EVA takes special Hello Kitty Joyful Dream Jet flight for Taiwan Father’s Day

August 11, 2020 Aviation No Comments Email Email

EVA Air planned a special Hello Kitty flight BR5288 for Saturday, August 8, 2020 as a fun way for passengers to celebrate Taiwan’s Father’s Day. In addition to giving passengers themed services throughout the approximately 3 hr. flight, EVA worked with Hello Kitty parent Sanrio to create a festive atmosphere and ample photo and selfie opportunities.

“We were thrilled with the response to this special Hello Kitty flight,” said EVA Air President Clay Sun. “Tickets sold out as soon as we made them available. Passengers were so enthusiastic that we scheduled a second flight for August 15 and it is already fully booked.”

EVA expressed appreciation for passengers and the desire to get back to traveling. “Passenger support for our Taipei-to-Taipei flight experience not only shows strong desire to fly and travel but also encourages us to sustain services through our COVID-19 lockdowns and difficulties. Like everyone, we hope this pandemic ends soon and look forward to the day our valued passengers can again fly with confidence as they delight in the many joys of travel,” Sun continued.

EVA operated the Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) – Taoyuan International Airport flight with its Hello Kitty Joyful Dream Jet, an Airbus A330-300 configured with 30 seats in Business Class and 279 in Economy. The flight departed TPE at 10:15 a.m. and returned at 1:15 p.m. From TPE, the aircraft flew north before turning south, then east, heading over to Japan’s Ryukyu Islands and back to travel the rest of the way down Taiwan’s dramatic East Coast to the island’s southern tip. For the return to TPE, the flight reversed its course, enabling passengers on both sides of the cabin to enjoy the views.

From check-in until the flight ended, EVA and Sanrio inspired family fun. Father’s Day flight passengers were welcomed at check-in with a colorful banner and photo opportunity. Past security, they were invited to enjoy the exclusive “EVA Air Hello Kitty Joyful Dream Lounge” where they could take selfies with Hello Kitty and her adorable friends, including Pompompurin, Bad Badtz-Maru, Keroppi and Cinnamoroll, or surround themselves with more Sanrio characters in a colorful backdrop.

EVA flight BR5288 attracted Hello Kitty fans, aviation enthusiasts and families, looking for a special way to thank dads. “In the past, we celebrated Father’s Day at a restaurant but this time, we chose to take EVA’s Joyful Dream flight. The Hello Kitty Jet experience and dining in the air with my family made this our most memorable Father’s Day,” passenger Shen Ming-Chu said. “We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful chirashi don created by Michelin 3-star Chef Motokazu Nakamura and EVA’s classic, delicious braised beef noodles. The chocolate fondant cookie was a nice finish for the meal.”

         Mrs. Shen echoed other passengers’ sentiments as she described EVA’s Taiwan Father’s Day experience.

“My husband was very happy with his meal, our kids were excited to take photos with Sanrio characters and I finally had the opportunity for some duty-free shopping,” Mrs. Shen continued. “At the same time, we enjoyed some of Taiwan’s most beautiful landmarks and scenery. It was a new way to celebrate Father’s Day and our family will treasure it.”

EVA gave passengers gift bags filled with decks of Sanrio Family playing cards, a Hello Kitty postcard, a Hello Kitty ball-point pen, an EVA Air Home Delivery Shopping discount code and an I-Free Global Data SIM card. Every Business Class passenger received a hard-case Ferragamo amenity kit and those in Economy got the popular Kipling soft bags, both typically reserved for long-haul flights. EVA also offered a 30% discount on duty-free product pre-orders, a 32% discount off of selected items and an additional 15% off of all purchases of two items. After the plane returned to TPE, EVA presented keepsake Hello Kitty Jet flight certificates passengers could attach to their boarding passes.
