Shanghai Disney Resort and China Eastern Airlines jointly unveiled a new Zootopia-themed airplane, the Disney•Zootopia Express, on May 24, marking the 6th Disney-themed aircraft to join China Eastern Airlines' fleet.

"We are thrilled to join China Eastern Airlines in celebrating the opening of the world's first and only Zootopia-themed land by launching the Disney•Zootopia Express," said Joe Schott, president and general manager of Shanghai Disney Resort.

The new themed plane will give passengers an extra touch of magic as they travel, allowing guests to visit the Shanghai Disney Resort and experience the wonders of the newest land firsthand, he added.

"This year marks the 8th year of collaboration between China Eastern Airlines and Shanghai Disney Resort. All of these aircraft transport happiness, friendship, kindness and trust in the sky, bringing a wonderful travel experience to passengers," said Wan Qingchao, deputy general manager of China Eastern Airlines Co Ltd.

With a custom aircraft livery decal, the Disney•Zootopia Express is China Eastern Airlines' first Disney-themed aircraft to feature three-dimensional images of Disney characters on its exterior, according to Shanghai Disney Resort.

The entire interior of the aircraft is also decorated with themed elements, including images of luggage containers tailored for different-sized mammals, and foldout trays featuring a map of Zootopia highlighting different characters' favorite spots in the mammalian metropolis.

More than 30 new Zootopia-themed check-in counters and self-service check-in kiosks are set up at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, and commemorative boarding passes will be provided to the passengers.

Chinese actress Wu Yanshu and musical actor and singer Ayanga also joined the unveiling ceremony as the first guests onboard the new themed plane.

Shanghai Disney Resort and China Eastern Airlines have teamed up to offer a limited-time flight-hotel-park ticket promotion going on sale from May 24 to June 4. Detailed information is available on the China Eastern Airlines official app.
