Chicago welcomes EVA’s Hello Kitty jet

Passengers flying between Taipei and Chicago will now be able to travel on EVA Air’s Hello Kitty aircraft.

The airline’s “Hello Kitty Shining Star Jet” – a Boeing 777-300ER painted with cartoon livery and kitten-themed interiors – embarked on its inaugural flight to Chicago on 31 May 2017.

It will now operate the route three times a week (outbound from Taipei on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays), with the remaining four weekly flights being served by a standard 777.

The Hello Kitty jets are the result of a partnership between EVA and Japanese animation studio Sanrio. EVA currently flies six cartoon-themed aircraft on routes within Asia, as well as on long-haul routes to Paris and Chicago. The 777 offers three cabin classes, plus Wi-Fi.
