Ahead of the release of Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2 on June 15, Alaska Airlines unveiled a special-edition paint scheme. The Incredibles 2-themed plane, Alaska’s first Disney•Pixar film livery, was unveiled to a crowd of 2,000 during the company’s Aviation Day at their Seattle hangar.
“This plane will delight guests of all ages from San Francisco to New York and beyond,” said Natalie Bowman, Alaska Airlines’ managing director of brand marketing and advertising.
“These characters are among the most celebrated characters in the Pixar family,” said Incredibles 2 producers Nicole Grindle and John Walker. “After waiting 14 years to see them on the big screen again, fans will love seeing them on their Alaska Airlines plane, too.”
The unique design is a collaboration between Disney•Pixar and Alaska Airlines. The Incredibles 2-themed 737-800, tail number N519AS, begins flying throughout Alaska’s route network Sunday. With a cruising speed of 530 mph and sporting larger-than-life images of the “Supers,” the plane will visit fans throughout the country via transcontinental routes and flights to Hawaii, a press release from the company says.
Alaska’s Disneyland Resort-themed planes include the “Spirit of Disneyland II,” launched in 2009; and the “Adventure of Disneyland Resort” Cars Land at Disney California Adventure plane, which made its debut in 2013.
