Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 18 August 2009

To meet the company’s current growth needs and  prepare for the first of its new Airbus A330-200 aircraft, Hawaiian Airlines is recruiting new employees.

In recent months, Hawaiian has filled more than 100 positions for aircraft mechanics, service representatives, contract agents, ramp agents, maintenance and cleaning personnel.

By early 2010, an additional 170 jobs will be added, including 25 new pilots and up to 30 flight  attendants, to accommodate Hawaiian’s expansion when the first A330 joins the fleet next April 2010.

The widebody, twin-aisle Airbus A330 aircraft will seat 294 passengers in a two-class configuration and have an operating range of 6,050 nautical miles, giving Hawaiian the ability to fly nonstop to all of North America and points in eastern Asia.

“Everyone at Hawaiian has worked hard to keep our company in the enviable position of pursuing our growth strategy,” said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and CEO. “We’re delighted to be doing our part in helping the state’s economy by welcoming these new employees and the many more that will be joining us in the months ahead.”

Hawaiian currently has 3,756 employees, of which more than 90% live and work in Hawaii. The airline carried nearly 7.9 million passengers in 2008.

In February 2008, Hawaiian signed a purchase agreement with Airbus to acquire six wide-body A330-200 aircraft and six A350XWB-800 (Extra Wide- Body) aircraft, as well as purchase rights for an additional six of each model. In October 2008, the company signed lease agreements to acquire an additional three A330s.
