Taipei, April 18 (CNA) Low-cost carrier Tigerair Taiwan has announced plans to sell nonfungible tokens (NFT) of images of its tiger mascot.

In a statement Monday, Tigerair said that the NFTs, which are being produced in cooperation with Taiwan's largest cryptocurrency trading platform MaiCoin, would go on sale in May.

According to the carrier, those who buy the NFTs will also get the chance to go on a trip to France to take part in the delivery of an A320neo.

In addition, buyers will also get the right to fly with Tigerair in unoccupied seats as a crew member by paying taxes only.

Tigerair Chairman Chen Han-ming (陳漢銘) said that NFTs, a unique cryptographic token that can be associated with reproducible digital files such as photos, videos, and audio, were beginning to be seen as a viable way to sell digital art.
