WestJet’s Frozen-themed airplane

Frozen Plane Face

A few days ago WestJet and several partners unveiled a new Disney-themed aircraft featuring Anna, Elsa and Olaf from Frozen, the highest-grossing animated film of all time.

There are also Frozen images inside the airplane, including on the overhead bins, bulkheads, lavatory mirrors and headrests.

Here are some of the fun facts WestJet shared about the Disney Frozen-themed plane:

*The aircraft was painted in Fort Worth, Texas.
*The paint team included team members from Canada, the United States and Germany. They watched Frozen to get them into the spirit before work began.
*The job took 21 days of 12-hour rotations involving a constant crew of six painters working 24/7.
*Sparkles were added to the paint in sections to add shimmer and shine as the aircraft moves.
*An airbrush artist was brought in to work on details around the sun, water and castle.
*The inside of the aircraft has decals and headrest covers that mimic the cold-to-warm (back-to-front) theme on the outside of the aircraft.
* There are 54 separate overhead bin doors on the aircraft and each has a unique Frozen decal.
