Alaska Airlines recently debuted its new Pixar-inspired, special-edition aircraft livery. On both sides of the Pixar-themed Boeing 737-800 aircraft, travelers spot recognizable faces from the Toy Story franchise, including Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Jessie. Rex the Tyrannosaurus appears on the boarding door and the little green aliens show up on the aircraft’s winglets.
The aircraft, which required 2,800 work hours to paint its new livery, began flying the airline’s route network last month. The new livery is a collaboration between the airline, Disney and Pixar and celebrates Disneyland Resort’s new Pixar Pier neighborhood, filled with new rides and dining and shopping options.
“There’s nothing better than landing happy on the way to The Happiest Place on Earth,” said Natalie Bowman, managing director of brand marketing and advertising, Alaska Airlines. “The Disneyland Resort is one of our signature West Coast friendships, and we love that we can celebrate Pixar Pier by taking these iconic characters on a brand-new adventure.”
“We celebrate friendship and beyond every day in Pixar Pier at the Disneyland Resort,” said Lynn Clark, vice president of sales and services, Disneyland Resort. “Now, thanks to our great friends at Alaska Airlines, our guests are immersed in the celebration even before they arrive.”
