If you're sick and tired of waiting in long lines at the airport, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is here to help ... because starting today, you can wear his jersey and get priority boarding on Alaska Airlines, TMZ Sports has learned.

A rep for the airline tells us ... from now 'til the end of the season, any passengers wearing a #3 Seahawks jersey flying out of Seattle will get to board the plane first. Which pretty much means GUARANTEED overhead carry-on space.

FYI, Russell is the new official spokesperson for the airline ... and in addition to this promotion, he's expected to be in a slew of other ads for the company.

But what if everyone starts wearing Russell jerseys?? The airline rep said it's run this promotion before for the Portland Timbers (soccer team) and everything was fine ... so relax.

In related news, Texans fans are now offering free one-way tickets to Alaska for Matt Schaub.

Who dat? Holds record for most wins by a rookie QB in first 2 seasons; 25 (2 other QB's (Peyton Manning and Dan Marino tied with 25) Wilson needs only 1 win in remaining 2 games to break record. Holds record for most consecutive home wins....should I continue ?

Didnt Alaska Airlines have a plane that flipped over a few years ago and dumped all the passengers into the icy Pacific? I'll pass.
