Get ready for some kawaii awesomeness this festive season as Hello Kitty & Friends land at Changi Airport to greet their fans. Comprising eight characters, the popular Sanrio friends – Hello Kitty, Dear Daniel, Cinnamoroll, Gudetama, Little Twin Stars (Kiki and Lala), My Melody and Pompompurin – will be delighting travellers and airport visitors in person every weekend during this year-end holiday season.
Kicking-off the celebrations this evening was a first-in-Changi indoor drone show at Terminal 3 (T3), the largest of its kind in Singapore by far. Forty drones lit up the dimmed ‘sky’ like fireflies, forming various shapes such as a snowflake and a Christmas tree to wow the audience. Extending the magical moment, eight Hello Kitty and Friends broke into a song and dance in the specially-designed Mystical Garden to the delight of cheering fans. The characters bobbed along with the music while cameras flashed, bringing the atmosphere in the terminal to sizzling heights.
Mr Jayson Goh, Managing Director for Airport Operations Management at Changi Airport Group said, “With many fans looking forward to the annual year-end festive celebrations at Changi, we wanted to create something unforgettable for them. Having 40 drones ‘perform’ in an indoor setting was challenging, but we are really happy to be able to bring the Changi festive experience to a new high with this interplay between art and technology.”
Earlier in the day, an EVA Air aircraft in specially decked out livery featuring Sanrio characters had docked at Changi Airport. Invited guests got an opportunity to visit the aircraft, where Sanrio-themed in-flight meals and amenities were showcased.
