Mascots and school colours from two of Alaska´s most beloved and heated collegiate rivals, the University of Alaska Anchorage and the University of Alaska Fairbanks, will soon be featured on two of Alaska Airlines´ Bombardier Q400 turboprop aircraft.
The colourful paint themes will be unveiled tonight to a crowd of fans at the Sullivan Arena where the Alaska Nanooks and UAA Seawolf hockey teams will battle in the first of a four-game series to claim the Alaska Airlines Governor´s Cup.
“We´re thrilled to show Alaska Airlines´ strong support of education while growing our fleet of university paint themes with our first two schools in Alaska,” said Marilyn Romano, Alaska Airlines´ regional vice president Alaska. “The UAA and UAF school colours will proudly fly between our two largest cities and from Anchorage to Kodiak.”
