Disney Planning To Launch Its Own Airline [Updated]

Disney are looking to get into the airline business with cabin crew in costume on Disney themed flights.


Disney Planning To Launch Its Own Airline [Updated]

Update 25th July 2019 - "Disney has denied reports it is planning to launch its own airline in the US, with a spokesperson telling Telegraph Travel "there is no truth at all" in the rumours." Disney has denied plans to purchase planes and/or start their own airline, but it would be interesting to see if this story was from insiders who say that Disney planned to buy planes or whether they meant they were partnering with airlines to get Disney skinned planes like they do in China. We'll have to wait and see.




Disney is looking to get into the airline business to monetise the travel portion of a Disney vacation they currently do not earn a cent on. Sadly for us Brits, they're not looking to do international flights.

Starting in 2021, the Walt Disney company will begin to acquire small regional airlines to offer fights to and from Orlando. Flights could depart from Detroit, Chicago, and LAX.

Planes will be wrapped in Disney themes (like the Skyliners are) and in-flight entertainment will include Disney+ on the TV screens and Disney music playing throughout. There might also be character appearances before take-off, and in-flight snacks to include Mickey Ice Cream bars, churros and more.
