The unique tail art of Air India Express – VT-AXZ and VT-AYA

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-AXZ and VT-AYA.

VT-AXZ features the geographical diversity of India from the searing deserts in the state of Rajasthan, to the snow capped Himalayan peaks and lush valleys of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

VT-AYA features the two rock-cut UNESCO world heritage sites of Ajanta and Ellora located close to the city of Aurangabad in the state of Maharashtra. While Ajanta was built in the second century BCE, Ellora was built between the 5th century and 10th century. Both sites demonstrate the religious harmony prevalent during this period of Indian history.
