(Relaxnews) – The Taiwanese airline Eva Air, which has operated Hello Kitty flights between Taipei and Los Angeles since September 2013, will launch the same offer to and from Paris from October 29. From the plane’s exterior to its seats, not to mention the flight attendants’ uniforms, every detail of this special service is related to the famous Sanrio character.

The Taiwanese carrier partnered with the Japanese owners of the Hello Kitty licence to create what is likely the world’s most adorable airplane.

Since September 2013, Eva Air has flown three Hello Kitty flights per week between Taipei and Los Angeles. To give more fans a chance to try out the experience, and to celebrate the cute charater’s 40th birthday, the airline will begin operating its Hello Kitty plane between Paris and Taipei this fall.

Before boarding, passengers can admire a family of Sanrio characters on the plane’s exterior. On the inside, the headrests and pillows are adorned with the face of the bow-wearing icon. Flight attendants wear pink aprons with the same cute whiskers. The meal trays have also been customized to match the theme, even in business class.

In the lavatories, the soaps and lotions are also branded Hello Kitty. Of course, the character’s most devout fans will have the chance to take home a few goodies.

From October 29, three Hello Kitty flights per week will be offered between Taipei and Paris. Reservations are already open at evakitty.evaair.com. Prices start at €802.

Eva Air and Sanrio also operate other Hello Kitty flights within Asia. A total of five planes have been decked out to delight fans of the character.
