Airbus unveils China Airlines A350 carbon livery

Airbus has unveiled a special livery on China Airlines’ final A350-900.

MSN 239 rolled out onto the flightline without engines and with protective film covering its rear fuselage section and winglets last month.

The aircraft, currently registered as F-WZFU, is painted in a combination of Airbus carbon fiber colors and China Airlines  colors.

Since the protected rollout last month, Airbus has installed the two Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines and added the final paint touches. All standard test flights will be conducted before being handed to the airline.

The final registration of the aircraft – B18918 – features two 18s, which is very auspicious for good fortune.

This is the 14th and last A350 on order for China Airlines so far, however talks about a possible top-up order have been thrown around over the last few months.

China Airlines has applied a special manufacturer house livery on their aircraft before. A Boeing 777-300ER and 747-400 in their fleet received a special Boeing wave livery as seen in the photos below:

What do you think of the airline/manufacturer livery combination?

MSN 239, China Airlines’ last Airbus A350, has had its special livery unveiled! The livery is a mix of the Airbus carbon fiber theme for the A350 and the airline’s own colour scheme. All standard test and customer flights will occur under test registration F-WZFU before being handed over to the airline as B-18918. The registration chosen features two 18s which is very auspicious for good fortune. Although this is the last A350 on order for the airline, talks of a future possible top-up order have been thrown around. Comment below, what do you think of this livery?
