JAKARTA (The Jakarta Post/ANN): National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia is holding a competition to design face mask livery for its Airbus planes as part of its campaign to promote health protocols amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Through the competition, the airline invites the public to submit their mask livery design for the planes.
Participants can submit their work through Instagram or Twitter until the end of October and the airline will announce the winners on Nov. 7.
“The four most attractive designs selected will each get one Garuda Indonesia business class airplane ticket and the design will be used as the Garuda Indonesia aircraft livery, ” the airline wrote in a post published Thursday on its official Instagram account, @garuda.indonesia.
The airline had previously painted a blue surgical mask livery on the nose of one of its Airbus A330-900 Neo craft, showcasing the mask-wearing plane on Thursday (Oct 1) at the hangar of the Garuda maintenance facility in Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, in Tangerang, Banten.
Garuda president director Irfan Setiaputra said the aircraft livery was a symbol of support for the government’s efforts to promote mandatory mask-wearing measures to help curb the transmission of the coronavirus.
“We realise that efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19 requires full support and the active role of various parties, ” Irfan said in Thursday’s statement.
“Hopefully, our efforts can help increase public awareness on the application of health protocols in everyday life, especially using masks.”
The five mask-wearing planes, Irfan said, would be used for domestic and international routes, including flights to Singapore and Japan. - The Jakarta Post/Asia News Network
