Arguably one of the coolest things airlines can do is to come up with special liveries, which will not only attract the attention of potential customers sitting in airports across the globe, but will also allow airlines to partner with other companies in marketing campaigns. Japan’s Star Alliance carrier, ANA, announced earlier this year that it would be adding several new Star Wars-themed liveries to its fleet, which will soon be flying in the skies with these other themed aircraft.
The newest addition to that list is WestJet’s Frozen-themed plane, which is set to circulate through the airline’s entire network. The front of the plane features a summer setting with the film’s beloved character, Olaf, on a beach, and then transitions to a colder, more Frozen setting at the rear of the plane. But the theme doesn’t stop with the exterior of the aircraft. The designers also implemented the summer-to-winter transition from the front to the back of the interior of the plane.
The redesign of the aircraft took place in Fort Worth, Texas, over the course of 21 days with six painters working in 12-hour shifts who used 643.5 litres of paint in 23 colors — five for the umbrella alone. Sparkles were added to the paint so the aircraft shimmers as it moves. The interior of the plane features decals and headrest covers that mimic the warm-to-cold (front-to-back) decal that’s on the exterior of the plane, and the 54 separate overhead bins each have a unique Frozen decal.
It’s a good move for WestJet, and is easily one of our favorite themed plane liveries in the sky. I mean, how could you not love Olaf?
