United Airlines Reveals New “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” Themed Aircraft and GIVEAWAY

United Airlines has revealed aircraft model images that represents a new addition to their fleet with a unique paint job in celebration of the announcement of Star Wars Episode IX, “The Rise of Skywalker”.

The new Boeing 737-800 will have one side of the aircraft’s design represent the Dark Side with the hand of Kylo Ren holding his unique lightsaber and the other showing the Light with Rey holding her lightsaber.

“At United, our mission is to connect people and unite the world, which is exactly what the Star Wars franchise has epically done for more than four decades. For many of our customers, Star Wars was ceremonially introduced to them as a child, with families gathering to watch together and ultimately passing on their love for these films to new generations. We are thrilled to offer United customers an out-of-this-world experience with this special Star Wars livery, coming this fall.” – United Airlines
