We only just reported on the expanding route of the Hello Kitty planes. Now Brussels Airlines has created a special aircraft called Aerosmurf.
The Smurfs, who celebrate their 60th birthday this year, are one of Belgium’s most loved comic characters. Aerosmurf is now bringing the world to Belgium and the best of Belgium to the world, just like the four other Belgian Icons Rackham (Tintin), Magritte, Trident (Red Devils) and Amare (Tomorrowland). The name Aerosmurf is the title of a Smurfs comic album which tells the story of a little Smurf whose dream is to fly.
For passengers flying with Aerosmurf the experience continues inside. Little smurf footsteps on the carpet are leading the Aerosmurf guests to their seats, while a Smurfs video and adapted boarding music complete the Smurfs experience. Airbrush specialist André Eisele and 14 artists worked 14 days non-stop to paint the design on the plane by hand. They used 28 colors, 420 liters of paint, 24,000 meters of masking tape and 4,500 m² masking paper. Aerosmurf will be part of the Brussels Airlines fleet until 2023.
