A volcanic eruption in Hawaii will likely dent bookings and revenue in the second quarter, Hawaiian Airlines said.

A powerful eruption at Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano started early last month, forcing evacuations of nearby residents. Hundreds of homes have been destroyed.

Hawaiian said it expects second-quarter revenue for each seat it flies a mile, a key industry metric, will come in 0.5 percent lower to 1.5 percent higher than it did a year ago. The airline previously estimated revenue would be flat to up as much as 3 percent.

Azamara Club Cruises is furthering its partnership with the World Wildlife Fund by offering “World Wildlife at Sea,” a passenger-focused education offering, on select cruises.

The programming will include a series of speakers featuring experts from the non-profit WWF, a leading international conservation organization. For example, WWF’s manager of ranching and conservation will travel with cruisers to a dairy farm in Italy’s Campania region and speak about different ways that farms meet the global food demand with less land and water.

A new report released by WWF has revealed tourists cause a 40 per cent surge in waste entering the Mediterranean Sea, 95 per cent of which is plastic.

Among the worst offenders for plastic pollution were Turkey, Spain, Italy, Egypt and France – countries more than 34 million British people are set to visit this year.
