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.

Horizon Air (Alaska) - De Havilland Bombardier Q400 N435QX - University of Washington Huskies at PDX

Alaska Airlines Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 University of Washington Huskies Livery. Part of our special series of aircraft featuring West Coast universities, this livery celebrates the University of Washington Huskies.

The Husky plane was brand new when painted and as such would have been painted regardless of paint scheme. No expense was incurred by the university.

The goal of the project was to put an element of fun into the flying experience while also putting a smile on the faces of university alumni, staff and students.

The original Husky plane was unveiled on Feb. 19, 2008. The Husky plane is Bombardier Q400.

These 76-seat turboprop aircraft are the workhorses of Horizon air, using 30-40 percent less fuel and reducing emissions by the same percent than comparable sized jets.

University of Idaho Vandals Facts

The Idaho Vandals are the intercollegiate athletic teams representing the University of Idaho, located in Moscow. The Vandals compete at the NCAA Division I level as a member of the Big Sky Conference.

The football team was an independent for the 2013 season due to a major wave of departures from the WAC that left just two football-playing schools. In July 2014, Idaho returned its football team to the Sun Belt Conference and the other sports rejoined the Big Sky Conference.

The university’s official colors are silver and gold, honoring the state’s mining tradition. Because these metallic colors in tandem are not visually complementary for athletic uniforms, black and gold are the prevalent colors for the athletic teams, with an occasional use of silver, similar to Colorado, whose official colors are also silver and gold.

When Idaho moved out of the Big Sky to the Big West in 1996, the yellow “Green Bay” gold was changed to metallic “Vegas” gold. Yellow gold and black were the colors used by most of the varsity teams from 1978 to 1996, initiated by first-year head football coach Jerry Davitch’s new uniforms for 1978.
