SEATTLE - Alaska Airlines is offering early boarding at Sea-Tac Airport to passengers wearing Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson's No. 3 jersey.

The promotion starts Thursday as Seattle begins its NFL season at home against Green Bay and it will continue through the Seahawks' 2014 NFL football season.

The airline is also offering 10 percent off airfare to five of the Seahawks' away games, including the Sept. 14 game in San Diego; the Oct. 6 game in Washington, D.C.; the Oct. 19 game in St. Louis; the Nov. 16 game in Kansas City; and the Dec. 7 game in Philadelphia.

The Seattle-based airline named Wilson its "Chief Football Officer," and he appears in Alaska commercials.
