ANA Airlines, which is the largest airline of Japan, by revenue and passenger numbers has launched a new series of aircraft with the Star Wars edition. It will be added to its existing fleet of three aircrafts.
ANA will deliver a C-3PO ANA Jet with an iconic C-3PO on a Boeing 777-200, as partial of a formerly announced Star Wars Project, a five-year agreement with The Walt Disney Company (Japan) Ltd. The C-3PO pattern was denounced to Star Wars fans during a Star Wars Celebration Europe eventuality in London, and a aircraft skeleton to start drifting on domestic routes in Japan from a finish of Mar 2017.
The Star Wars livery is in line with ANA’s strategy to further enhance its international presence. With demand increasing around the world for flights to Japan, ANA is committed to raising the profile of the ANA brand in the global market through innovative partnerships and branding opportunities. The partnership with Star Wars, beloved by audiences in Japan and around the globe, is a perfect match as Japan’s largest airline seeks to connect travellers around the world through this project.
The sci-fi paint schemes come as a part of ANA’s ongoing Star Wars Project a five-year agreement with The Walt Disney Company that now holds the rights for the Star Wars franchise.
In addition to the unique paint schemes, ANA’s Star Wars Project also calls for movie-inspired images to be added to headrest covers, paper napkins and cups onboard the Star Wars aircraft.
C-3PO, together with R2-D2, has been a much-loved character since its appearance in the original Star Wars movie series. The C-3PO motif, which includes detailed body parts and wiring is decorated onto the aircraft’s fuselage.
