Hawaiian Airlines has signed a one-year agreement to become the official airline partner of the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa Athletics. Hawai‘i’s largest and longest-serving carrier will welcome onboard student-athletes, coaches and staff from all 21 UH-Manoa sports teams as they travel between Hawai‘i and North America to compete during the 2017-18 season.
“As Hawai‘i’s hometown carrier, we are delighted to extend our support for our University of Hawai‘i at Manoa student-athletes and their staff with this exclusive agreement,” said Peter Ingram, executive vice president and chief commercial officer for Hawaiian Airlines. “We look forward to delivering our authentic Hawaiian in-flight hospitality so they may arrive rested and ready for game time.”
“This agreement is a difference maker for UH Athletics as it will lead to significant savings,” said UH Athletics Director David Matlin. “We’ve had a very special relationship with Hawaiian Airlines over the years and are proud our teams will continue to fly Hawaiian. They have a special way of taking care of our student-athletes, coaches, and staff and we’re appreciative of all they do for us. Mahalo nui loa Hawaiian!”
