Launched last month, TAM’s latest special livery celebrates Walt Disney World and is a kid’s dream. The 767-300, which has been flying to Orlando, may however be the last special livery for TAM, with the new LATAM livery scheduled to come into service in the next few months.
However this livery is the first aircraft in Latin America to fly with a Walt Disney World themed aircraft. The wrapping of the #PlaneofDreams is the celebration of the successful partnership that began in 2009, when TAM Viagens (TAM Vacations) became an approved Disney operator, a partnership that becomes stronger each year. “Working together we add expertise, value and even more quality to the products and services offered to our customers. In 2016, we will launch several promotions together, focused on the end consumer and the trade,” said Marcelo Dezem, TAM Viagens Director.
The design, which features Disney’s Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy, and will fly to the carrier’s long-distance international routes. But the mammoth task of bringing this plane wrap to life is impressive in itself.
Pieced together from 536 separate artwork pieces, this could be classed as the largest Disney jigsaw ever made, totalling 9,000 square feet. Preparing the Boeing 767-300 involved dozens of professionals from the creation and development teams, engineering, infrastructure, operations, marketing and communication.
Taking 10 days of hard work to bring to life, The “Plane of Dreams” has been flying the last month across the TAM 767 network, but with all eyes now waiting on the new LATAM livery to be rolled out, its a safe assumption that this may be LAN and TAM’s last special livery, with new liveries only now being rolled out with the new combined look.
Still, take a look through the gallery to see TAM’s attention to detail in creating one of the largest Walt Disney World billboards.
