Alaska Airlines' special edition aircraft showcases Disney's Pixar Pier

Alaska Airlines, in collaboration with the Disneyland Resort, has announced it has showcased its latest special-edition aircraft livery that offers a tribute to Pixar Pier, a reimagined land at Disney California Adventure Park, the company said.

A trio of familiar Pixar characters span both sides of the aircraft: Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Jessie from Toy Story. One of the Aliens from the popular animated movie series can be spotted on both winglets, and Rex the Tyrannosaurus makes a special appearance at the boarding door. The plane is named Friendship and Beyond at Disneyland Resort.

The unique design is a collaboration between the teams at Alaska, Disney and Pixar.

Alaska Airlines and its regional partners fly 46 million guests a year to more than 115 destinations with an average of 1,200 daily flights across the United States and to Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica.

The Disneyland Resort features two theme parks — Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park — plus three hotels and the Downtown Disney District, comprising unique dining, entertainment and shopping experiences.

Pixar Animation Studios, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, is a film studio with world-renowned technical, creative and production capabilities in the art of computer animation.
