Hawaiian Airlines clean-up
HAWAIIAN Airlines is preparing to mark its 90th anniversary on 11 Nov, by investing in local communities.
To mark the celebration, more than 50 volunteers from the airline descended on Sydney’s Brighton-Le-Sands Beach for a beach clean-up.
Partnering with non-profit organisation, Tangaroa Blue Foundation and the Bayside City Council, Hawaiian staff and local industry partners recovered 50kg of litter from the shoreline between Brighton-Le-Sands and Monterey, the airline’s Australia and New Zealand Regional Director Andrew Stanbury said.
“We see this milestone as a great opportunity to further invest in the communities we serve,” he said.
“But this initiative at Brighton-Le-Sands is just one of many. We’ve been doing beach cleanups throughout the Pacific, in Japan, Hawaii, New Zealand, etc., and working with our different partners around our network to give back. It’s been a great privilege and, to us, a great way to recognise 90 years of service.”
The group was welcomed by local Gadigal woman Lousie Adermann.
