Southwest And Walt Disney Commemorative Aircraft
Southwest Airlines and Walt Disney World Resort have teamed up to create a special co-branded commemorative aircraft. The occasion is the 50th anniversary of each company.
The Boeing 737-700 features 50th anniversary logos of both Southwest Airlines® and Walt Disney World Resort and is emblazoned with a unique EARidescent treatment created by Walt Disney World Resort. This special promotional aircraft also brings Walt Disney World Resort magic into the interior. Overhead bins and window shades sparkle with beloved Disney characters.
The unveiling of the co-branded aircraft was done at the Southwest Airlines Technical Operations Hangar at William P. Hobby International Airport in Houston. Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse joined the event to celebrate the collaboration and send the aircraft into service with its first stop at Orlando International Airport.
The aircraft will fly around the Southwest system through March 2022. Fans can track the aircraft (tail number N954WN) and share photos using #Southwest50 and #DisneyWorld50.
