Russell Wilson jersey gets you priority boarding on Alaska Airlines
Wear your trusty No. 3 Russell Wilson jersey on any Seattle-departing Alaska Airlines flight and get priority boarding.
If you own a Russell Wilson jersey and spend a lot of time at Sea-Tac Airport, we have some good news: Wear your trusty No. 3 jersey on any Seattle-departing Alaska Airlines flight and get priority boarding.
"All of us at Alaska are thrilled to announce this partnership," Alaska Airlines CEO Brad Tilden, said in a press release. "Russell is known for his determination, professionalism, integrity and his humble heart -- qualities we all aspire to. His meticulous planning and legendary hustle help make Russell a proven winner. We're pleased to make him our honorary CFO -- 'chief football officer.' "
Wilson added: "Since coming to Seattle, I've enjoyed getting involved in the community. As I have, I've come to recognize Alaska Airlines as a leader in Seattle and an airline that I feel I have much in common with. I'm delighted to be partnering with Seattle's hometown airline."
No word on if Wilson got to keep the uniform.
This isn't Wilson's only gig outside of football. The Seattle Times notes that the second-year quarterback is also a spokesman for American Family Insurance, does ads for Levis, as well as an auto dealership.
(When Wilson starts doing local auto insurance commercials then he's really made it.)
More from the release: "As part of the exclusive multi-year partnership, Wilson will appear at events, take part in marketing activities for Alaska Airlines, and work with the carrier to support youth and education programs. Among them is the Russell Wilson Passing Academy, which provides inner-city and underprivileged youths an opportunity to attend football camp for a once-in-a-lifetime experience."
