Japanese low-cost regional carrier Air Do is set to fly the skies with its new Pokémon Vulpix Jet Hokkaido.
The airplane boasts of a design that focuses on Vulpix, plastering the Pokémon and and its ice-type counterpart on both sides of the vehicle. Its interior also promises to follow the theme, with the plane seats’ headrest covers featuring the Vulpix, the beverages served in Vulpix paper cups and the cabin crew sporting Vulpix aprons. To top it off, passengers can purchase limited edition postcards and stickers.
“Alolan Vulpix is known as the Fox Pokémon and thrives in snow mountains,” the official Pokémon site reads. “It was chosen to promote Hokkaido, one of Japan’s snowiest regions. Vulpix, also in the Fox Pokémon category, assists Alolan Vulpix with showcasing the best of what Hokkaido has to offer residents and visitors.”
The Vulpix Jet Hokkaido’s route will begin on December 1 from Haneda Airport in Tokyo and will fly to destinations in Hokkaido including the New Chitose Airport, Asahikawa Airport and Hakodate Airport. While foreign tourists are currently not allowed to enter Japan due to COVID-19 restrictions, they will still get the chance to fly on the plane as it will be in service for at least five years.
