The China Airlines documentary on the painting of the “Pikachu Jet CI” livery went online. The camera offers a look behind the scenes of the first time that “full body spray painting” was used on this A321neo narrowbody passenger aircraft.
A charity micro-trip was held yesterday (9/30) by China Airlines “Pikachu Jet CI”, the carrier’s first A321neo, with aircraft number B-18101. With China Airlines President Kao Shing-Hwang as the tour guide for the day, the flight took off from Taoyuan Airport at 11:00AM and flew north over Miyako-jima, Okinawa, and Kagoshima, greeting Japan at long last.
The one-day micro-trip aboard “Pikachu Jet CI” scheduled for September 30 will give the general public a chance to see the Pokémon up close. The flight will take off from Taoyuan Airport and land at Taipei-Songshan Airport. Only 80 seats are available and bookings start on September 12. The “Pikachu Jet CI” will formally greet Pokémon fans when it makes its first flight on the Taipei (Songshan) - Tokyo (Haneda) route on October 2.
