FLEET UPDATE: Flybondi 737-800, LV-HKN, returned from Mexico to Argentina with new tail design on 04Nov21

Flybondi 737-800, LV-HKN (c/n 30734/2477), flew to Mexico for maintenance work in early October where its normal yelow tail color design was replaced with a white tail featuring images representative of the various provinces of Argentina that Flybondi flies to, as illustrated in this photo:

The design reportedly represents a change of livery for the Argentine LCC, which, if true, would mean that the rest of the carrier's fleet will be repainted with tail images too.

LV-HKN has seven different images on the right side of its tail but a total of eighteen images representing Argentine wildlife, natural landmarks, iconic structures and other cultural symbols, will reportedly be applied to Flybondi's fleet.

LV-HKN flew from Mexico City (MEX) to Guayaquil (GYE) and on to Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE), arriving at the Argentine capital's main international airport on 04Nov21.  The aircraft immediately went back into service with Flybondi on the morning of 05Nov21, flying 3-4 roundtrips from Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) to Argentine domestic destinations each day since then.
