The first collaboration between JAL and Italian ABC International has concluded with the delivery of decorative crests to JAL’s new A350s and B787s.
Adopted from 1959, the JAL logo is inspired by crests of Samurai families,, with the crane representing loyalty and strength.
Design firm Tangerine designed the cabin layout of the new aircrafts and conceived the new style and finishing of the logo, before ABC International the manufacturing and installation.
The script features a gold plating effect while the “Tsurumaru” body is treated with a sophisticated sand blasted technique.
Olindo Spatola, VP Engineering and HDO at ABC International said: “The new logo is now flying and is installed into the new JAL aircrafts cabin interiors and comes with Gold plated “JAL” letters installed over an almond-gold highly coated Crane. The need to have a “concave” Crane, i.e. a Crane which is not flat, in combination with the required finishing make this product unique, as well as highly demanding in terms of manufacturing techniques and ABC feels really proud to have met customer’s expectations.”
