“As part of our strong collaboration, Alaska is proud to combine forces with Disneyland Resort for another magical, special-edition aircraft,” Natalie Bowman, managing director of marketing and advertising for Alaska Airlines, said in a press release. “The detailed artwork and intricately painted design is out of this world, and our guests, especially lifelong Star Wars fans, will feel instantly transported and eager to land at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge the moment they see it.”
“Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is one of the most popular destinations at Disneyland Resort,” said Lynn Clark, Disneyland Resort vice president of sales and services. “Now, thanks to our great friends at Alaska Airlines, our guests can begin their Star Wars experience even before they arrive at Disneyland Park.”
“Star Wars Transport to the Disneyland Resort” will fly throughout Alaska’s network for at least eight years.
