The livery of Royal Jordanian is a dark grey fuselage with the title in both English and Arabic.
Red tips are located on the fins, winglets, and engines of the aircraft, along with two strips (one gold and one red), down the fuselage; the
fin features a crown.
This livery has been used since 2006, prior to which the livery was similar, even though the engines were not painted, and the fin had no
curved stripe atop.

Royal Jordanian never had an aircraft painted in a special colour
scheme until 2009.
During the Oneworld 10th anniversary celebration in February
2009, it was announced that Royal Jordanian would paint its new
A319 to be delivered late in March in a unique scheme, based on
the Oneworld name and logo (right).

white and engines in regular Royal Jordanian colours.
At the front of the aircraft is “Member of Oneworld” in prominent
learning, with the common title “Royal Jordanian” further back.
