All eyes were on Seattle last week while the Kraken revealed their inaugural roster for the 2021-22 NHL season—and from here, the team is looking fly!
As the official airline of the Kraken, we can’t wait to welcome our community and guests to home games via Alaska Airlines’ Atrium, which will serve as the main entrance for all events at the Climate Pledge Arena.
“With our headquarters in Seattle, we love giving back to our hometown and connecting Seattle to the world,” says Sangita Woerner, VP of Marketing. “This partnership is no exception as we’ll work closely with the Kraken to create a variety of initiatives that benefit our community, beyond events at the Climate Pledge Arena.”
Welcome to Seattle
To celebrate the Seattle Kraken drafting new players, we gave away prizes every “period” (20 mins) during a social happy hour on Twitter. The lucky winners who tweeted #AlaskaAirHockey scored air travel, Kraken game tickets and a co-branded air hockey table.
We can’t wait to cheer on the home team and share some special surprises we have up our wings this season. Follow @alaskaair for your chance to score big in the future!
