HONOLULU, Hawaii – Hawaiian Airlines will boost its service to Hawaii from the heart of the state’s single-largest visitor market with the addition of a third daily flight between Los Angeles and Honolulu on a year-round basis, starting in June 2012. Hawaiian had previously offered this flight on a seasonal basis to accommodate peak summer travel demand.
“The growth of our long-haul fleet allows us to add this third daily flight on a permanent basis to better accommodate the strong demand for our service in southern California year-round and provide our customers with more schedule options,” said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and CEO.
Hawaiian’s increasing the seasonal flight to year-round service will add more than 70,000 air seats annually between the two cities.
Starting June 7, 2012, Hawaiian’s Flight #3 will depart Los Angeles International Airport daily at 10:30 a.m. and arrive at Honolulu International Airport at 1:10 p.m. The return Flight #4 will depart Honolulu daily at 10:20 p.m. and arrive in Los Angeles the following morning at 6:45 a.m.
The flight’s mid-morning departure from Los Angeles offers an alternative to Hawaiian’s earlier departure, yet still allows travelers enough time on arrival to spend the afternoon exploring Oahu or connect to a Neighbor Island in time to enjoy a first sunset on the beach. The schedule’s late evening return from Honolulu allows visitors a full final day in Hawaii before returning home.
Hawaiian currently operates two daily flights between Los Angeles and Honolulu. Hawaiian Flight #1 departs Los Angeles daily at 8:55 a.m. and arrives in Honolulu at 12:45 p.m., with the return Flight #2 departing Honolulu daily at 3:05 p.m. and arriving in Los Angeles at 10:30 p.m. Hawaiian Flight #9 departs Los Angeles daily at 5:05 p.m. and arrives in Honolulu at 9:00 p.m., with the return Flight #10 departing Honolulu at 8:00 a.m. and arriving in Los Angeles at 3:25 p.m.
