Japan Transocean Air to Paint Two 737-800s in the Jinbei Livery

Japan Transocean Air (JTA) to Paint 737-800s in the Jinbei Livery

Yesterday I wrote about ANA finally revealing the special livery for its upcoming A380. Today, there is another good news related to Japanese special liveries, this time from Japan Transocean Air (JTA). The airline announced that it would paint two 737-800s in the Jinbei livery!

JTA first introduced the Jinbei livery featuring a whale shark (“jinbeizame” in Japanese) in partnership with Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium back in December 2012. Later on, in 2014, it introduced another one, dubbed “Sakura Jinbei” for its pink color. Each of the liveries is currently worn by a Boeing 737-400 (JA8939 and JA8992). Each day’s schedules of the two planes can be found here.

With JTA gradually replacing its 737-400s with 737-800s, I was worried that the Jinbei liveries would disappear from the Japanese skies soon. Luckily, JTA announced today that it would be painting two of its 737-800s in the Jinbei liveries – one in the blue one and another one in the pink one.

The first of the two – New Jinbei Jet – in the blue livery is expected to enter into service around November of this year. The second one – New Sakura Jinbei – is expected to follow around January 2018.
