Masalu! Taiwan China Airlines Airbus

This China Airlines Airbus focuses on one of Taiwan's many indigenous groups to draw attention to the indigenous villages as tourist attractions. Tourism has become an important source of income for Taiwan's native tribes, many of whom have been marginalized throughout their history.

The particular scenes used on this A330, which flies internationally, show different traditions of a native Paiwan tribe wedding ceremony. The plane also has indigenous elements inside. There are smaller illustrations in the passenger cabin, and the headrest coverings have tribal designs on them.
