Martinair Logo

The Dutch cargo airline uses a strict logo that reflects its professionalism gained through extensive experience. The logo consists of two main components: a personal symbol and the company name. The symbol consists of four stripes of equal width, forming an arrow pointing to the left, although, on the tail of the airplane, it is pointing to the right. All the lines are slanted, two of them simple and the other two forming a triangle. They are colored red. The lettering opposite is in blue. The letters are mostly lowercase; only the “M” is written in uppercase. The font is bold, block, geometric.

The peculiar orientation of the arrow symbolizes the flexibility and adaptability of the company’s operational logistics. The red color of the symbol signifies urgency and importance, which is very important for a cargo airline. The contrasting blue lettering denotes reliability and trustworthiness – essential traits inherent in the transportation industry. The choice of a bold geometric font further emphasizes the company’s professionalism and attention to detail.
