On the airplane you higher, farther and faster than ever before. Or at least it looks like it may be on the basis of his mascot.

Alaska Airlines added a special “Captain Marvel” theme-a Boeing 737 from the fleet to the hub in Seattle in honor of the new film, starring Brie Larson, and premiered on 8 March, USA Today reported.

Larson plays the titular character, also known as Carol Danvers, who was a pilot in her own right in a number of iterations of the character. So, it is only fitting that Alaska Airlines was the first in line to celebrate Captain Marvel.

“We are pleased that We now have a pilot who has risen to Super Hero status-a picture that stands for the strength and confidence and inspires future pilots on our extensive network to go further,” said Natalie Bowman, Alaska Airlines’ managing director of marketing and advertising, in a statement to USA Today.

The passengers on the wing can also catch a glimpse of Captain Marvel’s cat, Goose, according to The Points Guy.

The plane will be on cross-country routes and flights to Hawaii, including Bellingham, Washington (BLI) and Maui’s Kahului Airport (OGG), The Points Guy reported.

Many airlines want to celebrate pop culture or historical events with the theme planes. Over the years, there are several aircraft decorated with popular characters, including a cute Toy Story airplane operated by China Eastern Airlines back in 2018.
