Mickey Inspired Plane Flies Through the Brazilian Skies

When you’re traveling for your vacation, it is already very exciting. Imagine traveling on an airplane that is designed after Mickey Mouse. That is the reality for many passengers that will be traveling Internationally. Sarah Domenech shared more with Disney Parks Blog:


Last week, Azul Linhas Aéreas presented an Airbus A320neo plane inspired by the mouse that started it all. The first of four red- and yellow-colored aircraft inspired by Mickey Mouse was unveiled during a magical event held at the airline’s hangar in Campinas, Sao Paulo.

In true celebratory Disney fashion, Mickey Mouse surprised the audience, along with executives from Azul Linhas Aéreas and Disney, to officially welcome “Mickey Mouse Nas Nuvens,” which translates as “Mickey Mouse in the clouds,” to the airline’s fleet.

Azul will debut three additional Disney character-inspired aircraft in the coming months, operating domestic routes through nearly 50 Brazilian airports.

Here’s a special look at how “Mickey Mouse Nas Nuvens” was created!

The launch of the first plane coincides with The World’s Most Magical Celebration, which began Oct. 1 and will continue for 18 months to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort.
