Looking to skate past the wait on your next Alaska Airlines flight? Just wear your Kraken jersey.

In an announcement Wednesday, Alaska Airlines said they would be offering priority boarding to anyone wearing a Kraken jersey from now until the end of the hockey season. You could also wear your Coachella Valley Firebirds jersey, a minor league hockey team from Palm Springs owned and operated by the Kraken.

The offer is only valid on flights leaving the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Paine Field, or Palm Springs International Airport.

“As the official airline of the Kraken, we can’t wait to see fans flood Climate Pledge Arena in our hometown, where our community and guests will get to enjoy the Alaska Airlines Atrium, which will serve as the main entrance for all events at the Climate Pledge Arena,” Alaska Airlines wrote with their announcement.

The Kraken’s final regular-season game is scheduled for Thursday, April 13, 2023, at 7:30 p.m. against the Vegas Golden Knights at the Climate Pledge Arena.
