Alaska Airlines (Horizon Air) Bombardier DHC 8 Q400 WSU Cougars livery [N401QX] landing in PDX

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.

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.

Alaska Airlines Fleet Boeing 737-700 Portland “Timbers Jet” Background Story

In January 2011, the Portland Timbers and Alaska Airlines teamed up to launch a special ‘Paint the Plane’ art contest asking fans to create artwork to adorn an Alaska Airlines Boeing 737-700.

Entries were judged based on originality, creativity and the ability to express the Portland Timbers brand by a group of Alaska Airlines and Timbers representatives.

Elements of the two first-place designs created by Paul Wright, of Portland, and John Bode of San Mateo, Calif., were combined into a final design that now adorns an Alaska Airlines 737-700 jet and flies throughout the carrier’s network. One runner up and seven honorable mentions were also recognized.

The final design of the Timbers-themed airplane was unveiled during a special event at Portland International Airport in early May and immediately entered regular service to all cities currently served by Alaska Airlines with a 737-700.
