EVA Air’s Hello Kitty air craft fly nonstop between Taipei and Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport on June 19.
The popular, animated Japanese character Hello Kitty will descend upon Houston when Taiwanese air carrier EVA Air initiates nonstop flights between Taipei and Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport, which is slated to begin on June 19.
The jetliner features paintings of Hello Kitty, Kitty White and other Sanrio cartoons on its exterior. The 333-seat aircraft used for the route will be a Boeing 777-300ER and will provide WiFi access, according to a statement from the company.
The carrier will start with three flights a week between Taipei and Houston and will increase the frequency to four flights a week on July 1.
EVA Air operates six Hello Kitty jets and five Hello Kitty airbuses.
Taiwan isn’t the only Asian country to increase nonstop service to Houston lately.
Japanese airline All Nippon Airways will also launch nonstop flights between Houston and Tokyo next year.
Meanwhile, United Airlines’ aircrafts started flying nonstop between Houston and the Bahamas earlier this month via SkyWest Airlines, which will operate the express flights.
Spirit Airlines also added 10 destinations from Houston both domestically and internationally.
