to Pensacola Blue Wahoos

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As the new official airline of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, Silver
Airways
, the leading airline of the I-10 Gulf Coast region, today
unveiled the first themed aircraft for a Double-A Minor League baseball
team.


Named after Pensacola Blue Wahoos’ mascot, “Kazoo” rolled out of Silver
Airways’ Orlando maintenance hangar today and made its maiden flight to
Pensacola International Airport where it was unveiled to the ball team
and community.

The new livery of the Saab 340 aircraft showcases joint branding
featuring Silver Airways’ iconic turbine and the baseball team’s
powerful Blue Wahoo. “Kazoo” was designed by Steven Ward, a Silver
Airways mechanic and tattoo artist, and the airline’s technical
operations team carried out the plane’s transformation.

“It’s a great day in Pensacola and for baseball’s Southern League, and
we couldn’t be more excited to introduce Silver Airways’ ‘Kazoo’ to the
Pensacola Blue Wahoos and the community,” said Silver Airways CEO Steve

reliable and customer friendly service is hugely important to Silver
Airways and we are thrilled to partner with a club that shares our same
enthusiasm for fun spirited entertainment as the Pensacola Blue Wahoos.”

“This is truly a big moment for us,” said Pensacola Blue Wahoos Team
President Jonathan Griffith. “Seeing our logo on the side of the
aircraft and knowing the Blue Wahoos plane will be traveling all across
the southeast gives us something we could have never dreamed of having.
The opportunities this provides us are immeasurable. Not just with the
Blue Wahoos plane, but also what it allows us for signage and branding
throughout the Pensacola International Airport. Plus, our partnership is
providing fans the opportunity to win roundtrip tickets to destinations
Silver Airways services, so this goes back to our mission of improving
the quality of life in Pensacola and making it a great place to live.”
