The Seattle Seahawks are off to another awesome start this season, already grating the Green Bay Packers in the 2014 opener at Century Link field. To celebrate the Seahawks success Seattle’s hometown airline, Alaska Airlines, is keeping Russell Wilson as the airlines Chief Football Officer (CFO) and promoting Seattle’s hometown pride by offering Seahawks fans in Seattle the opportunity to board first for sporting a Russell Wilson jersey.
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.”
In addition to providing fans with early boarding, those loyal fans traveling to select Seahawk away games are also eligible to receive 10% ticket costs when flying Alaska Airlines.
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
To book a ticket and save 10% (even if you’re not going to the game) visit the Alaska Airline GO RUSSELL website, dedicated to Alaska Air’s CFO.
