The Boeing 767-300 is registered D-ABUF and is the first aircraft to feature the optimised livery.

While the airline has kept the "Condor" text and colouring across the fuselage, the tail has seen some significant development.

The airline has gotten rid of the well-known Thomas Cook heart, and replaced it with the Condor logo. The airline says that the reason for the livery change was for "trademark reasons" with the Thomas Cook branding.

D-ABUF has already left Germany on its first flight with the new paint scheme, bound for Cancún in Mexico.

In January 2004, Condor became a member of Thomas Cook AG, after the latter gradually acquired Lufthansa's shares in the German leisure carrier. The heart on the tail was introduced on October 1, 2013, as part of the Thomas Cook Group's plan to unify its different brands.

Following the bankruptcy of Thomas Cook, all of its airlines were at risk of ceasing operations. Condor and Thomas Cook Scandinavia (now SunClass Airlines) are the only carriers in the group still operating. Condor was granted a EUR380 million loan by the German government, saving it from bankruptcy.
