Hawaiian Airlines will be meeting with thousands of applicants for newly created flight attendant positions.
The airline will be holding group interviews of 2,200 people Monday in downtown Honolulu’s Blaisdell Center to fill 275 job openings.
Hawaiian says the jobs are part of a continued plan for growth in new domestic and international markets. Next year, the airline will begin daily nonstop service from Honolulu to Japan and New York City.
The Hawaii Tourism Authority says the new routes will add an estimated $310 million in visitor spending and $34 million in tax revenue to the state’s economy.
