The airline Gol has just launched the Harry Potter airplane. Yes, that is exactly what you read.
The action is a partnership with Universal Studios and starts this week. Customers of Gol’s Brazil-Orlando (USA) route will be able to travel in a personalized airplane in honor of the world of J. K. Rowling.
The magic starts on the exterior, which has been painted and stickered. Inside the Harry Potter Airplane a visual treatment has also been done in allusion to the Florida park attraction.
The luggage compartments have been given pictures of the characters from the Harry Potter universe.
The design also includes a decorative map of Hogsmeade and Diagonal Alley on the seating tables. Both areas are attractions in “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter”, Universal’s park.
The partnership between the two companies is expected to last one year. The contract calls for only one custom unit at the moment, and the aircraft chosen was the PR-XMR, which was already flying for Gol.
Gol’s structural engineer, Samuel Cunha Diniz, stated that the adhesive process is done in parts, with overlapping between the panels. “This prevents water from getting in or the wind from tearing the adhesive off with speed.”
