Azores Airlines aircraft are distinguished by their original livery. Across a large part of the fuselage is an inscription in English that captures in one word the feeling that travellers get when visiting the Azores. Each aircraft in the fleet has a different inscription on the fuselage.

The aircraft's rudder is decorated with a stylised hawk, the bird after which the Azores are named. The bird is made up of 9 geometric shapes symbolizing the 9 Azores islands.

The company's fleet consists of the latest Airbus A320neo, Airbus A321neo and Airbus A321LR aircraft for long-haul flights to America.
