The Pikachu Jet TR commences the first phase of TPC’s Pokemon Air Adventures with the aim of encouraging international tourists to travel to Singapore. The two parties unveiled the livery for the Pikachu Jet TR at a press conference held in Singapore Changi Airport earlier today. As part of its exterior design, the airplane features Pokemon-related imagery specifically custom-made for Singapore. The Pikachu Jet TR, a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with a capacity of 375 seats, is scheduled for its inaugural flight on the 9th of September to Tokyo, Japan.

Passengers can expect to book a trip between Singapore, Tokyo, and Seoul, with flights departing bi-monthly from Changi Airport, Terminal 1. The fare prices for one-way tickets start from S$333 for a trip to Tokyo and S$231 for a trip to Seoul (inclusive of taxes). The routes of the Pikachu Jet TR will be reviewed periodically and customers can check out the latest details on Scoot’s website.

Offering an enjoyable and inclusive travel experience, passengers can also look forward to inflight amenities bearing Pokemon designs, including original merchandise such as tote bags, lanyards, bucket hats, and a collector’s edition of the aircraft model donned with the special livery. These are available for purchase during flight bookings through Scoot’s website and mobile app from the 9th of September, and onboard the inaugural flight. Additionally, a selection of specially curated Japanese inflight meals have been prepared to support this Pikachu Jet TR launch for the coming two quarters and are also available for pre-order.

Leslie Thng, the CEO, of Scoot, said, “We are excited and humbled to be the first ASEAN airline to partner with The Pokemon Company to connect customers across our network on the Pikachu Jet TR Together with one of the key franchises in the world, Scoot will offer customers a one-of-a-kind experience on the Pikachu Jet TR through a series of complementary inflight amenities, merchandise, meals, and activities. This will add fillip to the travel industry that is still recovering from the effects of the Covid pandemic, and we hope that this will help reignite the passion for travel and adventure.”

Susumu Fukunaga, Corporate Officer, The Pokemon Company shared, “The Pokemon Air Adventures Project was initiated with the intention of creating something special for our community during these uncertain times, providing excitement to everyone the Pokemon way, and to the industry that has been affected by the situation in more ways than one. Although the pandemic situation is still unpredictable, we hope this event will be a catalyst for people to kickstart their travels once again as borders reopen and life returns to normal.

With this project, we hope to contribute to the tourism and transportation infrastructure industries in various regions and that the Pikachu Jet TR will be a symbol of this connectivity among communities and bring joy to everyone involved.”

Chang Chee Pey, Assistant Chief Executive, Marketing Group, Singapore Tourism Board, said, “As borders reopen, we look forward to welcoming visitors back to Singapore. This partnership between The Pokemon Company and Scoot is timely and offers yet another reason to visit Singapore and enjoy our new and compelling offerings. We encourage the tourism industry to continue forging such innovative partnerships and reimagined travel experiences.”

The inaugural flight on the Pikachu Jet is set for the 9th of September 2022. The Pikachu Weekend and Pokemon GO will occur from the 18th to the 20th of November.
