Hawaiian Airlines is the official airlines of the Oakland Raiders for the 2015 National Football League season, continuing on its years-long partnership that began in 2000.

The company has designated Airbus A330 aircraft featuring the Raiders’ shield to carry the team. Players, coaches, and trainers, along with uniforms and equipment, will use the Airbus to travel between Seattle, Cleveland, Chicago, San Diego, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Tennessee, and Denver through December. The Raiders will take a flight for a preseason game Thursday.

“We are proud to serve as the Oakland Raiders’ carrier of choice for all these years,” said Brent Overbeek, Hawaiian’s vice president of revenue management and network planning.

Hawaiian Airlines brings a taste of aloha, as they do with all flights, to the Raiders’ team, including products from Hawai’i like Passion Orange Guava juice and Hawaiian Iced Tea.

“Hawaiian pairs a winning combination of unmatched comfort with excellent service and they are dedicated to helping the players and coaches get ready for football,” said Raiders’ President Marc Badain.
