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-AXR and VT-AXT.
You will observe Air India Express has paid a lot of attention to Kerala since Keralites represent a large base of the carrier’s passengers travelling from the state to the Gulf region.
VT-AXR features two aspects of life from the state of Kerala. The ancient martial art of Kalarippayattu, probably the oldest fighting form in existence, and the Chundan Vallam or Snake boats. These boats are anywhere from 100 to 138 ft in length. With the rear portion towering to a height of about 20 ft. and a long tapering front portion, it resembles a snake with its hood raised. Its hull is built of planks precisely 83 feet in length and six inches wide
VT-AXT features two birds from India, the Painted Stork and the national bird of India, the Peacock.
