About the Pikachu Jet BC2 and an Overview of the Cabin

The first Pikachu Jet (BC1) began service in June 2021 as part of the "Pokémon Air Adventures" Project. This video introduces the second Pikachu Jet, the BC2, which entered service on May 30, 2022.

It's a great video where you can see the No. 1 and No. 2 Pikachu Jets together.

Pikachu, the famous Pokémon character, has been featured in video games and anime to express the joy of adventure. The "Pokémon Air Adventures" project was created with the aim of promoting the aviation and tourism industries with such Pokémon.

The Pikachu Jet flies primarily to and from Okinawa and to airports served by Skymark flights.

The design of the Pikachu Jet BC2 is inspired by the Okinawan sea. The design is fun and cute, with a large Wailord, Pikachu, Shaymin, Magikarp, and other Pokémon all over the aircraft! It's really photogenic and great for taking Instagram photos!

Commemorative medals, mini pouches, and model planes are available for purchase on board the Pikachu Jet as well. There is also a special offer where children will receive a keychain plush of the specially painted plane (while supplies last).

Keep an eye out for Pokémon on boarding passes, flight attendants' aprons, in-flight decorations (headrest covers, seat guides, etc.), equipment, in-flight services, and more.

Pikachu can even be seen making an appearance in the Skymark uniform!
