    Remember the ANA’s R2-D2 Star Wars themed plane we featured a while back? Well, it’s coming to Singapore! And not only that — Changi Airport and ANA are giving away 20 pairs of tickets to a tour of the newly-launched jet.

    Changi will actually be the first Asian airport outside of Japan to welcome the R2-D2 aircraft, chartered by JTB Japan, which will make a two-night stopover here from 12 to 14 November 2015. The special event for fans will be held on Saturday, 14 November 2015.

    From now until 25 October 2015, Star Wars fans in Singapore can win a pair of tickets each by participating in online contests held on ANA’s website and Changi Airport’s Facebook page. With 20 pairs of tickets up for grabs, 40 lucky winners will get to enjoy a tour of the iconic aircraft — which boasts unique interior details such as R2-D2 headrests and dining ware. 10 winners will be selected by Changi Airport Group and 30 winners will be selected by ANA.

    During the three-hour on-ground experience, winners will enjoy the novelty of catching one of the movies from the Star Wars saga — the first time any has been available on a commercial flight — and enjoy an “in-flight” meal, all in the comfort of a business class seat.  The winners will also receive goodie bags filled with limited-edition commemorative merchandise such as an R2-D2 ANA jet model plane and a Star Wars plush toy.

    Unfortunately, the R2-D2 jet wouldn’t be coming to Singapore all that often after this special event. Apart from domestic routes, the R2-D2 ANA jet has been scheduled to fly between Tokyo and Vancouver in Canada, Seattle and San Jose in the US, Munich, Paris and Brussels in Europe, Sydney in Australia, Beijing in China and Jakarta in Indonesia.
