Hawaiian Airlines continued its corporate realignment today with the announcement of Andrew Watterson as its new vice president of planning and revenue management.
Watterson will fill the position previously held by Avi Mannis, who it was announced earlier this week, will be filling an expanded role in marketing as a vice president of marketing. He will be responsible for Hawaiian’s flight scheduling, route planning, revenue management, and ticket pricing.
“Andrew brings to Hawaiian the kind of in-depth, broad-based aviation planning experience and industry knowledge that will be essential to the continued success of our growth and expansion of services,” commented Glenn Taniguchi, Hawaiian’s senior vice president of marketing and sales, in a statement released by the company earlier.
Prior to joining Hawaiian, Watterson spent the past 12 years with the prestigious consulting firm
Oliver Wyman in Dallas where he worked with several U.S. and European airlines to overhaul their pricing and yield management models, increase ancillary revenues, and improve revenue management.
