Book Your Next Flight On A Hello Kitty Plane

  • All Ages

Air travel just got a whole lot cuter! EVA AIR seriously has Hello Kitty-themed planes, and you can book a flight on one! With international flights now operating, this little cat is continuing to prove she means big business. 

Purrrfect Commitment To Theme

Flights depart from Tapei, the capital city of Taiwan, and travel around the world to destinations including Hong Kong, Paris, and even Houston, Texas. Instead of the airlines usual orange, green and white colour scheme, the "joyful dream jets" will be embossed with cartoon characters of all sorts, including Hello Kitty herself. The Sanrio (the creators of Hello Kitty and various other cartoon critters) and EVA AIR collaboration has really gone all out on their commitment to theme: you'll check-in at a pink and Hello Kitty themed area at the Taiwan airport, be given Hello Kitty luggage tags and boarding passes, and be ushered onboard by flight attendants donning Hello Kitty aprons. Once inside the jet, you'll find Hello Kitty headrests, Hello Kitty toilet paper in the bathrooms, Hello Kitty eating utensils, Hello Kitty toiletries, Hello Kitty napkins, tissues, pillows, Hello Kitty themed and packaged food, and just about everything else.
