EVA's first long-range Hello Kitty Jet, the Hand-in-Hand Jet has proven to be popular among travelers worldwide since its launch on regular Taipei to Los Angeles service in September 2013. The airline has operated three Hello Kitty flights a week on the route for a little more than a year while fans in Europe have persistently asked for opportunities to experience the exclusive aircraft. This is also Hello Kitty's 40th birthday. Taking her to Paris and introducing her to more fans and passengers adds to the fun of the birthday festivities.
EVA also flies five Airbus 330 Hello Kitty Jets, each with a different livery theme, to multiple destinations within Asia. The colorful jets have proven to be very successful and demand for all of these flights from travelers and fans around the world is strong.
The Hello Kitty Hand-in-Hand Jet is EVA's first painted long-haul Boeing 777-300ER. EVA teamed up with Sanrio to create the livery and in-flight service items so that they reflect the spirit of the global village and friendship across all countries. The colorful display of major Sanrio characters, holding hands the entire length of the aircraft, is designed to bridge cultural barriers and invite new friendships around the world. EVA is using the charming, lovable characters to make flying fun and spread happiness among passengers all over the globe.
EVA will operate its Hello Kitty Hand-in-Hand Jet on its regular schedule as BR87 from Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) to Paris' Charles de Gaulle (CDG) on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. On the return, it will fly as BR88, CDG-TPE on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. EVA offers a total of four weekly flights between Taipei and Paris. Passengers can book flights now through travel agents, EVA ticket offices and online, just in time to enjoy picturesque Paris in fall or, eastbound, Asia's diverse climates, cultures, foods and attractions.
