Silver Airways Presents First Minor League Double-A Baseball League Themed-Aircraft

Silver Airways unveils Kazoo

As the new official airline of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, Silver Airways, the leading airline of the I-10 Gulf Coast region, 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 Rossum. “Serving the Pensacola and Florida/Alabama Gulf Coast with safe, 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.”

Silver Airways recently started new daily nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Pensacola International Airport (PNS), ideal for business, leisure and military travelers.
