All Nippon Airways is now flying an airplane featuring characters from Demon Slayer. Starting January 30, 2022, the airplanes began flying from Haneda Airport in Japan. Videos of the jet plane are available to watch on ANA’s official Tiktok account.
Each side of the airplane has different designs. One side features Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu, and Inosuke in the midst of battle. The other side features Tanjro in a black and white, calligraphy-style design. ANA originally announced the collaboration in late 2021 and has been teasing the airplane’s full design via social media. In addition to the new hull designs, the planes also sport various Demon Slayer-themed travel goods and assortments during the flight.
If you’d like to see more, the #鬼滅の刃じぇっと Twitter hashtag comes up with posts showing off the airplane’s exterior, interior, and promotional goods.

ANA has collaborated with other anime and video game companies in the past. A frequent collaborator is The Pokemon Company, the most popular example being the Pokemon Jet promotional airplanes. The Pokemon airplanes have since been transferred to Japanese regional airlines like Air Do, which continue to operate airplanes featuring designs of Kantonian and Alolan Vulpix.
The Demon Slayer ANA airplane began flights on January 30, 2022. There is no confirmed end date or flight route for the collaboration airplanes.
