– “Alaska Airlines Unveils First Major Brand Change in 25 Years”
“Alaska Airlines today [January 25] unveiled its first major brand change in 25 years to a crowd of about 1,800 employees. The refreshed brand was introduced on a newly painted Boeing 737-800 and soon will be featured throughout the airport experience, on all digital channels, in marketing materials and across Alaska’s entire fleet.
‘Our company has a unique personality and a vibrant spirit that our Eskimo has personified for almost half a century,’ said Alaska Airlines CEO Brad Tilden. ‘We believe our refreshed look reflects the warm relationships our employees have built with our customers, and makes us stand out in a compelling and consistent way as we expand into new markets, build loyalty and attract new customers.’
In addition to the newly painted plane, starting tomorrow travelers at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport will see a more welcoming lobby and 41 newly branded gates. Customers can view the refreshed logo, plane and airport design online at www.alaskaair.com/welcome,” quoting Alaska Airlines.
