Official Airline of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest, Austrian Airlines has revealed the plane branded with the contest’s theme artwork!
The special foil sticker with a material strength of only 0.05 millimetres consists of 24 individual parts with a total size of 13.53 x 3.9 meters. The foil withstands temperature fluctuations between +80°C and -60°C as well as straining of the fuselage which can arise due to pressure differences on the ground or in the air.
For the first time in its 60-year history, the Eurovision Song Contest, the biggest TV entertainment event in the world, will be organised as a green event in accordance with the Austrian Ecolabel guidelines.
Together with Climate Austria, Austrian Airlines offers passengers flying to Vienna the opportunity to compensate for the CO₂ emissions arising from the flight by making a voluntary donation. The amount depends on the actual, average jet fuel consumption per passenger on the respective route and is directly donated to climate protection projects.
