Inside the Hello Kitty Jets

Hello Kitty can be found on more than 100 different items in the aircraft cabin which include headrest covers, paper napkins, paper cups, cutlery, infant feeding bottles, rice cookies, and toiletries.

The flight attendants’ uniforms include a pink Hello Kitty foodservice apron and a special Hello Kitty pin.

Hello Kitty jet in-flight cuisine is made from seasonal ingredients sourced from many parts of the world. Premium Laurel Class passengers can look forward to Hello Kitty-inspired Fois Gras and pink mousse cake.

Children’s meals are served in Chef Hello Kitty boxes and contain bow tie-shaped containers. Many of the tableware items bear images of the cute feline character. 

Below are random photos taken from the EVA Air website on the interior and food for the Hello Kitty Jet.

If you visit the official EVA Air Hello Kitty Jet Travel Website, you will find a ton of information there. Most of it is directly related to the flights with schedules, amenities, videos and so on.

There are even special Hello Kitty Jet wallpaper and journals to be downloaded like the ones seen below.

Generally, after I visited the site, I spent a good 20 minutes going through the many things they have there and I think if you were a fan, you would most likely spend a few hours there.

Well, for the first of its kind in the world, I seriously wonder when Walt Disney, Doraemon or even Ben 10 will have their special planes.

If you should know, the Hello Kitty Jet has been in service since 2005 and a huge success since then. 

It is only a matter of time before some other airline collaborates with a cartoon figure to boost its airline sales. I will not be surprised if one of the top budget airlines like AirAsia takes this on.

Well, we will see soon because in 2015, the ASEAN Open Skies Policy takes effect and this would see very stiff competition among the airlines here. 

To be very honest, news like this puts a smile on my face as it is not every day that you get to read or hear about it, especially from the airline industry too.

Sometimes, I think it is awesome that the large corporations take twists like this to give consumers something different from the normal.

I think it is a very positive move which helps the brand a lot and I wish more players in the industry would practice this approach towards consumers.

Final Thoughts of the Hello Kitty Flights from Singapore

Would I fly the Hello Kitty flight from Singapore? I would if I was invited to participate as a media. Overall, just for the experience as this is absolutely one-of-a-kind but I would be caught dead posing for photos.

Bookings for these special flights worldwide can also be made from the EVA Air website. Anyway, for all Kitty fans out there, this is your one chance to experience the unique Hello Kitty Flights from Singapore this December.
