Westjet has unveiled a new Frozen-themed plane — its second custom-painted Disney-themed aircraft.

The Calgary-based airline unveiled the Frozen plane at a hangar in Toronto on Sunday morning.

The mostly-blue plane features Anna and Elsa working some snow magic on the tail, while snowman Olaf features on the front, lying under an umbrella on the beach.

The aircraft was painted in Fort Worth, Texas, using 624 litres of paint in 23 colours.

It will join Westjet's "Magic Plane" featuring Sorcerer Mickey, launched two years ago.

The new plane has a winter end and a summer end. Each of the 54 overhead bins has a unique decal, in keeping with the back-to-front cold-to-warm theme.

The Boeing 737 will fly to various destinations in Westjet's network, not just Orlando. 

In August, WestJet took delivery of four new wide-body Boeing 767-300 aircraft, which will allow the airline to begin flying to Europe.

The company also announced plans to fly direct to London, England, from six Canadian cities starting in spring 2016.
