(DailyExpertNews) — The exteriors of most planes look more or less the same – white background, bold lettering, company logo – but every now and then an airline reveals a livery that stands out from the crowd.
German airline Condor is the latest airline to step up its livery game with a simple yet stylish paint job. Condor’s fleet will soon be tricked into candy-colored bold stripes, inspired by “umbrellas, beach towels and beach chairs,” according to the airline.
There are five color options: Condor says the blue stripes represent the sea, the yellow stripes represent sunshine, red represents “passion”, green represents “island,” and a beige-gold stripe should remind travelers of a sandy beach.
The airline suggests the stripes also represent “the diversity of Condor’s guests, employees, and the multitude of opportunities to discover the world with Condor.”

The first Condor striped plane has already taken off – an A321 decorated in yellow stripes took off from Frankfurt, Germany, on April 5 at noon for Lanzarote, one of Spain’s Canary Islands.
Condor has more than 50 aircraft in its fleet and promises that the majority will be painted by 2024. Expect to see six of the striped planes in service by this summer, with these planes flying to destinations such as the Canary Islands, Greece and Egypt.
