Scoot’s Pikachu Jet TR emerging from the hangar in all its glory
Since 9 September 2022, there were two scheduled flights to Tokyo and Seoul for Scoot’s Pokémon Air Adventures experience in September and October, with the rest of the flights rostered to other routes. These may change from time to time due to operational and maintenance needs, and passengers who eventually happen to be on these flights are surprised with a delightful experience. The flight routes for the Pikachu Jet will be reviewed periodically and will be posted when available, on Scoot’s website.
Behind-the-scenes preparation for the first Pokémon Air Adventures flight
Previously known as “Holiyear”, Scoot’s 787-9 Dreamliner 9V-OJJ which has 375 seats, went through the process of having its previous livery sanded off, painted over with a new base and scuffed, before being adorned with the larger-than-life decals of the selected Pokémon characters. A clear coat was then sprayed all over the plane to set these and give it its beautiful, shiny appearance. After approximately two weeks, the Pikachu Jet emerged from SIA Engineering Company’s hangar, ready to take Scoot’s passengers around the world for Pokémon Air Adventures out of Singapore.
