Alaska Airlines this week unveiled a new livery scheme which features Mickey Mouse and his pals at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim.
The carrier has been well-known in the past to paint its aircraft into some cool-looking schemes, with this being the latest one.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Alaska Airlines Paints 737 With New Disneyland-based Livery…
It is understood that N565AS is the Boeing 737-800 that has been painted with this new Disneyland-based livery.
According to Alaska Airlines, the process took over 400 hours and 20 days to hand paint the exterior from nose to tail.
Sangita Woerner, the airline’s Senior VP of Marketing and Guest Experience commented on this:
“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.”
Sybil Crum, Disneyland’s VP of Marketing and Commercial Strategy added to this saying:
“Our relationship with Alaska Airlines is more than 25 years strong and truly celebrates the magic of Disney”.
“The plane’s artwork marks Alaska Airlines’ eighth transformation of an aircraft featuring Disney artistry and exhibits the excitement and playfulness of the re-imagined Mickey’s Toontown.”
“We’re so delighted for the opportunity to create even more memorable experiences for our guests together.”
Overall, this is yet again another impressive display from the airline in promoting the resort, and all eyes to see how much attraction this will gain for the Anaheim-based site.
