CAL to dis­play Ori­en­tal-style Boe­ing in Paris

The China Post - - BUSINESS -

China Air­lines (CAL, ), Tai­wan’s lead­ing in­ter­na­tional car­rier, has said that it will dis­play its Boe­ing 777-300ER with an Ori­en­tal­look cabin style at the up­com­ing Paris Air Show 2015.

In­vited by U.S.-based air­craft maker Boe­ing, CAL will show­case the de­sign of its Boe­ing 777-300ER at the air show, one of the world’s largest, which is sched­uled to kick off June 15 and run through June 21.

CAL took de­liv­ery of the first of the planes in Oc­to­ber 2014. The air­plane has a brand new in­te­rior de­sign con­cept that com­bines Chi- nese tra­di­tion with mod­ern ameni­ties with a “unique and beau­ti­ful Ori­en­tal look,” ac­cord­ing to CAL.

The in­te­rior de­sign fea­tures Song Dy­nasty-style art de­pict­ing the works of the pe­riod’s fa­mous poet Lu You.

The air­line has shown the air­craft’s de­sign de­tails, in­clud­ing of­fer­ing “a taste of Tai­wan” in the Sky Lounge, with cof­fee and tea served along­side beloved Tai­wanese treats like pineap­ple cakes.

CAL Chair­man Sun Huangh­siang ( ) and the car­rier’s chief in­te­rior designer Ray Chen ( ) will at­tend the Paris Air Show to in­tro­duce the de­sign to in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors.

Ray Con­ner, pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Boe­ing Com­mer­cial Air­planes, gave the de­sign a thumbs-up, de­scrib­ing it as one of the most beau­ti­ful de­sign works among the 777s.

CAL’s de­sign has won sev­eral in­te­rior de­sign awards at home and abroad, in­clud­ing the prom­i­nent Red Dot De­sign Award and the Golden Pin De­sign Award.

So far, CAL has re­ceived five Boe­ing 777- 300ERs, as­sign­ing them to serve routes from Tai­wan to Los An­ge­les, New York, Shang­hai and Hong Kong.
