EVA Air's Hello Kitty flight made permanent to Singapore
Taiwan's EVA Air on Wednesday (Jan 7) announced it would be making its Hello Kitty flights to Singapore a permanent fixture starting June, following the "overwhelming success" of such flights in December last year.
The new scheduled flights between Changi Airport and Taipei's Taoyuan International Airport starting from Jun 21 are in addition to EVA Air's daily existing flights between both cities. There would be a new Hello Kitty theme created exclusively for the EVA Air B777-300ER aircraft, it added in its press release.
"After experiencing an overwhelming demand of our Hello Kitty jets when we introduced chartered flights between Singapore and Taipei (in December 2014), we knew Singapore had to be our first destination in South-east Asia to host our next Hello Kitty-themed aircraft," said EVA Air President Austin Cheng.
"As Singapore is a popular tourism hub, we are proud to be able to extend our flight expansion plans into Singapore."
To date, EVA Air has launched six variants of the Hello Kitty Jet on flights from Taiwan to Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Guam and Paris. Singapore will receive the seventh variant of the Hello Kitty Jet, the airline said.
