Hawaiian Air starts ticket sales for new Tokyo flights


HONOLULU – Having received its authorization to operate new international service to Japan from Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, Hawaiian Airlines today announced the start of ticket sales for its new daily nonstop flights between Tokyo’s Haneda Airport and Honolulu.

Hawaiian’s inaugural flight from Honolulu to Haneda is on November 17, with the inaugural departure from Haneda to Honolulu taking place November 19.

“We have received a tremendous response to our announcement of new service to Haneda, and we know travelers have been waiting for this moment,” said Glenn Taniguchi, Hawaiian’s senior vice president of marketing and sales. “Hawaiian will begin flying daily between Haneda and Honolulu less than two months from now, and tickets are now on sale.”

Travelers will enjoy the convenience of Hawaiian’s new service departing and arriving from Haneda Airport, near the city’s center, as well as the authentic Hawaii travel experience that only Hawaiian Airlines can provide.

As the only U.S. carrier offering flights between Haneda and Hawaii, Hawaiian’s new service offers U.S.-originating travelers superior accessibility to Japan’s largest metropolitan area, along with the industry-leading service and frequent flyer benefits for which Hawaiian has become known.

Current HawaiianMiles frequent flyer members can immediately start earning and redeeming mileage award benefits on the new Haneda-Honolulu flight, which covers more than 3,800 miles. HawaiianMiles frequent flyer membership enrollment via Hawaiian’s Japanese-language website will become available in the coming weeks.

Flight #458 will depart Tokyo’s Haneda Airport daily at 11:59 p.m. and arrive at Honolulu International Airport at 12:05 p.m. the same day. Return Flight #457 will depart Honolulu daily at 6:05 p.m. and arrive at Haneda at 10:05 p.m. the next day. (Tokyo is 19 hours ahead of Honolulu and the flight crosses the International Dateline.)

Hawaiian will initially serve the Haneda-Honolulu route using its wide-body, twin-aisle Boeing 767-300ER aircraft seating up to 264 passengers before introducing its new and larger 294-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft onto the route.
