Germanwings has received the first aircraft, an Airbus A319, in the airline's new livery.

The low-cost subsidiary of Lufthansa revealed the rebrand on 6 December when it detailed next year's takeover of large parts of its parent company's European network.



From 1 July, Germanwings will gradually operate all of Lufthansa's European flights outside the its main hubs in Frankfurt and Munich.

In addition to its existing 32 A319s, Germanwings will acquire 29 A319s and A320s from Lufthansa's mainline fleet and manage the operation of 23 Bombardier CRJ 900s of regional group carrier Eurowings.

All Airbus aircraft are to be gradually re-configured to the low-cost carrier's cabin layout and repainted over a two-year transition period.
