Air Canada’s planes and uniforms are going back to black, getting a retro makeover and adding the achromatic color to its traditional red-and-white scheme.

The new look will be seen on all of the airline’s 300 planes — on the fin is the revised logo called the “rondelle” (the French term for a hockey puck) with the maple leaf surrounded by a circle.

The plane redesign was created by Winkreative, lead by Winnipeg-born Tyler Brûlé, and the staff uniforms were designed by Vancouver-born Christopher Bates.
