Star-Bulletin staff


Hawaiian Airlines Inc. today named a former Navy aviator and commercial airline veteran, Robert W. Zoller Jr., to the new position of executive vice president for operations and services.

Zoller will have overall responsibility for flight operations, in-flight catering, maintenance, engineering, airport services and system operations controls.

Those departments had reported directly to Paul J. Casey, president and chief executive officer.

Zoller comes from three years with AirTran, the Orlando, Fla-based airline that recently took delivery of the first Boeing 717 jet from the Boeing factory. Casey said that makes him a good fit at Hawaiian, which has ordered 13 of the new jets.

Zoller was with American Airlines from 1991 to 1996 and served as vice president of operations at AMR Eagle Inc. and managing director of Eagle Aviation Services Inc.

Earlier he had executive positions with other airlines.
