Meaning and History
The public image of this company, depicted by the logotype and the name, did not have many accurate facts about its origins, but one thing was clear: the logo represented the safe and pliable mood in which the airline company worked, its wish to make the flight comfortable and calm.
1984 – 2007
The logotype of the brand depicted the dark blue abbreviation ‘ADC’, where the letters ‘D’ and ‘C’ intertwine each other. At the line with the abbreviation, there was a word ‘airlines’, of the same color. Under the general inscription, there was the yellow-colored slogan ‘Pleasure Serving you’.
Emblem and Symbol
There was another variant of this logotype, with the white abbreviation, framed by the orange lines below and above. In this case, all other words and slogans except ‘ADC’ disappeared, making more emphasis on the abbreviation. This variant was being used on the airplanes, along with the principal logo.
