The BOAC design will remain on the Boeing 747 until the aircraft is taken out of service in 2023.
British Airways chief executive Alex Cruz said: “So many British Airways customers and colleagues have fond memories of our previous liveries, regularly sharing their photos from across the globe, so it’s incredibly exciting to be re-introducing this classic BOAC design”
British Airways hinted that there could be more retro designs to come as part of its 100th birthday celebrations this year but details of the other planes to be painted are yet to be revealed.
