AIRLINE PAINTS THEIR PLANES IN CANDY STRIPES
Airline Paints Their Planes In Candy Stripes
Condor has decided to make flying with them a little bit sweeter.
The German airline has just revealed its fleet of colourful stripes and according to a statement, the candy-coloured bold stripe patterns were inspired by parasols, bath towels and beach chairs.
Travellers will be treated to five different colour options with a different meaning behind each of them.
The blue stripes represent the sea, the red represents passion, the green represents an island, the yellow represents sunshine and the beige-gold stripes represent sandy beaches.
The airline also said that the stripes represent the diversity of their guests, employees, and the multitude of opportunities to discover the world with Condor.
Condor was previously owned by the British holiday company Thomas Cook. The travel company collapsed in 2019 and had to sell many of its planes.
The airline isn’t the first to add some fun colours and patterns to its fleet.
CNN reports that All Nippon Airways “Flying Honu” A980s are designed to resemble bright-coloured turtles, and stunning indigenous art adorns one of Qantas’ Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.
Condor has more than 50 aircraft in its fleet. While they have promised to have the majority of them painted by 2024, they will kick off with six of the striped aircraft to be in operation by this summer already.
The aircraft will soon be flying to the Canary Islands, Greece and Egypt.
