China Airlines is now in its 60th year of operations and has played a pivotal role throughout the history of Taiwan aviation. To celebrate its 60th anniversary, China Airlines has revealed its liveried aircraft on an A350-900 featuring the 60th anniversary logo for the first time. The A350-900 passenger aircraft is the airline's mainstay on long-haul routes and the 60th-livery first flight on CI-24 service between Taipei and Ontario, California (U.S.) also celebrates the successful operation of this new route in the past 12 months.
The number "60" in China Airlines' corporate identity colors of blue and red served as the inspiration for the 60th anniversary logo. The logo in the shape of "GO" and the infinity symbol "∞" is planned to progressively applied to the A350-900, A330-300, 737-800, 777-300ER, 747-400 and 747-400F(freighter) fleets,inviting travelers around the world to join in sharing the 60 years of joy and growth at China Airlines. The US Ontario route introduced in 2018 allows China Airlines to serve two airports in the Greater Los Angeles region. The route has proved popular with customers due to its convenience and unique offering. Its choice as the first destination to be flown by the China Airlines 60th anniversary liveried aircraft provides ample demonstration of the carrier's commitment to the North American market.
