The crew of flight AB8406 from Dusseldorf, Alitalia employees and airberlin ground crew greeted the first flights with an official “Benvenuto Linate”.
The codeshare agreement between the airberlin group and Alitalia allows the airlines to offer their passengers a total of all the 412 non-stop flights of airberlin, NIKI and Alitalia between Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy under a joint flight number.

This year’s festivities concluded with a black-tie gala on Saturday, Oct. 25 at American’s Hangar 5 at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
More than 1,000 American Airlines employees volunteered their time to make Sky Ball XII a success.
Proceeds from the event will enable the Airpower Foundation to provide much needed support to nonprofit organizations and military families throughout the United States.
“The Airpower Foundation is extremely grateful to American Airlines for its support of Sky Ball XII,” said Roman Palomares, chairman of the Airpower Foundation.
“Over the past four years, the American Airlines Sky Ball has raised more than $5.1 million to benefit many deserving military charitable organizations.
As the title sponsor of Sky Ball, American and its more than 1,000 employee volunteers have truly made the difference in our ability to support our nation’s service members and their families.”
Sky Ball XII included a special tribute to those who have served in Korea, as well as a branch-of-service salute to the United States Navy.
The event was attended by more than 2,300 people, including 17 Medal of Honor recipients, wounded warriors, military officials and other distinguished guests, including actors Gary Sinise and John Ratzenberger.
Highlights of the evening included performances by Christopher Cross, “America’s Tenor” Steve Amerson and Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band, a four-course dinner prepared by Chef Robert Irvine, military and American Airlines aircraft on static display, and the donation of an exoskeleton walking device to the Dallas VA Medical Center.
The Saturday night gala was the culmination of a series of events over three days that included a veteran-focused career expo and professional-development seminar, educational outreach programs, a Salute to Citizen Heroes concert featuring The Randy Rogers Band and Lee Greenwood, and the world premiere of the PBS documentary “Navy SEALs – Their Untold Story.”
Sky Ball XII set a fundraising record of $1.9 million. Proceeds from this year’s event will allow the Airpower Foundation to assist organizations such as Snowball Express, an annual gathering of nearly 2,000 children and spouses of fallen military members, and Carrick Brain Centers, which treats service members impacted by post-traumatic stress and significant brain injuries.
American Airlines has a long history of supporting U.S. service members, veterans and their families. Military and veterans programs are a strong priority for American and its employees, reflecting the airline’s commitment to honor the bravery and dedication of those who serve our country.
More than 60 percent of American’s pilots and 10 percent of all the airline’s employees are active service members or veterans.
American supports members of the military, veterans and their families through contributions to nonprofit organizations and employee engagement in a wide variety of events and activities.

The Resort Group (TRG), one of Hawai‘i’s largest landowners of resort developments; Westbank (WB), Canada’s premier luxury hotel and residential developer; and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts have confirmed plans for Four Seasons Resort O‘ahu at Ko Olina, an integrated luxury beach resort and private residences that will be the jewel in the crown of the master-planned Ko Olina development.
Jeffrey R. Stone, TRG’s founder and master developer of Ko Olina, and Westbank founder Ian Gillespie will oversee the development of Four Seasons Resort O‘ahu at Ko Olina, which will encompass a reinspired Ihilani Resort.
The new resort will introduce the first Four Seasons-branded private residences in Hawai‘i, offering the unparalleled service that has made the luxury brand famous throughout the world.
“This is the fulfillment of a long-held dream for Ko Olina,” Mr. Stone said. “Four Seasons previously explored bringing its quality, elegance and prestige to O‘ahu as the company has done so well on Maui, Hawai‘i Island and Lana‘i.
We will oversee this new development with the same stewardship, integrity and sustainability that have made Ko Olina a lasting success.
This project will generate substantial, long-term economic benefits to the area for future generations.”
Isadore Sharp, Founder and Chairman of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, noted that island royalty and the world’s elite have long enjoyed Ko Olina, or “place of joy” in Hawaiian, as an exclusive gathering place.
“Ko Olina on O‘ahu, with its pristine natural beauty, is an ideal place for Four Seasons to create a world-class resort and residential experience that exemplifies Hawaiian hospitality at its best,” said Mr. Sharp.
Four Seasons President and Chief Executive Officer J. Allen Smith added, “Four Seasons is committed to Hawai‘i with our existing four hotels on three islands, and we are thrilled with the opportunity to bring the brand to O‘ahu, the travel and business hub of the Pacific.”
With the reacquisition of Ihilani from Cornerstone Real Estate Advisors complete, Westbank will take the development lead on Four Seasons Resort O‘ahu at Ko Olina. Known for its unique design expertise and high-quality developments throughout North America, Westbank has assembled an internationally acclaimed team to transform Ihilani into one of Hawai‘i’s finest luxury resorts.
Westbank’s design team for this project includes James K.M. Cheng Architects, 2013 Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Toyo Ito, Group 70 International, Philpotts Interiors, and SWA Group.
“Ihilani has the classic architecture of Edward Killingsworth, the property’s original architect. He is still recognized as one of the most accomplished architects in the world,” Mr. Gillespie said.
“This property was the last newly-built hotel on O‘ahu, and architect Toyo Ito, also a fan of Killingsworth, has been inspired by the potential to enhance the natural lushness and breathe new life into this beautiful resort and tropical setting.”
Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell said, “We welcome the very first Four Seasons hotel or resort to O‘ahu.
The addition of this world-renowned hotel brand will enhance O‘ahu’s tourism base and support economic growth on the leeward coast.
The city looks forward to working with Four Seasons on their expansion plans and the growth opportunities they bring to Ko Olina.”
Ko Olina is located on the sunny west side of O‘ahu. Originally conceived in the mid-1980s, the resort has been reaffirmed many times over the years, most recently by the notable success of Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, which debuted in 2011.
The 650-acre (263-hectare) master-planned community also features Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club; several private resort residential communities; Hawai‘i’s only private deep-draft marina; the award-winning Ko Olina Golf Club; four oceanfront white sand lagoons connected by 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometres) of shoreline pathways; access to a diverse selection of ocean and outdoor activities; and the island’s best weather, all located 17 miles (27 kilometres) from the Honolulu International Airport.
