The plane took off on the same day and departed from Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport to Chengdu, Sichuan, the hometown of the giant panda CIIE mascot Jin Bao in Chengdu, China.
This jet is decorated with elements of the China International Import Expo, and its mascot is a four-leaf clover.
"Eastern Airlines chose the Boeing 777-300ER with the largest capacity, the longest endurance and the most advanced cabin facilities in our fleet, as the world's first CIIE-themed aircraft," said Xi Sheng, Vice President of Eastern Airlines.
The themed aircraft carries information about Chinese culture and the entire country. The cabin is also equipped with various CIIE elements, including video clips and virtual reality applications.
