Kuwait Airways has unveiled a modernised livery on the Gulf carrier’s first Boeing 777-300ER.

The airline ordered 10 of the General Electric GE90-powered type in December 2014.

It showed off the carrier’s new colour scheme during a roll-out event of the twinjet (9K-AOC) held in Seattle.

The operator has retained a blue-and-white base scheme, but the vertical fin and aft fuselage carry a sweeping version of the airline’s bird logo.

On the forward fuselage, the airline’s name has been replaced simply by the title ‘Kuwait’ in upper case lettering, as well as in Arabic script.

Kuwait Airways' fleet modernisation also comprises orders for the Airbus A350-900 and the re-engined A320neo.
