The snow leopard joins other creative pieces of animal-inspired paint work on the new Embraer models – including a shark and a tiger which took to the skies.
The eye-catching livery is part of an awareness-raising mission for the plight of the big cat which is native to the mountains of southern Kazakhstan.
Small but efficient, it is possibly the greenest and best looking single-aisle aircraft in the market.
Flying a 2-2 configuration, passengers will be relieved to hear there are no middle seats on this plane.
As a rival to Airbus’s A220 the Brazilian airplane is already flown by Swiss, Korean and Delta airlines.
