Passengers at Orlando International Airport may see a giant penguin when they fly in on Southwest. Penguin One, a Boeing 737-700, is a new airplane covered with a photo of a Gentoo penguin to celebrate a new partnership between Southwest Airlines and SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment.

SeaWorld is offering a deal through June 22 where travelers can save up to $100 per reservation on a flight, hotel and theme park package to destinations offering a SeaWorld park (Orlando, San Diego or San Antonio). Book by 6/22/13 at 6:00pm CST and use code 72HRSEA. Travel must be between 8/28 and 12/14/13.

This isn't the first time the marine park's animals have been featured on airplanes. In the past, Shamu One bore the image of the famous killer whale. Southwest's CEO Gary Kelly said, "SeaWorld has been an important partner to Southwest Airlines for 25 years. Penguin One is a natural addition to the Southwest fleet and a great representation of the evolution of our partnership and our mutual dedication to travel, tourism and family entertainment."
