Starting off with a strategic partnership with Scoot Pte Ltd (Scoot), the two have joined together to create the first Pokémon-themed livery and inflight experience with an ASEAN airline ? Passengers on the Pikachu Jet TR will be able to purchase exclusive Pokémon 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 9 September, and on board the inaugural flight ?
