On June 27, Hawaiian Airlines became the first airline in the Americas to deploy SmartKargo. Tim Strauss, Hawaiian’s Vice President-Cargo, said, “My Hawaiian colleagues and SmartKargo have worked hard to make this launch a success, and we couldn’t be happier. SmartKargo is already proving its promise to improve the experience for customers and employees.”
Hawaiian operates a fleet of Airbus A330-200s and Boeing 767-300s for long-range services throughout the Pacific, and Boeing 717s and ATR-42s for flights within the state of Hawai’i. The carrier operates more than 200 daily flights. Because Hawai’i is a collection of islands separated by expanses too wide for bridges or tunnels, Hawaiian Airlines is “the highway in the sky,” serving a pivotal role in delivering a wide array of goods across Hawai’i; and its expanding Pacific network enables them to fly a growing volume of essential imports and well-known Hawaiian exports.
