Creation of the new position coincides with the addition of Hawaiian’s fifth gateway in Japan with the launch of service to Sendai on June 25.

“We are pleased to have Takaya Shishido join our international sales team, given our continued growth and commitment to the Japan market,” said Monisa Cline, Hawaiian Airlines vice president – sales & alliances. “His extensive sales experience in the airline industry and Japan market are well suited to help us grow our international network.”

Takaya spent the last 26 years at American Airlines in a variety of positions including reservations, account manager, leisure & group sales, military and government sales, and most recently as the corporate sales director for Japan.

Sendai will be the 10th new destination Hawaiian has introduced or announced in less than three years.

The company launched service to Tokyo in November 2010, Seoul in January 2011, Osaka in July 2011, Fukuoka in April 2012, New York in June 2012, Sapporo in October 2012, Brisbane in November 2012 and Auckland in March 2013.
