VivaColombia (5Z), according to their website, is “the first and only low-cost airline of Colombia.” They started in May of 2012 and operate a fleet of four Airbus A320s that service nine Colombian destinations.

They hope to grow their fleet by three additional A320s, all configured in a snug 180 seats, and expand to destinations in Central, South and North America.

The livery is simplistic and has different color balls, representing the three colors of the Colombian flag. I think the livery looks okay, but would probably look better on the shorter A319 or A318.

If the design looks familiar, probably because it is the same concept used by VivaAerobus, based in Mexico. Both airlines have some common investors, which explains the “stolen” livery design. I think it comes off better on the shorter Boeing 737-300 of VivaAerobus versus the longer A320.

“but would probably look better on the shorter A319 or A319.”

A319 or A319?

Or the A319. :)

fixed to the A318


Are they also partly owned by Ryanair like VivaAerobus?

What I was able to find is that they are both partly owned by Irelandia (aka Ryanair peeps) and IAMSA. Then each has other investors.


this livery is sucks

I’m thinking a Bubble Gum dispensing machine that also flies. Given the available space, they could have done a whole lot better. Obviously, creativity is not a string suit for these folks. Score: (0-100 scale) About 11. Let’s move on to something a bit more interesting…

Stole the livery from Wonder bread! :-)
