'Purrfect' travel option? Hello Kitty flights launching in Singapore

Taiwanese airline EVA Air will launch nine Hello Kitty-themed chartered flights from Singapore to Taipei this December - a first for the company.

SINGAPORE: You’ve queued up for the figurines at McDonald's, bought all the stationary, even visited the theme parks in Japan - so what’s left to buy when you already have tonnes of Hello Kitty merchandise?

How about a ride onboard a Hello Kitty plane with EVA Air? The Taiwanese airline is launching nine Hello Kitty chartered flights from Singapore to Taipei this December for the first time; and you can finally get yourself a seat on one them.

The airline introduced its Hello Kitty flights back in 2005 and has flown these planes from Taiwan to Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Guam and the United States. Each Hello Kitty flight is a full-on session to indulge your inner Hello Kitty freak — from a Hello Kitty boarding pass and baggage stickers when you first check in, to limited edition Hello Kitty duty-free products available on board.

Besides Hello Kitty-shaped food and pillows, the experience even extends to your private business: “Visits to the restroom will guarantee a unique Hello Kitty experience with hand-washing liquid, hand lotion, tissues and even toilet rolls,” ran the official statement.

The nine departure dates for the Hello Kitty flights are Dec 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19 and 20. Tickets are sold exclusively at the following agents: Chan Brothers Travel, CS Travel, CTC Travel, Dynasty Travel, Green Holidays and New Shan Travel.
