Alaska Airlines continuing Wilson jersey promotion, flight discounts

As part of its promotional hookup with Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Alaska Airlines says it will grant priority boarding to those wearing the No. 3 jersey during the 2014-15 football season.

“We’re thrilled to kick off the 2014 football season by bringing back priority boarding for fans wearing the jersey of our ‘Chief Football Officer’ Russell Wilson,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska’s senior vice president of communications and external relations.

The airline said it will be discounting selected flights to away Seahawks games this year. The 10 percent discount will be available for the Sept. 14 game in San Diego, the Oct. 6 game in Washington, D.C., the Oct. 19 game in St. Louis, the Nov. 16 game in Kansas City and the Dec. 7 game in Philadelphia.
