Alaska Airlines Introduces ‘Spirit of Disneyland II'; Makes Wish Trip Inaugural Flight

Alaska Airlines' 'Spirit of Disneyland II'Alaska Airlines this morning introduced its “Spirit of Disneyland II” aircraft at Portland International Airport. The plane is adorned with the faces of Disney’s most recognized characters – Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and, for the first time, Pluto. The new design replaces a previous Disney-themed aircraft retired two weeks ago. Alaska Airlines’ Boeing 737-900 aircraft made its inaugural flight from Portland to Los Angeles International Airport carrying three Make-A-Wish® children on their way to the Disneyland Resort to have their wishes granted.

“We’re honored to have our Disney and Make-A-Wish partners join us to debut Alaska’s fourth Disney-themed aircraft,” said Alaska Airlines’ President Brad Tilden. “For the next seven years these five characters will serve as an iconic vehicle to bring customers across our network to the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’ and other Alaska Airlines destinations.”

Alaska Airlines Crew and Make-A-Wish Families joined by Mickey Mouse and friendsThe “Spirit of Disneyland II” aircraft was welcomed at the gate by the three children and their families, as well as Mickey Mouse, Pluto and leaders from Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Oregon, Disneyland Resorts and Alaska Airlines, as travelers looked on from the terminal.

“When a child with a life-threatening medical condition wishes to meet a Disney character or visit a Disney park, we know that Alaska Airlines and Disneyland Resort are there to make it a dream-come-true,” said Andrew Asato, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oregon executive director. “With donated tickets and passes, as well as extra-special treatment for wish families, these partners have each provided an unduplicated resource to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for more than 20 years.”
