Alaska Airlines exhibits patriotic paint plot for honor flight, Memorial Day

The Frozen North Airlines revealed a military-themed attire this week without a moment to spare for Memorial Day and in front of a honor flight for veterans from Alaska to Washington, D.C.

The patriotic paint plot on a 737-800 aircraft was brought about by a gathering of the airline’s maintenance technicians. This is the second aircraft designed with the “Honoring Those Who Serve” attire; the first was a 737-900.

A large inscription on the side of the aircraft reads: “Honoring those who serve.” A smaller quote says: “To those in uniform serving today and to those who have served in the past, we honor you today and every day.”

“We’re ‘Honoring Those Who Serve,’ one flight at a time. Today, we’re excited to unveil our latest military livery, symbolizing remembrance, pride and appreciation for those who protect our freedom,” the airline wrote on Twitter April 30.

The airline at that point flew 22 veterans from Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport to Ronald Reagan Washington National to see their separate war commemorations out of the blue. The gathering will take a five-day visit to visit numerous national monuments and appreciate the country’s capital.

“This is the first time we’ve been able to have the Last Frontier Honor Flight group go from Anchorage all the way to D.C. on the same aircraft and land at DCA,” said Tim Thompson, Alaska spokesman. Honor flights are given need for the military-themed aircraft, however the 737-900, the first to wear the uniform, isn’t prepared to make the trek right to Washington.

The Last Frontier Honor Flight program is the Alaska hub of the Honor Flight Network, a national system that attempts to fly veterans to visit the dedications that honor them in Washington. Top need is given to World War II veterans and critically ill veterans from all wars. Gold country Airlines gives free travel to the veterans.

“The military theme was … designed to symbolize remembrance, pride and appreciation,” Thompson said. “We are proud to honor past, present and future military members and thank them for their service and sacrifice.”

Thompson said they expect the livery to be in service for a number of years.
