This summer you’ll have more choices to include a stay on one or more of the Hawaiian islands with a vacation to New Zealand, Australia, Tahiti or American Samoa – Japan, South Korea, or Taiwan, too.
Hawaiian Airlines is boosting its flights from California to Hawaii, allowing for more options to include a stop-over in Hawaii to break-up the long-haul flight on your way Downunder.
When the airline increases aircraft capacity and launches new Los Angeles to Maui flights beginning in May, travelers will be able to connect to the other Hawaiian islands through Hawaiian’s expanded neighbor island flight schedule.
The new daily year-round flight between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Maui’s Kahului Airport (OGG) has been brought forward by one month and will now begin on May 2, 2014. These flights will be operated by wide-body, twin-aisle Airbus 330-200 aircraft with 18 seats in First Class and 276 in the main economy class cabin.
Hawaiian Airlines also is launching premium economy seating, called Extra Comfort Economy, on all its long-haul flights operated with Airbus A330 aircraft beginning in August.
Premium economy features will include priority boarding, complimentary on-demand in-seat entertainment, individual power outlets for charging electronic gadgets and complimentary pillows and blankets.
Hawaiian Airlines’ A330 amenities include a personal on-demand entertainment system at each seat and increased legroom.
The airline also will add a second daily flight on the LAX to Maui route for eight weeks in the summer – June 30 to September 8 – thereby adding an additional 32,700 seats.
The second daily flight during the summer will be operated by Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with 18 seats in Business Class and 246 seats in the Main Cabin.
Hawaiian’s Boeing 767 features include personal electronic tablets (iPads) available for rent (complimentary in Business class) during the flight and extra legroom.
Both daily flights will also offer complimentary island-style meals and made-in-Hawaii snacks.
Additionally, Hawaiian Airlines announced new non-stop summer flights between Los Angeles and both Lihue (Kauai) and Kona (Hawaii Island) starting in June.
With the launch of the new flights, the airline will offer non-stop flights to all of the four main Hawaiian islands this summer from Southern California.
Hawaiian Airlines will also boost its capacity from Northern California this summer – by launching daily flights from San Jose on May 16 and upgrade the aircraft on its Oakland flights to the 294-seat Airbus A330-200 – adding 60 more seats daily – on June 18.
Hawaiian currently offers daily non-stop service between Oakland and both Honolulu and Kahului (Maui). The airline will also launch new seasonal summer flights between Oakland and both Lihue (Kauai) and Kona (Hawaii Island) in June.
During the summer, Hawaiian will be connected to all four main Hawaiian Islands from Northern California.
