Air India Express has one of the most unusual liveries in the airline industry across the world. Each Boeing 737-800 has a different tail art with each side of the tail reflecting an aspect of India.
In our on-going series, today we feature the tails of VT-AXG and VT-AXH.
VT-AXG features bridal wear and exotic jewellery. In India divorce is rare, and marriage is a sacred occasion. A bride is decked in the finest silks interwoven with gold thread and finest jewellery adorning her from head to toe. Most brides will wear a red dress or hues like pink. In some states brides wear a white wedding dress which features extensive gold thread and usually a border of red or green. Bracelets of glass and of gold will adorn her wrists a third of the way up to her elbow.
VT-AXH features two monuments from the British “Raj” of India. The Gateway of India in Mumbai and the India Gate in New Delhi. The Gateway of India was built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to Bombay, in December 1911. The India Gate is the national monument of India and houses the Amar Jawan Jyoti — the flame constantly burning at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
