It looks like there will be more ANA Star Wars planes taking to the skies in the coming months now that Japan’s largest airline has inked an unprecedented tie-up with the Star Wars franchise. Following the R2-D2 motif All Nippon Airways (ANA) 787 Dreamliner, there will now be two more ANA Star Wars jets (a Boeing 767 and 777) taking off, this time with the adorned with the motifs of BB-8.
The planes are set to be a major plug for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is set to open later this year and also serve as an enticing marketing gimmick for the Japanese airline. In addition to having three Star Wars’ themed planes in their fleet, the airline will also feature the six Star Wars films on their in-flight entertainment list for their international routes as well as headrests, napkins and cups with the Star Wars theme.
The three ANA Star Wars vessels will service both domestic routes in Japan as well as international routes, specifically Japan to North America.
