Taiwan independent airline Eva Air is celebrating Hello Kitty’s 40th birthday by bringing its themed aircraft to Europe. From 29th October 2014, the carrier will start flying its special edition B777-300ER between Taipei and Paris, marking the aircraft’s debut in Europe.

Offering the ‘purrfect’ travel option for families travelling with young children, Eva Air’s colourful jet is adorned with images of Hello Kitty and her friends. The theme continues onboard, with an array of cute cabin features, food menus and service items. In addition to receiving luggage tags featuring the Japanese cartoon character, together with a warm welcome from air hostesses in Hello Kitty uniforms, an Eva Air spokesperson said that Hello Kitty fans can look forward to new menus, service tray mats, napkins and Hello Kitty-themed cutlery.

The new Paris services will replace the Taipei – Los Angeles Hello Kitty route, which has been flying three flights a week since 2013. Eva Air currently flies to Paris four times a week and from October the Hello Kitty aircraft will replace three of those flights. It will depart from Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and will return from Paris Charles de Gaulle every Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

According to Eva, the Hello Kitty aircraft has been designed in partnership with the cartoon character’s creators, Sanrio, to “make flying fun and spread happiness among passengers all over the globe.”
