An exhibition named "Search for The Mortality- Egypt 2000 in Taiwan", which is conducted by "China Times" and "Crown Van Lines Corp. Ltd." in Taiwan has been started successively from February2000 and planed to last November2000 in three exhibition halls respectively located in Tai-chung, Kao-hsiung, and Taipei. The 86 pieces exhibits weighed over 28 tons include Egyptian antiques such as mummies, child, and animals.
The trait of that these priceless, extremely fragile exhibited antiques with particular dimensions( 8 pieces measures over 20 feet long and 105 inches high) has to be prevented from any slight bump or squeeze has definitely made this carriage more difficult. China Airlines is privileged to be assigned for this mission by "Hannover Museum" in Germany and has subsequently assigned executive officer to supervise the palletizing/ loading/ unloading/ warehousing process with the cargo attendants of the said museum. Two B747F freighters were arranged to carry these exhibits to Taiwan in separate and successful fulfillment has been reached finally.
The international air cargo market share and return on sales of China Airlines have used to be in the first place in Taiwan and the ranking of worldˇ¦s top ten cargo-carrying airlines has been entered as well. Meanwhile, the ISO9001 Quality Certification, which is the best testimony of its outstanding service quality has also been won by China Airlines in March 2000. Along with new inaugurated cargo service network such as Sydney, Delhi and Colombo, China Airlines has purchased 13 firm B747-400 freighters and 4 optional ones, with delivery from July 2000 to March 2007 in order to meet Taiwan's demand on air carriage ability after serving as Asia- Pacific transportation hub.
