History Will Be Kind (HWBK) is taking to the skies in 2019, bolstering its travel portfolio by partnering with one of the world’s leading airlines, Etihad Airways.
HWBK has been appointed as the brand’s key communications partner in Australia, tasked with helping to further build the airline’s market profile and growing its voice across both consumer and trade channels.
Etihad general manager of AUNZ, Sarah Built, said her team is excited to fly into 2019 with HWBK and further cement Etihad’s reputation as an airline of choice for Australian travellers.
Built said: “It’s an exciting time at Etihad with the recent introduction of our new Choose Well brand platform, which is designed to empower our guests to make choices about how they travel on their own terms.
“Australia is one of our most important global markets and HWBK is the ideal agency partner to help us showcase our evolving guest proposition in a bold way, fuelling market expansion and deepening our connections.”
