Mai tais, champagne and candles: What's the occasion?

Two big names in travel are marking milestones on Wednesday.

Hawaiian Airlines is celebrating five years of service between Auckland and Honolulu. Its entrance into the market brought about more competitive pricing on the route.

Starting this month the airline will increase the frequency of flights between the two cities from three to five a week.

Hawaiian Airlines CEO Peter Ingram said the airline has flown 270,000 passengers on the route since they launched it on 2013.

Meanwhile the champagne is popping at Boeing in Washington State where they are celebrating the 10,000th 737 aircraft to come off their production line.

The achievement sees the team beat their own Guinness World Record for most airplanes off a production line.

The 737 is one of the most popular aircraft in the world, so much so that one takes off or lands every one and a half seconds. Twenty-two billion people have flown on one, and their combined distance travelled would have one fly around the world 5 million times.
