HONOLULU – Sep. 15, 2006 - The Oakland Raiders will wing their way to Baltimore this week for their first road game of the season – and Hawaiian Airlines is again the team's carrier of choice.
This marks the seventh consecutive year that Hawaiian is providing its special brand of chartered, nonstop air service to players, coaches, trainers and officials aboard its wide-body, twin-aisle Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.
Always a hit with the players, Hawaiian's “Silver and Black” in-flight service features hearty, extra-large meals for players that include fresh fruit, candy baskets and any special requests. Up to three first-run movies will be shown during flights.
Raiders executive Marc Badain commented, “Hawaiian Airlines continues to demonstrate a true ‘Commitment to Excellence.' Our players, coaches and staff look forward to a seventh consecutive season of first-class service.”
In addition to Baltimore, Hawaiian will fly the Raiders to away games in Denver, Seattle, Kansas City, San Diego, Cincinnati, and New York. Hawaiian also has first option to fly “The Team of the Decades” to any road playoff game, including Super Bowl XLI in Miami.
