easyJet wins with Bristol-Montpellier Arch of Triumph
The beginning of June marks fantastic weather and new route launches being baptised. anna.aero’s esteemed judges return to consider four fantastic Fire Truck Water Arch salutes for this week’s route launches. Keep monitoring.
easyJet Bristol to Montpellier 2nd June
Judges’ comments: The inaugural easyJet service between Bristol and Montpellier was an easy win for us when it climbed to the top of the leaderboard for this week’s FTWA. The fantastic new route was met with dusky skies and a red tender. It was only when we zoomed into the image that we noticed an airside vehicle was almost camouflaged. The image was caught at the perfect moment by the photographer as it made its move to taxi to the gate at Montpelier Airport and is an overall fantastic image.
Jonny: 8.0; Kerry: 8.2; Paul: 8.5; Nick: 8.5.
LOT Polish Airlines Warsaw to Miami 2nd June
Judges’ Comments: Despite the resolution of this image and the absence of the fire water tenders, the appearance of this dreamy Dreamliner on the tarmac was enough to turn heads as it made its inaugural flight into Miami. Although there was no symmetry or water salute visible, we can’t get our eyes off this beauty. As beautiful as this is, we at anna.aero are rating FTWA’s and we don’t feel that this image makes LOT Polish a strong contender.
Jonny: 7.0; Kerry: 7.0; Paul: 6.8; Nick: 7.1.
Ural Airlines Moscow Domodedovo to Montpellier 2nd June
Judges’ Comments: The perfect backdrop of clear blue skies and warm sunny weather gave this Ural Airlines FTWA a few extra marks from us. The symmetry and water arch also earns extra kudos points from the judges at anna.aero.
Jonny: 8.0; Kerry: 8.0; Paul: 7.7; Nick: 7.7.
airBaltic Tallinn to Brussels 3rd June
Judges’ Comments: WOW! The aircraft livery of this airBaltic A320 got us really excited. Despite the image resolution and the fire tenders sneaking in to make only half an appearance on both sides, the sheer force of water makes this a good effort from the airport staff at Brussels. The angle of the image is great and is a good effort.
Jonny: 7.2; Kerry: 7.2; Paul: 7.5; Nick: 7.1.
