Hawaiian Airlines is going to send 2 million face masks to Hawaii

 Monday, April 20, 2020

Hawaiian Airlines has transported a cargo flight to China which will bring 2 million face masks back to the islands of Hawaii.



The effort is in partnership with the grassroots community group Every1ne Hawaii. The airline says it had to make room in the Airbus A330 aircraft in order to fit all of the masks.



The employees removed the airplane’s lower deck crew rest module, which is located underneath the passenger cabin. The removal of the crew module will open up space and allow the plane to carry more than 2,500 more pounds of cargo.



Four Hawaiian Airlines pilots, two mechanics and two airport operations employees on board the aircraft will stop off in South Korea before heading to their final destination in China, where they will pick up the masks. The plane is schedule to arrive back in Honolulu on Monday evening.



More than 2 million face masks will be transported to nonprofits around Honolulu and then distributed to those in need.
