Star Wars is Flying to Vancouver…Literally

Attention Star Wars fans: the saga continues, and this time the Force is making its way to Canada. To top it off, you can experience your next air travel experience ‘Star Wars’ style. No Jedi mind tricks here… it’s really happening!

Japan’s largest airline All Nippon Airways (ANA) has announced that a total of three if its aircraft will be decorated with Star Wars-themed graphics to celebrate this winter’s release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.

The R2-D2 jet will make its inaugural flight from Tokyo Haneda International Airport to Vancouver International Airport on October 18 and then serve other international flights to Japan.

As part of a five-year promotional licensing contract with the Walt Disney Company, the entire ANA international fleet will have the first six films in the series available for viewing on the in-flight entertainment system. This will be the first time any Star Wars films have been included in any in-flight entertainment system, according to the airline. In addition to the exterior theme, the planes will have Star Wars headrest covers and other themed amenities.

ANA began serving Vancouver International Airport in March 2014 with a daily, non-stop service to Haneda Airport using a Boeing 767-300 aircraft. The flight schedule for the Star Wars-themed Boeing 777-300ER and Boeing 767-300 will be released at a later date – one of the planes is expected to serve the Vancouver route for several weeks in 2016.
