Singapore Airlines (SIA) has launched its own mahjong set.

The limited edition set is sold on KrisShop, in limited quantities, for either S$338 or 42,250 KrisFlyer miles -- if not, a lot of good miles might go to waste.

The SIA set with 148 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols has allowed the airline to get creative with its designs.

The design of the tiles clearly drew inspiration from Singapore Airlines' signature batik motif.

The batik motif is inspired by local flowers, which can be found on the tiles for flowers and seasons.

The batik motif is also manifested in other ways, such as the design on the back of tiles as well as the chips.

Contemporary design: Aircraft window is Bai Ban tile

Contemporary interpretation of the traditional mahjong symbols make for one-of-a-kind designs.

For example, the aircraft window is used to represent the Whiteboard (Bai Ban) tile, while the design of Circles was inspired by aircraft engines.

Other innovative designs include the tiles in the Bamboo suit, which are aeroplane seat maps, while the first bamboo tile is the Singapore Airlines logo.
