China Airlines has released an image of a special livery which will feature on its 14th and final A350 aircraft, in partnership with manufacturer Airbus.

The aircraft features China Airlines’ blue corporate identity interwoven with Airbus’ “classic carbon fibre pattern”, along with airline’s red plum blossom design on the tailfin.

The carrier said that “The combination of high-tech style together with the beauty of traditional weaving symbolizes the fusion of Eastern and Western cultures”. The A350-900 aircraft will enter service by this winter.

The livery is the latest in a series of special designs featuring on China Airlines’ A350 aircraft, including two avian-themed designs depicting birds endemic to Taiwan.

In December 2017 the carrier launched nonstop flights between Taipei and London Gatwick, operated by the Airbus A350.
