Azores Airlines Airbus A321neo arriving at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) from Ponta Delgada International Airport (PDL) on a lovely Saturday evening 2019. Interestingly, the A321neo aircraft pictured above was delivered to the airline in July 2019, the same month as this image was taken. Operating out of the São Miguel island of the autonomous archipelago of the Azores, Azores Airlines is the international carrier for the region. Situated in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, the airline is known by their slogan "The Atlantic in You". Note the very interesting and well-thought-out logo, which was updated from an older variant concurrent with the re branding of the company in 2015, on the tail and engines of this aircraft. An intriguing design comprised of nine differently shaded geometric shapes (representing the nine islands of the Azores) forms the outline of a sperm whale tail. The significance being that the Azores archipelago is recognized as a whale sanctuary. The special "Magical" livery on this plane includes a QR code, directing you to www.azoresairlines.pt — a smart 21st century twist!
