Alaska Airlines Offers Early Boarding for Customers Wearing Russell Wilson Jersey

Fans invited to follow Russell on the road and save 10 percent on airfare*

SEATTLE, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Customers wearing star NFL quarterback Russell Wilson's No. 3 jersey will be able to board early on Seattle-departing Alaska Airlines flights starting tomorrow. The promotion, which began during the team's playoff run last year, is good through the duration of the Seahawks' 2014 NFL football season.

"We're thrilled to kick off the 2014 football season by bringing back priority boarding for fans wearing the jersey of our 'Chief Football Officer' Russell Wilson," said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines' senior vice president of communications and external relations. "This year Alaska Airlines is hoping to bring even more blue and green to the skies. In addition to early boarding, we're making travel to away games a little more affordable for 12s who wish to join us in supporting our hometown team wherever they play."

Starting today football fans can follow Wilson and the Seahawks on the road this season and receive 10 percent off airfare to select away games.

Select away games include*:

  • Sept. 14 game in San Diego
  • Oct. 6 game in Washington, D.C.
  • Oct. 19 game in Saint Louis
  • Nov. 16 game in Kansas City
  • Dec. 7 game in Philadelphia

These promotions are part of an exclusive multi-year partnership between Alaska Airlines and the Seahawks' star quarterback. Since being named Alaska's "Chief Football Officer" last December, Wilson has appeared at several exclusive events in Seattle, has been featured in four television commercials and had a plane dedicated in his honor. In addition, Alaska has supported a number of youth and education programs including the Russell Wilson Passing Academy, which provides inner-city and underprivileged youths an opportunity to attend football camp with the star quarterback.

Wilson and Alaska Airlines enjoy a relationship that began in 2013 after his rookie year in the National Football League. Wilson and Alaska have since teamed up to inspire youths to finish school and accomplish their goals. An event last summer— dubbed "Pledge It. Prove It. Take Flight"— attracted more than 600 students from 21 high schools in Western Washington, who heard from Wilson and employees of Alaska Airlines and its regional carrier, Horizon Air, about careers in aviation.

Alaska Airlines, a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group (NYSE: ALK), together with its partner regional airlines, serves 100 cities through an expansive network in Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. Alaska Airlines ranked "Highest in Customer Satisfaction Among Traditional Carriers" in the J.D. Power North American Airline Satisfaction Study for seven consecutive years from 2008 to 2014. Alaska Airlines' Mileage Plan also ranked highest in the J.D. Power 2014 Airline Loyalty/Rewards Program Satisfaction Report. For reservations, visit www.alaskaair.com .
