CHARLESTON, the United States - China's Xiamen Airlines on Friday received its first aircraft bearing the UN (United Nations) message of sustainable development, hoping to promote the message worldwide.
The Boeing aircraft was painted with a UN-sanctioned livery featuring the symbol of the 17-point Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and inscriptions in both Chinese and English.
Zhao Dong, president of Xiamen Airlines, told the delivery ceremony that his company is committed to sustainable development, especially after becoming a partner of the UN to promote the agenda in early 2017.
