Airlines and Aviation
Fifty-six football fans will be flown on a special charter flight from Seattle to Phoenix to root for the Seattle Seahawks when they take on the New England Patriots at Super Bowl XLIX on 1 February 2015.
Alaska Airlines has launched a 4 day Russell Wilson's Flight Plan Flight II - For Strong Against Cancer sweepstakes on Facebook.
Fifty-six Mileage Plan members will receive 2 roundtrip tickets for an 'inflight tailgate party' from Seattle/Tacoma International Airport to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport aboard the airline's Go Russell Boeing 737-900ER aircraft.
The winners will also receive 2 nights hotel accommodation, admission to an exclusive game day party, and ground transportation between the airport and their hotel.
The contest is open to residents of Alaska, Oregon, and Washington State.
"We're thrilled to have a second opportunity to fly Russell's fans to the big game," says Joe Sprague, Senior Vice President of Communications and External Relations for Alaska Airlines.
"We invite our loyal Mileage Plan members to join us in cheering on Russell and his team as they pursue their second championship win."
Strong Against Cancer
The airline will make a US$1 donation to Strong Against Cancer up to US$50,000 for every sweepstakes entry.
"By entering this sweepstakes, Mileage Plan members are also helping to raise funds to help defeat childhood cancer, a cause that's a priority for both Alaska and our Chief Football Officer," Joe says.
Most patients undergoing the treatment, the website claims, are cancer free within weeks.
"Immunotherapy is the next great advancement in cancer treatment," the Strong Against Cancer website says.
"Through cellular engineering, we enable the body's own immune system to heal itself - with the harsh and often lifelong side effects of chemotherapy and radiation."
Based in Seattle, Washington, Alaska Airlines is adding 2 additional flights between Seattle and Phoenix to accommodate fans wanting to attend the Super Bowl.
Seattle Seahawks fans wearing Wilson #3 Jerseys will be offered early boarding on all Alaska Airlines flights departing from Seattle for the remainder of the 2014 football season.
