Chang An Airlines Upload Help

Wed Feb 09, 2005 10:47 am

I have a photo of a new 737-800 for Chang An Airlines that I took today at BFI. I was told Chang An Airlines is a subsidiary of some sort of Hainan Airlines. The color scheme is of a Hainan Airlines aircraft, but the titles on the aircraft are for Chang An Airlines. Hainan Airlines is not on the plane at all.

I tried searching for photos (photo search & sitewide search) of Chang An on this site, but found none. So my questions are:

1) How should this photograph be uploaded, airline wise?

2) Anyone know of any other Chang An airlines shots?

It appears that they were aquired by Hainan in 2001 and were expected to be taken over and combined with a couple other Chinese airlines to become Grand China Airlines. I do not know if this has happened yet.
They have two 737-700's leased to them from Hainan, B-5091(29091/230) and B-5092(29092/260).

Upload the name Changan Airlines.

Hope this helps...

Thanks Corey.

The photo you linked to has the airline as Changan, which I think is incorrect. Googling the airline returns Chang'An or Chang An Airlines, but not Changan.

Screeners: Should I upload this photo to be consistent with the database, or upload as Chang'An?

Boeing has it listed as Hainan Airlines. I only know this because I looked before I left work today. Don't know if that does anything for you.
