The new mask livery was designed by Indonesian creator, Jailani, the winner of the first phase of Garuda’s Fly Your Design Through the Sky competition which took place from October 1-9.
Themed Indonesia Pride, the livery design showcases the country’s cultural and natural richness, depicted by illustrations of Balinese Barong, a temple, alongside a Komodo dragon, the icon of Indonesian fauna.
Garuda Indonesia president and CEO Irfan Setiaputra said the Fly Your Design Through The Sky competition is aimed at encouraging active participation in raising public awareness on the importance of mask-wearing amid this pandemic, through the designing of face mask livery that will be gradually painted on four of the carrier’s Airbus planes.
The competition will be held throughout this month, with the four winners to be announced in stages through October till November 9.
