“This plane will delight guests of all ages from San Francisco to New York and beyond,” said Natalie Bowman, Alaska Airlines’ managing director of brand marketing and advertising. “Like all of us at Alaska Airlines, many of our guests have anxiously awaited Incredibles 2. We’re honored to take this incredible family to new heights and share the imagery with travelers across our expansive route network.”

Decked out in their Incredible super suits, the Parr family—Bob, Helen, Violet, Dash and baby Jack-Jack—spans the fuselage. Guests boarding the Incredibles 2 plane will see a logo when they board. An image of the raccoon from the film, Jack-Jack’s nemesis, will delight guests seated over the wings.

“These characters are among the most celebrated characters in the Pixar family,” said Incredibles 2 producers Nicole Grindle and John Walker. “After waiting 14 years to see them on the big screen again, fans will love seeing them on their Alaska Airlines plane, too.”

The unique design is a collaboration between Disney•Pixar and Alaska Airlines. The Incredibles 2-themed 737-800, tail number N519AS, begins flying throughout Alaska’s route network Sunday. With a cruising speed of 530 mph and sporting larger-than-life images of the “Supers,” the plane will visit fans throughout the country via transcontinental routes and flights to Hawaii.
