While the focus may return to the ground game during the upcoming Seattle Seahawks football season, quarterback Russell Wilson is still going to win by airing things out. And he’s already started with a new airplane design from Alaska Airlines.
The Seattle-based airline shared a new time-lapse video on Wednesday that shows giant decals of Wilson being added to the side of a Boeing 737-800. The QB’s tagline “Dream Big. Fly High.” is added above the aircraft’s door.
Wilson has a multi-year endorsement partnership with Alaska, which refers to him as its Chief Football Officer. He works with the carrier to support a variety of youth charities and education programs.
Passengers who fly out of Seattle wearing Wilson’s No. 3 Seahawks jersey will also get access to special perks. Throughout the season, Alaska will grant early boarding to those guests on all Seattle-departing flights.
Flight 682 to Denver on Friday will kick things off, as the team heads out of town to open the season against the Broncos. Tailgate food, a live DJ and a custom photo booth will be part of the sendoff party at Seattle-tacoma International Airport’s C gates before fans board the new Wilson plane.
