You'll soon no longer see Virgin America Airlines and Alaska Airlines in the same airport.

"Alaska Airlines and Virgin America are now one airline " Alaska said in a statement Monday, announcing that nearly all signs of Virgin America are going away next week.

Starting April 25, the next big step in the Alaska-Virgin merger announced two years ago will be complete. At 29 U.S. and Mexican airports -- including Sea-Tac Airport -- there will no longer be Alaska and Virgin signage. It will just be Alaska.

Tickets will now be Alaska Airlines. Passengers will need to look for Alaska's flight numbers and will go to Alaska's gates. Check-in will be at the Alaska counter and kiosks at the airport, or online at alaskaair.com. The only mobile app and call center used by both will be Alaska's.

The one thing that may not change for some Virgin passengers is the look of their plane. Some aircraft will still have the Virgin paint job, at least for a little while longer.
