The unique tail art of Air India Express – VT-AXW and VT-AXX

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

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-AXW and VT-AXX.

VT-AXW features the religious diversity of India in the form of the Charminar or “Mosque of the four Minarets”, in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad, and the Buddhist shrine of the ‘Great Stupa’ at Sanchi, in the central India state of Madhya Pradesh, originally commissioned by emperor Ashoka the Great, in the third century.

VT-AXX features the geographical diversity of India from the towering snow capped Himalayas in the extreme north, to the sun-kissed beaches all along the peninsula of India which starts in Gujarat in the west to Kanyakumari in the south to West Bengal in the east.

Click here for all the articles in the Air India Express tail art series. Please visit us on Monday December 28, for the final sets of tail art pictures. Have a great, safe and enjoyable holiday.
