Hawaiian’s new regional chief starts after record year

January 16, 2019 Headline News No Comments

The team’s on deck! Hawaiian Airlines’ new regional director Australia and New Zealand, Andrew Stanbury, has received a warm welcome from his Australia and New Zealand teams at his first formal planning session in Sydney.

For the past three years, Stanbury has been executive general manager for global sales at Fiji Airways. He was regional general manager Australia from 2012 and before that he spent eight years with Air New Zealand in various managerial roles, including leading the sales organisation in Australia.

During this week’s planning session at Hawaiian Airlines, Hawaiian’s director of sales for Australia and partnerships manager Australia and New Zealand, Karen Macmillan, presented Stanbury with a traditional Hawaiian lei to formally welcome him to the Hawaiian Airlines ohana (family).

Stanbury joins at an auspicious time for Hawaiian Airlines, which recently announced impessive system-wide traffic statistics for the calendar year ended 31 December 2018.

Hawaiian carried a record 11,840,178 passengers in 2018, a 2.9% increase over the previous year. The record number of passengers in 2018 marks 14 straight years of growth as Hawaiian continues to expand its network and fleet, providing travellers with more options to fly to, from, and within the Hawaiian Islands than any other carrier.

Zealand and Nicholas Dew, Sales and Distribution Specialist.

Hawaiian took delivery of nine A321neo aircraft in 2018, bringing the total size of its A321neo fleet to 11 aircraft. The A321neo will help the airline build upon its already strong US West Coast presence, including new daily non-stop service to Maui’s Kahului Airport from Portland, Sacramento and San Diego international airports, as well as to Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport from Long Beach.

Hawaiian has led all US carriers in on-time performance for each of the past 14 years (2004-2017) as reported by the US Department of Transportation.
