Universal Studios Japan and Japan Airlines (also known as JAL) have teamed up to create special packaging for next year featuring the park’s wide cast of characters including Mario, Harry Potter, Friends of Sesame Street and many others !

The USJ Jet is an Embraer E190 and flies as part of J-Air, JAL’s regional commuter airline. The registration is JA252J and contains 95 seats. This particular jet was also used as Universal Studios Japan’s Minion Jet from 2019 to 2020.


Inside, headrests featuring characters like Mario, the Minions, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Jaws and a T-Rex adorn each seat.


All drinks are also served in special commemorative paper cups.


And a special random gift representing the design of the jet and one of the six characters from Universal Studios Japan will be given to all passengers. The aircraft is expected to operate flights from Osaka Itami Airport to regional cities across Japan, such as Misawa, Fukuoka, Hakodate and Kumamoto. A the full list of routes the jet will serve is available on the JAL website. Operations with this particular packaging will end in March 2023.

While you’re unlikely to bump into this jet flying from Tokyo to Osaka, those visiting smaller locations in Japan are sure to be in for a treat! Are you interested in flying on the USJ Jet? Let us know in the comments below!
