Alaska Airlines Unveils Star Wars-themed Aircraft

Alaska Airlines recently joined forces with Disneyland Resort, May the Fourth, to unveil a new, one-of-its-kind Star Wars-themed aircraft that even Chewbacca would be proud of.

 The plane, painted space black with the iconic Millennium Falcon emblasoned on the tail chased by TIE fighters, celebrates Star WarsGalaxy’s Edge, the newest land of adventure inside Disneyland park. The plane is now flying on routes across Alaska’s network for the universe to enjoy.

 For this latest collaboration – Alaska’s seventh painted plane for the Disneyland Resort – no Jedi mind tricks were needed: the force was strong for a Star Wars livery to finally enter Alaska’s fleet. The aircraft’s official name is ‘Star Wars’ Transport to the Disneyland Resort’ with a tail number of N538AS. After the big reveal and celebration at the gate in the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the plane recently made its inaugural flight and ultimate arrival at John Wayne Airport in Orange County.

 The unique design of the Star Wars-inspired plane is a collaboration among teams at Alaska, Disneyland Resort and Lucasfilm. Familiar spacecraft span each side of the plane with hand painted, detailed imagery: the Millennium Falcon and four TIE fighters.

 Designers at Disneyland Resort focused on the incredibly identifiable, widely recognised Millennium Falcon for the spotlight, in addition to the well-traveled spaceship being the focal point at Star WarsGalaxy’s Edge, a 14-acre land in Disneyland park.
