San Francisco Giants and Alaska Airlines' newest livery shows up in a GIANT way

Alaska Airlines, the official airline partner of the San Francisco Giants, is taking postseason celebrations to new heights with the debut of its new Giants-themed livery.

Just in time for the Giants’ upcoming playoff run, the Airbus 321 aircraft was introduced today to fans departing San Francisco (SFO) for Seattle (SEA).

“Few things are as exciting as seeing this big, colorful giant fly across our beautiful state as we go into our playoff run,” said San Francisco Giants CEO and President Larry Baer.

“My hope is that this aircraft gives Giants fans a way to feel part of the team, every time they travel.

“Partnerships like we have with Alaska Airlines offer critical support of local community, youth and education programs like the Willie Mays Scholarship Fund and the Giants Community Fund, which in turn is helping change the lives of our youths.”

The new Giants-themed livery is one of many ways guests can celebrate the team’s playoff run.

Alaska just announced that fans who wear Giants’ apparel can board early for all San Francisco departing flights for the duration of the team’s postseason play.

Alaska employees dedicated the plane along with a $100,000 check to the Willie Mays Scholarship Fund, in honor of the ‘Say Hey Kid’s’ 90th birthday.

The fund assists in making college aspirations come true for San Francisco’s Black youth and empowers them to pursue their goals to achieve success in high school, college and beyond.

Alaska has been a proud partner of the Giants since 2017,” said Natalie Bowman, Alaska Airlines managing director of brand and marketing communications.

“We’re thrilled to display our Giants pride from 35,000 feet with this unique looking plane, and we wish the team the best of luck as they hopefully make a deep run in the postseason.”
