Is there some relation between Singapore Airlines and Mandarin Airlines ? Both logos and letter styles looks similar. Sorry if this is too obvious or discussed before... Thanks.

I'm not sure but I don't think so.
SQ planes are registered in Singapore
Mandarin aircrafts are registered in Mainland China

The similarity of font could just be coincidence.

According to JP Fleets, mandarin is a subsiary of China Airlines - Taiwan! IATA code AE, operates fleet of Dirnier 228, Fokker 50, Fokker 100 and 3 x B738.

Mandarin was used to operate China Airlines flights to Australia/NZ/Canada and various other places in europe where CI could not display the ROC (Taiwan) flag on its old livery because of political restrictions by Beijing on those countries regarding airlines from Taiwan.
Now that CIs new livery does not have a flag and Beijing is not as anal now about the problem as before, Mandarin has been relegated to domestic Taiwan services (having also taken over Formosa Airlines) and some charters to the far east.
SQ have nuthin to do with Mandarin (or CI).

You'll find some 747-400s in Madarin Airlines colors in the database as well as a trashed MD-11 if I'm not mistaken. They have nothing to do with SQ. They're a Taiwan based airline.


I want the European Union flag on airliners.net!
