"We're thrilled to invite some of the loudest 12s to join us in supporting Russell and the Seahawks in this historic championship game," said Joe Sprague, vice president of marketing. "On behalf of our 13,000 Alaska and Horizon employees, it's been an honor to support Russell and our hometown football team. From all of us, we say: We're in—and go Hawks!"

According to the customer-friendly airline, Russell Wilson and Alaska Airlines have a great relationship.

The "Russell Wilson 12th Fan Airlift" sweepstakes is the third in a series of promotions that Alaska Airlines and Wilson have launched this month. In "Russell's 12th Fan Rescue," six fans and their guests were "Russ-cued" from rival territories across the nation, and each received an all-expenses paid trip to Seattle on Alaska Airlines, plus playoff game tickets. More than 3,000 entries were submitted in the nationwide contests.

Wilson is regarded as "Chief Football Officer" at Alaska Airlines. If you are a football fan, travelers wearing a Russell Wilson jersey can board early on flights departing from Seattle for the rest of the football season.

Go "like" Alaska Airlines on Facebook and you may be going to New York.
