Presenting “Frozen” – The Plane

Canadian airline, WestJet, unveiled its newest airplane – a “Frozen” themed 737 inspired by the Disney animated film.  I have to admit, it looks pretty cool. Beloved characters Anna, Elsa and Olaf are all featured.

And if all of that was not good enough, the inside of the plane is “Frozen” themed too!

You can check out a great video of the plane’s transformation below, and maybe, if you fly WestJet, and you’re lucky, you just might end up on the “Frozen” jet which will be flown throughout the airline’s network.

Some fun facts about the “Frozen” plane from the good folks at WestJet:

  • The aircraft was painted in Fort Worth, Texas.
  • The paint team included team members from Canada, the United States and Germany. They watched Frozen to get them into the spirit before work began.
  • The job took 21 days of 12-hour rotations involving a constant crew of six painters working 24/7.
  • Sparkles were added to the paint in sections to add shimmer and shine as the aircraft moves.
  • An airbrush artist was brought in to work on details around the sun, water and castle.
  • The inside of the aircraft has decals and headrest covers that mimic the cold-to-warm (back-to-front) theme on the outside of the aircraft.
  • There are 54 separate overhead bin doors on the aircraft and each has a unique Frozen decal
