Low-cost Mexican airline Interjet has teamed with filmmakers to offer customers a unique opportunity to fly in a plane designed with logos from the new James Bond movie “Spectre.”
Along with Interjet, EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment partnered in the modification of two airplanes from the Mexican airline’s fleet using themes from the new 007 film.
The two aircraft — both Airbus 320s — are adorned with logos from the “Spectre” movie and made their first flights on Oct. 30. The first plane will fly an international route from New York to Mexico City, and the other will handle flights to Huatulco and Culiacan in Mexico and Bogota, Colombia.
In addition to the paint jobs found on the special Interjet aircraft, the flights to and from Mexico will also feature behind-the-scenes materials from the new James Bond film that will be accessible to passengers for six weeks following the release.
The official Twitter account of Interjet shared images of the two 007-themed planes:
Interjet is also a primary sponsor of the "Designing 007" exhibition in Mexico. The showcase dedication to the James Bond franchise includes more than 400 items like scripts, weapons, photographs, costumes and other one-of-a-kind objects.
Interjet executive president Miguel Aleman Magnani released a statement, saying, “It is an honor to partner with one of the world's most widely-recognized franchises which, for the first time ever, will highlight our country's cultural heritage and tourism potential.”
