A Japanese airport is offering simulated around-the-world “jet” trips with a Hello Kitty flight attendant.
Travel retail group Enleysha Co has opened the Hello Kitty’s Happy Flight amusement outlet along the connecting path on the third floor of the New Chitose Airport‘s terminal building in Hokkaido. It is the first Japanese attraction of its type, with the simulated trip taking visitors to meet Sanrio characters in international settings.
The outlet includes a shop selling original products and Sanrio character merchandise, a Sanrio character cafe and a free space where children can play.
Visitors enter a projection mapping theatre that presents Sanrio characters in Europe, the South Pole, America and Asia. There are also photo ops with the characters.
On the third floor of the terminal, the attraction covers 1290 sqm along the Smile Road connecting path. There is an admission fee, and regular visitors can buy an annual passport.
