The latest color plane designed by Azul Linhas Aéreas, and the second at Disney World by the Brazilian company, is already doing tests before it arrives in Brazil.
to accompany A320neo with Mickey coatingAzul, who has been in Brazil for a few months now, will be bringing this A321neo, dressed as a Mini. The aircraft performed its first test flight today, before it was officially handed over to Azul. The painting is the result of a partnership the Brazilian airline signed with Walt Disney to celebrate 50 years of parks symbolized by Mickey Mouse and his mouse companion Minnie.
The unveiling of two more birds, as well as a pair of mice, will still be coming soon, but that should only happen next year. Until then, the A321neo with the future registration PR-YJF, called “Minnie Mouse Nas Nuvens”, and the A320neo PR-YSH will be ambassadors for Disney’s Magical World in the two companies’ campaign in Brazil.
The catch was captured on Wednesday by Dirk Groth, the photographer from Hamburg who is always on the lookout for the news at Airbus’ second major plant. Fitted up for 214 passengers, Minnie’s plane still doesn’t have a delivery date, but it will arrive after A321neo with Brazilian flag.
