Star Wars Jet
The R2-D2™ ANA JET Fan Appreciation Flight event was held at Haneda Airport. A total of 91 passengers were selected—42 chosen from the Sightseeing Flight Campaign, where people sent in pictures of themselves in STAR WARS™ cosplay, and the other 49 chosen from the AMC Members’ Campaign.
Passengers were dressed up as STAR WARS™ characters for this event. Many characters in costume gathered at the airport waiting to board. All participants were given a boarding pass with an R2-D2 design, given to all passengers of the R2-D2™ ANA JET. A limited edition pass was issued for this event. The event began with a ceremony in front of the aircraft. After opening remarks from Mr. Inada, the head of marketing at ANA, the participants gathered for a group photo with the themed jet.
