SINGAPORE – Changi Airport is set to welcome the first commercial aircraft to be decorated with Star Wars livery on Nov 12, 2015 and fans here will stand a chance to get on board the jet without the need to buy a ticket.
The R2-D2TM All Nipon Airways (ANA) jet would make a special visit here to greet some very lucky fans, Changi Airport and ANA said in a joint statement today.
The statement said the first in a series of three Star Wars-themed planes by ANA and The Walt Disney Co (Japan) Ltd, the R2-D2TM ANA jet dressed as the robust droid from Star Wars, was unveiled last month to much global fanfare.
“This special flight to Singapore, chartered by travel agency, JTB Japan, will make a brief two-night stop at Changi Airport, where an extraordinary event will be held for fans on Nov 14, 2015,” it said.
From now until Oct 25, 2015, Star Wars fans in Singapore can win a pair of tickets each by participating in online contests held on ANAâ€™s website and Changi Airportâ€™s Facebook page.
ANAâ€™s Vice President of Marketing and Sales Asia & Oceania, Mitsuo Tomita, said the R2-D2TM ANA jet has received tremendous interest from around the globe, and the company was delighted to be able to partner Changi Airport to share this exclusive experience with fans in Singapore. – BERNAMA
