airDC shows its colours
airDC, the new Congolese airline created by Hewa Bora Airways and Brussels Airlines, announces its company logo.
By choosing a logo whose warm colours in a zebra pattern recall the unique African atmosphere, the Congolese airline airDC stresses its African identity.
From a visual viewpoint, the dynamic lines of the logo suggest movement and travel, as well as the graceful form of a wing. Both the reassuring oval form and the simple and modern typography remind us that airDC will operate in line with international security rules, offering its passengers a unique travel solution within, from and to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Johan Maertens, General Director of airDC states : "This logo brings together all the qualities of the new Congolese company : typical African colours on a modern template. It's the ideal logo for airDC, which is poised to become the reference in terms of safety, punctuality and reliability."
The first aircraft bearing the new airDC colours, a BAe 146, will be visible shortly. A drawing of its design can be seen in the attached pdf document. The fleet will initially comprise 2 BAe 146 aircraft and will soon be reinforced with a Boeing 737-300.
The preparations are currently ongoing at Kinshasa N'Djili airport, airDC's operational home base in DRC. Pending all necessary authorisations, the first airDC flights are planned for end of March 2008.
airDC was created by the Congolese Hewa Bora Airways and the Brussels Airlines group, by means of its subsidiary Pan African Airlines. Hewa Bora Airways holds 51 percent of the shares and Brussels Airlines the remaining 49 percent.
