Alaska Airlines Reveals Captain Marvel-Themed Plane
Alaska Airlines unveiled a special-edition plane Tuesday in celebration of the highly-anticipated release of Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel on March 8, International Women’s Day.
The aircraft features Marvel Studios’ first female Super Hero lead, Captain Marvel, and debuted Tuesday at Sea-Tac International Airport. The plane and its passengers flew from Washington to Orange County, California.
“This new plane featuring Captain Marvel will delight guests of all ages,” Alaska Airlines managing director Natalie Bowman said in a statement. “We’re excited to showcase a pilot who’s risen to Super Hero status––an image that embodies strength and confidence and inspires future aviators across our expansive network to go further.”

Travelers boarding the Captain Marvel-themed plane will see a massive image of the hero on the side of the plane, a film logo when they board and passengers seated over the wings can see a picture of a cat named Goose from the film.
“Our collaboration with Alaska Airlines is taking our fans ‘Higher, Further, Faster’ with this amazing opportunity to fly with our fearless Super Hero and pilot, Captain Marvel,” Marvel senior vice president Mindy Hamilton said. “We are so excited that our fans will be accompanied by Carol Danvers on their next adventure.”
The themed Boeing 737-800 was added to the Alaska Airlines route network Tuesday and will cruise at 530 miles per hour throughout the continental United States and Hawaii.
Between February 6-9, Alaska Airlines’ social media followers can enter for a chance to win one pair of tickets to the premiere of Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel, including roundtrip airfare and hotel accommodations for two in Los Angeles.
