It means passengers will be able to enjoy the tank-themed atmosphere and interior even if they enter the plane through a sleeve.

The aircraft was painted in black with bright orange patterns, plus a symbolic silhouette of a zubr was added on the fuselage.

Belavia reportedly bought the plane in 2014. It is designed for 107 passengers with 11 business class seats and 96 economy class seats.

Although the company representatives prefer to hold off on the price of the painting, they note that the prices start from $100,000. The plane was painted in Ulyanovsk, Russia.
