Posted on October 7, 2012
Alaska Airlines has unveiled a salmon painted airplane design called the Salmon-Thirty-Salmon II. The fish-themed Boeing 737-800 celebrates the partnership of Alaska Airlines and the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute. The plane even features fish scales on the winglets and a salmon pink-colored Alaska script across the fuselage.
Marilyn Romano, Alaska Airlines' regional vice president of the state of Alaska, said in a statement, "Today, we are proud to introduce the largest flying fish to all of Alaska and the world. Not only will this special plane spotlight the best, most sustainable seafood harvest in the world, it will also remind us of the important role the seafood industry has on the Alaska economy. On behalf of the 1,700 Alaska Airlines employees working in the state, we are also proud to safely fly the thousands of men and women who work in the seafood industry throughout the Last Frontier."
