Magritte off to Madrid

March 21, 2016

After they had one of their planes put in Red Rackham livery, Brussels Airlines today presented yet another special livery plane.

Last year the Belgian carrier paid homage to the Master of the Clear Line Hergé. This year, they picked yet another Great Belgian: René Magritte, Master of Surrealism.

The plane – an Airbus A320 - is decorated on the outside with a portrait of the painter and the typical bird silhouettes filled with a cloudy blue sky. But on the inside as well the Magritte decoration continues.

The decorators got their inspiration for this special livery from Magritte’s paintings "La Clairvoyance" and "Le Retour".

This morning, hangar 41 at Brussels Airport was the backdrop for the reveal of the Magritte plane.

The next six years the plane will be used on several destinations in Europe. The first flight of special livery plane OO-SNC was Madrid.

More pictures and information on where to spot the plane in the next few days is available on
