Hawaiian Airlines | Nov 1, 2018
Hawaiian Airlines, the leading carrier for service between the Bay Area and Hawai‘i, will serve as the Official Airline of The Oakland Raiders for the 2018 NFL season. For the 19th straight year, Hawai‘i’s flagship airline will share its warm Hawaiian hospitality with players, coaches and trainers as they travel to nine away games, starting with the team’s Aug. 18 contest against the Los Angeles Rams.
“We look forward to welcoming the Raiders onboard so they may once again enjoy our award-winning in-flight experience in the superior comfort of our aircraft as they get ready for kick off,” said Brent Overbeek, senior vice president for revenue management and network planning at Hawaiian Airlines.
“The Raiders are excited to extend our relationship with Hawaiian Airlines, an excellent partner for nearly two decades,” said Raiders President Marc Badain. “Hawaiian is dedicated to providing outstanding comfort and service for the Raiders, helping the players and coaches prepare for football.”
Hawaiian’s designated Airbus A330 aircraft, now equipped with lie-flat leather seats and more Extra Comfort seats, will fly the team more than 22,000 miles to games at Seattle - Seahawks (Aug. 29-31), Denver - Broncos (Sept. 15-16), Miami – Dolphins (Sept. 21-23), Los Angeles – Chargers (Oct. 6-7), Phoenix - Cardinals (Nov. 17-18), Baltimore – Ravens (Nov. 23-25), Cleveland - Browns (Dec. 14-16), and Kansas City – Chiefs (Dec 28-30).

In addition to experiencing Hawaiian’s “Mea Ho‘okipa” (I am host) onboard hospitality, team members will be served hearty, nutritious meals along with an assortment of healthy snacks that include fresh fruit, protein bars and, at the Raiders’ request, products from Hawai‘i, such as Passion Orange Guava Juice and Hawaiian Iced Tea. For entertainment, Hawaiian offers a wide selection of movies, TV shows and music.
Last year, Hawaiian carried more than 1 million guests between Hawai‘i and its Bay Area gateways at the Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose international airports. Hawaiian is also celebrating its 10-year anniversary of service between Oakland and the Hawaiian Islands. The airline offers daily non-stop flights between Oakland and Honolulu on O‘ahu, Līhu‘e on Kaua‘i, and Kahului on Maui.
