EVA Air and Sanrio created the first generation of Hello Kitty jets in 2005 and 2006. It currently offers several Sanrio-themed aircraft, namely the Comfort Flight, Shining Star, Sanrio Family Hand in Hand, Joyful Dream, Travel Fun and Around the World.
The unique service serves routes from Taipei — via Taoyuan or Songshan International Airport– to Cebu, Tokyo, Houston, Singapore, Paris, Fukuoka, Seoul and Shanghai.
