Condor unveils bold new livery

Share this article

Condor unveiled a new livery, taking the cover of its new striped color scheme. The airline plans to repaint much of its fleet in the striped theme. Aircraft will be painted in either green, yellow, blue, red, or beige.

The first aircraft to fly

A321 D-AIAD is the first Condor aircraft to fly in the new livery. After painting in Maastricht, the plane flew to Frankfurt on 4 April. Additional aircraft will be painted in either “Condor Island” (green), “Condor Sunshine” (yellow), “Condor Sea” (blue), “Condor Passion” (red) or “Condor Beach” (beige).

Condor’s first A330neo

Condor’s first A330neo also broke cover on 4 April after painting in Toulouse. The aircraft carries test registration F-WWCS.

Partial credit

Aircraft leased by Condor, but operated by other airlines will receive a partial livery. This Bulgaria Air A320 is the first to get the “some stripes” livery.

Sailing the ‘Condor Sea’

D-ATCF is the first A321 to wear the blue Condor ‘Sea’ livery.

Current Condor liveries

The airline currently operates aircraft in multiple liveries. Some aircraft wear a version of the blue livery Condor introduced in the early-2000s during the transition to Thomas Cook ownership. Others wear the yellow and silver “Sunny Heart” livery introduced in 2014. And a few operate in a basic white and gray color scheme.

Condor’s retro jets

Condor also operates two retro jet livery aircraft. 767 D-ABUM operates in a livery based on the airline’s 1960s-1970s livery.

And A320 D-AICH operates in the Condor Flugdienst livery from the airline’s founding in the mid-1950s.

  1. Nothing wrong with that, looks good! I don’t know why people hate it so much… 🙂

  2. Reminds me of Braniff Airlines. Solid, bold colors on each aircraft but no zebra stripes just solid flamboyant colors.

  3. Seems fresh and easily recognizable. I’m I the only one bothered by the different lengths of the condor logos in the island (3 stripes) and sunshine (4 stripes) schemes?!

  4. “Looks like a bunch of jailbirds” by NACHUM H. Clever comment.
    I think it is a horrible livery. Guessing who’s responsible for this.

  5. Warum nicht ? Mir gefällt die neue Bemalung. Ist peppig und frisch.

  6. Looks good to me. It also provides convenient cut lines for when the aircraft get broken up 😀

  7. When this was Announced, i thought it was an April Fools day prank 😂
    But no…, it’s real!

  8. I like it, brings colour and excitement not like the current trends of boring plain depressing liveries.

  9. Seems pretty brave for an airline to try to find new and expensive ways to trigger epilepsy…

  10. Great new livery! Leased Condor jets, like the Bulgaria Air one, look nice with the fresh “partial credit.”

  11. Condor livery is unusual and striking. Will be noticed which presumably is the point.

  12. I vastly prefer the partial livery. Having just the stripes on the tail makes it feel classy and still recognizable. Striping the entire plane makes it look amateurish and circus-like. I think this gimmicky look will get old very fast. I appreciate the effort to be different, though!

  13. Only seen yellow & green & they are both a huge NO. Thought it was an April Fool at first. Like stripes on tail of Bulgaria Air

  14. The new one looks god-awful–but that was what people thought about Southwest’s with the bright sold colors when they first started using it! Maybe in a few years those stripes will seem normal.

  15. @Justin Case: I felt the same way! However, it is definitely something different with a high attention factor! Still, somehow I can’t quite get used to this colour scheme. But then, I’m just a veteran airliner…

  16. Heavens! Uh-uh-GLEE is my word for it. I wouldn’t won’t to fly with Condor. Are they this trivial with everything else, like maintenance, etc.?

  17. Reminds me somehow on the Calders‘ liveries that Braniff flew in ancient times. I don‘t like it that much but it is for sure different, but rather in a bad way. What I don’t understand why they have put the titles in such a common way, it couldn‘t be any more boring in my opinion. Anyway, for aviation at least something different for their collection.

  18. Dreadful. Make me feel nauseous. Partial stripes much more attractive

  19. Puts a smile on your face. Well suited for a tourist-oriented airline but I can’t help wondering if it might put off some stuffy business class passengers a bit.

  20. I thought this was a “where is Walley” joke. Why would anyone apart from the very desperate and cost driven get on a aircraft that looks like that. I am certain the person who thought this up and the CEO who approved it will be gone within 3 years. These people scare me because what is wrong with their airline that they have to keep re-inventing it for another re-birth.

  21. Condors have excelled with this wonderful paint job.It’s about time airlines smartened up their airplanes.Looking forward to seeing the A330 Neos crossing over where Ilive

  22. Condor’s new colors reminds me of prisoners escaped from a chain gang of yesteryear but certainly very recognized

  23. @LBBG3: note that these are two different aircraft, the yellow one is an A321 whereas the green one is an A330; not just longer but with a larger tail

  24. Love the new liveries. Like the days of Braniff Airlines.
