Naturally EVA Air is just as psyched about the freshly painted planes as Hello Kitty fans, and they threw a "Happy Magic Party" to kick off the new partnership with Sanrio, Hello Kitty's parent company. It was there they announced that the Hello Kitty experience would be more than seeing your cute plane's new look:
Following the precedent established with EVA’s two first-generation Hello Kitty Jets, the airline is applying the irrepressible character’s theme to the design of more than 100 in-flight service items. At check-in, passengers on these aircraft are greeted by Hello Kitty boarding passes and baggage stickers. Onboard, they’ll discover Hello Kitty headrest covers, tissue, paper cups, utensils, milk bottles, snacks, hand-washing liquid, hand lotion, meals and ice cream. Flight attendants wear Hello Kitty aprons and special insignias on their uniforms. And at intervals, EVA will offer a series of limited-edition Hello Kitty duty-free products, enabling fans to acquire collectibles and enjoy happy journeys at the same time.
