Hawaiian has also led all U.S. carriers in on-time performance for 18 consecutive years (2004-2021) as reported by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The airline is committed to connecting people with aloha by offering complimentary meals for all guests on transpacific routes and the convenience of no change fees on Main Cabin and Premium Cabin seats. HawaiianMiles members also enjoy flexibility with miles that never expire.

Official Bank Sponsor

Central Pacific Bank

The Made in Hawaii Festival supports our local small businesses and entrepreneurs, not just survive, but thrive. Likewise, CPB has a 70-year legacy of helping all of Hawaii’s people and believes the greater diversity in the economy, the greater it is for the community as a whole. In fact, no other Hawaii bank does more to help small businesses than Central Pacific Bank. That’s why CPB is pleased to be the “Official Bank of the Made in Hawaii Festival,” providing financial resources for businesses to participate in the Festival. But its support of small business does not stop there. CPB founded the groundbreaking WE by Rising Tide program for women business owners providing the knowledge, networking, and resources they need to take their operations to new heights. During the pandemic, CPB made more PPP loans to businesses than all other local banks. CPB is proud to have been recognized by the U.S. Small Business Association Hawaii District Office with the most awards and honors for making more loans to small businesses than all the other local banks combined. In addition, CPB was named to the 2024 list of America’s Best Regional Banks and Credit Unions by Newsweek because of the trust we inspire and our exceptional customer service. These are just a few of the reasons why CPB is where people like banking. Mahalo to the Made in Hawaii Festival organizers for creating an event that truly showcases the creative talents and exquisite craftsmanship that is unique to our islands and the aloha spirit.
