MIYAZAKI: Solaseed Air unveiled a model of its second special jet featuring characters from the popular anime and game series Pocket Monster, or Pokemon, at the prefectural government office of Miyazaki, southwestern Japan, on Wednesday.
The Japanese carrier, based in Miyazaki, will operate the special aircraft for three years from early March on 14 routes, including one between Miyazaki and Tokyo’s Haneda Airport.
The special aircraft is part of a collaboration project between the prefecture and the Pokemon series developer, Pokemon Co.
Pokemon characters painted on the aircraft will include “Nassy,” or Exeggutor, and “Alola Nassy,” or Alolan Exeggutor, both appointed as “Miyazaki-loving” characters.
The aircraft will also feature sun, waves, and bougainvillea flower images, evoking the prefecture’s tropical atmosphere.
