I travel often through Spanish airports, where Spanair aircraft were a common sight. They came in different sizes and colours, the result of a convulse corporate history. Spanair, we will miss you!
Here is my photo-tribute:
The old livery, here a Spanair Airbus at Madrid-Barajas
And the new livery...this one spotted at BCN
Spanair was a proud Star Alliance partner
A Boeing 717, we'll see some more of these in the European skies soon!
Spanair was positioning itself as "the Barcelona airline": here a map of its network in a commercial advert
A Spanair MD-83 with the city of Barcelona in the background
Spanair EC-GVO taxiing at BCN
Spanair's fleet was initially made of MD-83s, some of these have remained with the carrier until the end
The old and new liveries side by side at BCN
Despite management efforts, the outlook had always been really foggy for Spanair...
