Alaska Airlines Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 Washington State University Cougars Livery. Part of our special series of aircraft featuring West Coast universities, this livery celebrates the Washington State University Cougars.
A look closer though and you will see that it is part of Horizon Air’s new strategy to salute four major regional universities by painting several of its 70-seat aircraft with university colors and logos.
Horizon Air, a sister company of Alaska Airlines, formulated the strategy lining up permission from the universities to use the copyrighted logos. No money will exchange hands as part of the promotion.
Because the jets were up on the paint rotation, Horizon isn’t paying extra for the paint job, either. Horizon typically pays between $40,000 and $50,000 to paint a plane.
