The first Airbus A320neo with new blue livery to join the ITA Airways fleet has rolled out the paint shop in Shannon Airport, Ireland. It is dedicated to Giacinto Facchetti, extraordinary full-back and captain of the Italian national football team between the 1960s and 1970s. It sports unique design details such as a Zorro mask and winglets, and it will be serving the Company’s medium-haul routes from the end of January.
