Air Canada’s New Livery and How to Track It

Share this article

Air Canada unveiled its new livery yesterday, repainting an initial three aircraft for simultaneous events in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. The airline painted a 787-8 and two A321s, all three of which will re-enter revenue service today.

Tracking Air Canada’s Repainted Fleet

The three initial repainted aircraft are A321s C-GJWI and C-GJWO, and 787-8 C-GHPQ. You can track each aircraft by searching for their registrations on our website or in our mobile apps. See the entire Air Canada fleet on our Airline data page.

To track additional Air Canada aircraft at the paint shop, our Grissom AFB data page will list aircraft at the Peru, Indiana facility. As we learn of additional paint facilities being utilized by Air Canada to repaint their aircraft, we’ll add those here.

Repainting the 787

Air Canada filmed their 787 receiving its new livery. Repainting a 787 is bit different than repainting older aircraft as much of the aircraft skin is composite material. In the past, we’ve gone inside the paint hangar in more detail to see how aircraft of different sizes are painted and repainted.

The New Livery

Air Canada will repaint the Air Canada mainline and Air Canada Express fleets in the new livery. Air Canada Rouge will retain its current livery. The airline released designs visualizing what the completed fleet overhaul will look like. 787 and 777 aircraft will be painted within 18 months, while the rest of the fleet will take up to 3 years to be fully painted.
