The Pikachu Jet is a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, which seats 340 economy passengers alongside 35 others in ScootPlus.

The interior and exterior of the planes are plastered with characters from the popular cartoon series such as Pikachu and Lapras.

As part of the jet’s in-flight experience, there will be Japanese-inspired meals and Pokémon-themed activities available on-board.

Fans can also purchase exclusive Pokémon-themed merchandise during flight bookings. These merchandise include lanyards, bucket hats and tote bags.
