PHOTOS: Hawaiian Airlines celebrates Thanksgiving with the industry

Hawaiian Airlines’ Aussie sales marketing and airport teams hosted 160 travel industry and media guests for an early Thanksgiving event in Sydney on Wednesday night.

The airline’s regional director for Australia and New Zealand, Andrew Stanbury gave a big ‘mahalo’ on behalf of the Hawaiian team, saying “the airline truly appreciated the support of friends in the industry”.

“It’s been a very significant year for Hawaiian Airlines being our 90th anniversary, 15th year of Sydney to Honolulu operations, and today marks the seventh year of Brisbane to Honolulu operations.”

Stanbury also thanked the team at Hawaiian Airlines for a tremendous year.

As well as a lucky door prize, the airline also announced it would be donating a holiday to Honolulu to the NSW Rural Fire Service to be used at their discretion for fundraising or philanthropy in recognition of the amazing effort of fire fighters in the wake of current events.
