DALLAS – Alaska Airlines (AS) introduces its Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge liveried Boeing 737-890, N538AS, the last AS aircraft in the old livery.

N538AS was ferried from Spokane to the Seattle/Tacoma hub last night. It is currently at John Wayne Airport (SNA) and will be unveiled later today at San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

The new paint scheme features the Millenium Falcon and Tie fighters duking it out on the tail of the aircraft, which bears the Disneyland’s Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge logo on its side. There’s also a Porg, the sea-dwelling beakless bird from the film franchise, welcoming guests aboard the Boeing 737.

As part of its MAy the 4th celebration, the airline has also announced that guests wearing their favorite Star Wars clothing on any flight scheduled for today get to enjoy priority boarding.

Priority Boarding

To celebrate the Star Wars fan day of “May the Fourth (be with you),” the airline also released a note offering guests who wear their favorite Star Wars gear the chance to board early. 

The airline invites its customers who have a flight on AS today to break out their “vintage Luke Skywalker T-shirt, way too cool BB-8 ballcap, or even that Darth Vader cape.”

When a guest wears any clothing item Star Wars-related, says AS, they’ll be able to board their flight just after Group B (which could stand for, say, Boba Fett). So listen closely to the announcements by gate agents.

“Everybody in the galaxy loves Star Wars, so we had to celebrate this epic day the Alaska way,” said Natalie Bowman, managing director of marketing and advertising for Alaska Airlines.

“Whether you’re traveling near – or far, far away – on May 4th, we hope to see you at our gates ready to board early in your favorite Star Wars gear. It will truly be a star-studded event!”  

Happy May the 4th!
