Southwest Airlines Will Have Shark-Week Themed Planes!

posted by Ellen K -

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Discovery Channel's Shark Week, Southwest Airlines will be sporting artwork of different types of sharks.

The plane designs are a partnership between Southwest and Discovery Channel.

In years past, they had one shark-themed plane, but this year they will include five aircraft with customized decals featuring a different species of shark.

These shark flights took off from Dallas, Houston, Chicago and Phoenix and will continue to fly through the end of August. 

Southwest is also sharing the tail numbers of the aircraft so fans can track their journey.

The airline even has a special channel dedicated to Shark Week that will have the premier of an episode of Great White Abyss before it airs on television.

Get ready Shark Week fans!! 

“The zebra shark doesn’t let its name hold it back. Zebra sharks are born with dark bodies covered in zebra-like stripes, but as they mature, the pattern changes to small dark spots on a grayish-tan background. Not to be confused with the leopard shark, this species has two other distinguishing features – the prominent ridges running the length of its body, and the impressive tail, which is nearly as long as the body itself. . . Take a look at our story to see how the National Aquarium feeds their zebra sharks, Zeke and Zoe!” 📸 &🦈 caption by @nationalaquarium . . . . #savesharks #sharkweek #sharkseason #nationalaquarium #zebrasharks #zeke #zoe
