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.

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.
