Now let’s take a look at what’s new design-wise.

Livery

Air Canada has also unveiled a stylish new livery, which looks like this:

You’ll notice a few key changes, including the black underbelly to clearly identify it from below, the Air Canada Rondelle reintroduced on the tail, a Canadian flag and the well-established Air Canada wordmark painted in black to be legible against the white fuselage.

And here’s what it looked like through the ages:
