Japan Airlines (JAL) has unveiled its special livery aircraft “JAL Myaku Myaku JET” (Embraer 190 with registration JA252J) at the Itami Airport hangar in celebration of the upcoming 2025 Japan World Exposition (Osaka/Kansai Expo).
The aircraft features the Osaka/Kansai Expo’s official character ‘Myaku Myaku’ and other original designs related to the Expo. Myaku Myaku is a mystical creature born from the union of a cell and water, with its origins shrouded in mystery. The red portions represent cells, while the blue portions symbolize pristine water.
The unveiling ceremony was graced by notable attendees including Hirofumi Yoshimura, the Governor of Osaka Prefecture, Kouji Koyama, the producer of the Expo themed projects, and Myaku Myaku himself. A special celebration to mark the 500 days before the Osaka/Kansai Expo took place, featuring a group of fifth-year students from Hotarugaike Elementary School forming the shape of humans (hitomoji) to celebrate the aircraft’s inaugural flight.
The inaugural flight is scheduled on November 28, taking off from Osaka/Itami to Izumo as JAL flight 2355. Subsequent flights will include Izumo to Osaka/Itami as JAL flight 2356, Osaka/Itami to Sendai as JAL flight 2213, and Sendai to Osaka/Itami as JAL flight 2214. The operation of this special livery is planned to continue until around May 2025, with the introduction of a second and third aircraft also in the pipeline.
The Osaka/Kansai Expo is set to be held at Yumeshima in Osaka, from April 13 to October 13, 2025.
