Pandas on a plane

Our airline customers have come up with some clever liveries over the years. But now, you have the chance to design a livery of your own.

In a contest sponsored by Hainan Airlines, you can log on to design a livery featuring the characters from the Kung Fu Panda movie franchise. The grand prize winner receives a free trip to China— and the winning livery will be painted on one of the airline’s 787-9 Dreamliners. I’m no artist, but you can see my handywork below.


The contest, which runs through Sept. 30, is open to residents of the United States and Canada. Click here to get started using a design tool developed by Boeing.

Hainan Airlines, based in Haikou, China, is growing its presence in North America, where it serves a number of markets including Seattle, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Calgary and Toronto.

Is that image really your design of a livery for Hainan, Randy?

It's so pretty (and so is the plane), and you ARE an artist.

If I were Hainan, I'd choose that design of yours for sure.


Dex (Spokane):

That's actually pretty good Randy. The design tool is very well done.

Norman Garza (Long Beach, CA):

Not bad work at all, the round artwork balances things out and the panda is very good at the front of the plane.
