egtmedia59Hawaiian Airlines has named Takaya Shishido to the airline’s newly-created position of country director for Japan, with the responsibility for leading the company’s Japan sales team and overseeing all sales initiatives in Japan, the airline announced Tuesday.

The creation of the position coincides with the addition of Hawaiian Airlines’ fifth gateway in Japan, with the launch of service to Sendai on June 25.

“We are pleased to have Takaya Shishido join our international sales team, given our continued growth and commitment to the Japan market,” Monisa Cline, Hawaiian Airlines’ vice president of sales and alliances, said in a statement. “His extensive sales experience in the airline industry and Japan market are well suited to help us grow our international network.”

Prior to joining Hawaiian Airlines, a subsidiary of Hawaiian Holdings (Nasdaq: HA), Shishido worked for American Airlines (OTC: AAMRQ) in a variety of positions, the most recent being corporate sales director for Japan.

Sendai will be the 10th new destination Hawaiian Airlines has introduced or announced service to in the last three years. The company launched service to Tokyo in November 2010, Seoul in January 2011, Osaka in July 2011, Fukuoka in April 2012, New York in June 2012, Sapporo in October 2012, Brisbane in November 2012 and Auckland in March 2013. Hawaiian previously announced new service to Taipei, Taiwan starting July 9 and to Beijing, China in April 2014, subject to government approvals.
