Taiwanese flag carrier China Airlines says it has finished painting six aircraft with a special 60th anniversary livery.
The airline unveiled its first Airbus A350-900 with the 60th anniversary logo and livery in April as part of its 60th anniversary celebrations. The final Boeing 747-400 aircraft to feature the livery left the hangar today and will make its inaugural flight tomorrow as CI160 on the Taipei-Seoul route.
China Airlines said the number “60” in its corporate colours of blue and red served as the inspiration for the 60th anniversary logo. The logo in the shape of “GO” and the infinity sign “∞” has been applied to aircraft in its A350-900, A330-300, 737-800, 777-300ER, 747F (freighter) and 747-400(passenger) fleets.
Business Traveller Asia-Pacific has contacted China Airlines for more information on the newly painted aircraft.
Skyteam member China Airlines was founded in 1959 and now operates a fleet of 112 aircraft.
It is common for airlines to paint their aircraft with special liveries to celebrate milestone anniversaries. Australian flag carrier Qantas recently unveiled its 100th anniversary livery, while Bahrani carrier Gulf Air also unveiled a 70th anniversary livery.
