The Portland Timbers has announced that the club has entered into a multiyear partnership extension with Alaska Airlines. As part of the continued partnership, the iconic Northwest airline’s wordmark will continue to be featured prominently on Timbers game kits and club apparel.
In addition to being featured on Timbers jerseys, Alaska Airlines will continue to serve as the team’s official airline. Alaska Airlines, a Founding Partner of the Timbers, has been the club’s jersey partner since its inaugural 2011 MLS season.
As part of the partnership, Alaska Airlines will continue to support Stand Together Week and the Portland Timbers Community Fund as well as additional community initiatives. Alaska Airlines also will be a presenting sponsor for all MLS Timbers youth soccer camps.
Among the many fan-friendly components of the uniquely interactive partnership, Alaska Airlines will continue its popular program to allow year-round early boarding privileges on its flights originating from PortlandInternational Airport to fans wearing Timbers jerseys. The airline will continue to fly the popular Timbers Jet throughout its route network; the club-themed plane was unveiled in 2011 with a design inspired by two Timbers fans through a paint-the-plane contest.
Alaska Airlines offers more nonstop flights (serving over 58 different destinations) and more daily flights (128 a day) from Portland International Airport than any other carrier.
