The second Pokemon special livery to be flown by Japanese carrier ANA has made its maiden flight from Tokyo’s Haneda airport to London Heathrow (LHR/EGLL).
The special collaboration between ANA and Pokemon has now been expanded with the new Eevee Jet NH, a Boeing 777-300ER (JA784A).
Designed to show that Eevee can evolve into different forms, the special livery shows Eevee and its Evolutions, such as Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon, are depicted decisively moving forward into the future together with Pikachu.
ANA is Japan’s largest airline and has been rated 5 stars for the last 10 years. The carrier expects to operate the Eevee Jet NH for 5 years.
Senior Director of Marketing at The Pokémon Company International Peter Murphy “Partnering with ANA to launch this Eevee Jet NH as the newest addition to the Pokémon Air Adventures programme has been a fantastic collaboration for us and brings us a step closer to our goal of bringing the world together through Pokémon. The Eevee-themed aircraft embodies the spirit of exploration and adventure that Pokémon is known for and we are glad we could bring this magical experience to passengers on their journeys between Tokyo and London.”
Executive Vice President EMEA of ANA Katsuya Goto “It is with great joy and excitement that we continue our partnership with Pokémon with this new livery, as well as being part of the wider Pokémon Air Adventures.
“It is a great pleasure to welcome passengers at London Heathrow for Eevee Jet NH’s first flight. We hope that many of our European customers will fly the Eevee Jet NH and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience to Japan!”
The collaboration is about bringing joy back to passengers when flying, something ANA is committed to now travel restrictions are easing.
“Pokémon Air Adventures” seeks to connect people with the world of Pokémon, showcasing the companies’ commitment to providing pleasurable and joyful travel experiences for all passengers.
