Plane with image of Bad Bunny and Adidas flies to Cuba from Miami

“The plane with the name of Bad Bunny and the Adidas logo does not belong to the Puerto Rican singer but to the charter company Global X. It is used mostly for trips between the US and Cuba, so they already know where these profits go. I don’t understand the euphoria,” said Yannis Estrada, founder and CEO of Cuba Spaces, on his Twitter account.

The aircraft, an Airbus A320 registration N281GX, has an operational life of 16.2 years.

Global X acquired it and fitted it out with a VIP configuration. He replaced the livery above by the name of the singer, in addition to the representative colors of the tennis brand that he promotes.

The change in the aircraft design was for a contest in which the winners traveled from Puerto Rico to New York to a Bad Bunny concert celebrated on August 27. The draw was part of the reggaeton alliance with Adidas.
