German Airline Condor Debuts Whimsical Striped Airplanes

In opposition to the bland exteriors of most airplanes at commercial aviation companies, German airline Condor has unveiled colorful candy-striped designs for their aircraft. Condor’s Berlin-based creative agency, Vision Alphabet, looked to “parasols, bath towels and beach chairs”  to inform the design, according to a statement, and that whimsy—which is intended to inspire nostalgia for past vacations—is evident. The first striped craft in the fleet already took flight on 5 April, from Frankfurt, Germany to Lanzarote in the Canary Islands.
