Travel Daily - - News -

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.
