China Airlines is the flag carrier of the Republic of China. The airline isn't completely state owned but is 54% owned by the China Aviation Development Foundation which belongs to the Republic of China. Unlike the other government-owned corporations in the Republic of China, the CEO of China Airlines doesn't report to the Legislative Yuan. The airline started prepared flights between Taiwan and mainland China on July, 2008. Most flights serving this market are concentrated at Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing, and HK.
China Airlines is predicted to become a full member of SkyTeam. Talks between the airline and the coalition started in 2007. As of June 2009 the average age of the China Airlines fleet is 6.7 years. China Airlines has the world's biggest fleet of Boeing 747-400Fs. 2 of their earliest 747-400s ( B-18271 and B-18272 ) have been given to Boeing and converted to Boeing LCFs for transport of 787 parts.
In return, 4 new 747-400s were brought to China Airlines. The livery of one of the new 747s ( B-18210 ) is a mix of the China Airlines plum blossom tail and Boeing's Dreamliner colours design.
