United Airlines has announced it has welcomed a livery to its fleet, created by a New Jersey native as a tribute to the New York/New Jersey region, the company said.
The unique livery on a Boeing 757 features iconic imagery from the two states including the historic Red Mill in New Jersey, the New York City skyline and the Statue of Liberty, as well as a globe signaling United Airlines worldwide connectivity.
The aircraft was part of United´s Her Art Here contest, a competition that gave female artists the chance to use an airplane as their canvas and inspire women around the world who are interested in a career in the arts. According to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, while 51% of today´s artists are women less than 13% of art on display in museums in the U.S is by female artists.
United Airlines and United Express operate approximately 4,900 flights a day to 356 airports across five continents. In 2018, United and United Express operated more than 1.7 million flights carrying more than 158 million customers.
