The new Azores Airlines brand image and new logo utilises the tail fin of a whale, a distinct symbol of the Azores, as the region is currently one of the largest whale sanctuaries in the world.
The Grupo SATA brand image and logo utilises the symbol of the "açor" or goshawk which was thought to have been the bird found circling the islands of the Azores when Portuguese sailors first discovered the archipelago.
