Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) has scheduled the inaugural flight of its newest Star Wars-themed aircraft—a Boeing 777-200 featuring C-3PO, on Tokyo Haneda-Kagoshima service March 21.
The aircraft, which will continue to fly on various Japanese domestic routes, is part of the continuing ANA Star Wars Project.
According to ANA, on the C-3PO ANA JET, “passengers will experience the world of Star Wars with specially designed C-3PO paper cups and headrest covers and cabin attendants will wear C-3PO aprons.”
The C-3PO ANA JET will join ANA’s fleet of existing planes that have Star Wars characters as livery: the R2-D2 ANA JET and BB-8ANA JET both are flying on international routes, while the new C-3PO ANA JET is assigned to Japan domestic routes.
