MIAMI — Last Monday, Southwest Airlines, the world’s largest low-cost carrier, unveiled a new Boeing 737-700 specially painted on a Disney/Pixar’s all-new, big-screen journey “Coco” livery.
The Boeing 737-700 will begin service throughout Southwest’s almost 100 destinations within the United States, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean, by the end of 2017.
The logo and artwork of the aircraft are inspired by the highly anticipated film. Thereby, Southwest connects its passengers to a novel, exciting and uplifting story, which is expected in U.S. theaters on November 22, 2017.
On Monday, Southwest Airlines Vice President Controller and California Executive, Leah Koontz, said at the event in Oakland that Southwest “specializes in bringing unique and meaningful moments to our Customers.”
Director Lee Unkrich shared his excitement on teaming up with Southwest. “Coco is about a boy with big dreams and a strong connection to his family. These themes really lend themselves to teaming up with a company like Southwest. And after working for nearly six years to bring this story to life, we were all so excited to see “Coco” on the side of an airplane,” he said.
Southwest Airlines encourages its passengers and Disney fans to spot the “Coco” aircraft and share their photos using #CocoAndSouthwest.
