Jet with CIIE livery lands in Shanghai

A LONG-HAUL passenger aircraft with China International Import Expo-themed livery landed at Hongqiao airport in Shanghai over the weekend.

The China Southern Airlines Airbus 330-300  took off from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and landed at  Hongqiao International Airport on Saturday afternoon.

A water gate ceremony at Hongqiao airport celebrated the maiden flight of the CIIE-themed airliner.

The plane, jointly launched by the CIIE bureau and China Southern, is painted white and blue with white-and-yellow stripes. It also features the CIIE mascot, Jinbao, along with the Expo’s slogan “New Era, Shared Future.”

The aircraft aims to promote the CIIE and attract participants from across the world, according to the airline. The aircraft will operate various domestic and international flights to promote and serve the CIIE.

On the maiden flight, the flight attendants launched quizzes about the CIIE and taught passengers to paint the CIIE mascot Jinbao.

The third CIIE will be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center between November 5 and 10. China Southern will serve as a core supporting enterprise, air carrier, buyer and service provider, the Guangzhou-based carrier said. China Southern’s deals during the first and second CIIEs ranked top among the nation’s top three carriers.

The Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines has also unveiled passenger aircraft with CIIE-themed livery.
