Watching Olympic Airways become Olympic Airlines become Olympic Air continues to be interesting. The most recent development sees the new owners, Marfin Investment Group, announce a public contest to design a new logo.
They are calling for new logos to be submitted by professional designers, advertising companies and the like. Then the public will be able to vote on three finalists. Watch this space for a link to the yet to be created voting web site. The winning designer will receive 20,000 Euro.
Even better, those voting will be entered into a draw. Fifty winners will receive two round-trip tickets each for OA flights in Greece or abroad from October 1, 2009. So start day dreaming about where you want to fly.
During Olympic Games season the organizing committee is very zealous about only allowing sponsoring companies to use their name and five interlocking rings symbol. The Greek airline, however, appears to have an equal claim. In any case they are insisting that the rings remain part of the new logo. That appears to be the only restriction.
For more information designers should contact Marfin, voters should follow this blog. I will post the link as soon as it is announced.

Thanks! Yeah, I loved Paros! I stopped there for 4 days enroute back to Athens and had an amazing time.
