Hawaiian Airlines

Hawaiian Airlines

Hawaiian Airlines is Hawai‘i's biggest and longest-serving airline, welcoming onboard guests traveling to, from and within the Hawaiian Islands. In 2019, Hawaiian offered nonstop flights between Hawai‘i and more U.S. gateway cities (13) than any other airline, along with service connecting the islands with Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa and Tahiti.

As Hawai`i’s hometown airline – with the majority of its employees residing in Hawai`i and every one of its flights touching the islands – Hawaiian is committed to operating sustainably and preserving the environment and natural resources that visitors come to Hawai`i to experience, and which are inextricably tied to the social, economic and cultural wellbeing of the state.

Hawaiian has made significant investments to modernize its fleet, increase fuel efficiency and decrease its carbon footprint. The carrier’s pledge to limit its environmental impact extends to its ground operations, where energy efficiency is a driving factor in building design, renovations and daily operations.

Energy use at Hawaiian’s Honolulu headquarters has dropped by approximately 5 percent between 2016 and 2018 through motion sensors, LED lighting and tinted windows. Its 295,800-square-foot maintenance and cargo facility is LEED-certified as an energy-efficient green building.

The airline recently partnered with Carbon Lighthouse, an environmental organization that works to make commercial buildings carbon neutral, to modernize its Airport Center building and expects to lower current energy consumption by approximately 24 percent by 2021. In February 2020, Hawaiian became the first U.S. airline to join the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Challenge, committing to reducing electricity consumption by 20 percent by 2030.
