Alaska Airlines unveils two new special sports team livery jets...

This autumn Alaska Airlines has painted not one, but two new aircraft with the colours of local sports teams. The two new aircraft show off the relationship the carrier has with Washington State University (WSU) and the University of Washington (UW).  

The Embraer E175 “Go Cougs” aircraft will take to the skies this Saturday, 23rd September from Seattle to Pullman ahead of WSU’s matchup against the Oregon State Beavers. 

On 3rd October the “Go Dawgs” special UW-themed aircraft will be introduced to fans departing Seattle to Portland. 

 "Since launching our first university-themed livery almost 20 years ago, we know that few things get local fans as excited as seeing their school’s colours on the side of the hometown airlines’ aeroplanes," said Joe Sprague, Horizon Air president.
