Alaska Airlines debuted its latest plane decorated with popular Disney characters as part of the airline’s partnership with the Disneyland Resort. The inaugural flight took to the skies today en route to Orange County’s John Wayne Airport (SNA).
The Boeing 737-800 is adorned with images of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Chip ‘n’ Dale in Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland. This is Alaska Airlines’ eighth livery in collaboration with Disneyland Resort and it took artists over 400 hours and 20 days to hand-paint the aircraft exterior.
Sangita Woerner, Alaska’s Senior Vice President of Marketing and Guest Experience, said:
It’s heartening how much our Disneyland Resort-themed airplanes spark joy in our guests – young and young at heart. What makes this even more special is the return of Mickey Mouse on an Alaska Airlines plane since he made his debut on our fleet eight years ago. Alaska’s long-standing relationship with the Disneyland Resort has helped to create unforgettable experiences for our guests and employees. As a family-friendly airline, it speaks to the care we strive to show everyday with these special touches.”
Mickey’s Toontown Express will offer limited edition activity books and snack packs onboard for children.
Alaska is currently flying several other Disney-inspired liveries including: Friendship and Beyond at the Disneyland Resort, which portrays Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story and the Star Wars Transport to the Disneyland Resort. The space-black livery has the Millennium Falcon and TIE fighters on its tail to celebrate Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland.
Anthony’s Take: I loved the United Star Wars plane and think the one Alaska is currently flying is really cool. Partnerships like this one are exciting for guests (and the crews working them) as what’s not to love about a plane painted with a fun livery?
