taiwanese airline company EVA air has delved into a collaborative project with japanese toy manufacturer sanrio to decorate the exteriors
of three of their planes with the image of cartoon cat character hello kitty. the three distinct feline motifs decorate the fleet of A330-300 airbus
aircrafts flying highly-trafficked routes in asia. beginning in taipei’s taoyuan international airport and ending in either sapporo or guam,
individuals come take to the air in a ‘magic jet’. the ‘global jet’ design connects hong kong and tokyo to taiwan while ‘apple jet’ planes fly between
taipei, seoul and fukoka– each plane shuttling their passengers in totally immersive cute kitten style.

from the moment individuals begin their interaction with EVA air in regards to these particular routes in taipei, the passenger is greeted
by EVA air employees sporting hello kitty gear at a bright pink counter. travelers then begin the check-in process with electronic kiosks,
light boxes, boarding passes, baggage tickets and identification all covered in the cute saniro character’s likeliness. once having boarded the plane,
passengers are seated in chairs with headrests and pillows also picturing the face of the cartoon cat. as flight attendants begin in-flight service,
customers have a choice of over 100 items designed specifically for the airlines including meal time, entertainment or toiletrie items to limited
edition duty-free products
all decorated with the beloved cartoon cat in a red bow.

the concept that inspires the apple jet is hello kitty loves apples. apples care very close to hello kitty’s heart. she is five apples tall
and weighs three apples. her favorite food is her mother’s homemade apple pie. depicted along the fuselage of this aircraft are
hello kitty and her friends, who happily share their sweet apples with EVA air’s passengers
