October 23, 2020 / Hawaiian Airlines (HA), Hawaii’s hometown carrier, will reinstate its East Coast flying in December with twice-weekly non-stop services between Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and thrice-weekly service between HNL and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) using Airbus A330-200. At the same time, Hawaiian will resume daily non-stop service between HNL and Long Beach Airport (LGB), offering guests access to its entire 13-city US mainland network including Los Angeles (LAX), Sand Diego (SAN), San Francisco (SFO), Oakland (OAK), San Josè (SJC), Sacramento (SMF), Portland (PDX), Seattle )SEA), Long Beach, Phoenix (PHX), Las Vegas (LAS), New York and Boston.
The state of Hawaii last week began exempting travellers from its 14-day quarantine with proof of a negative COVID-19 state-approved test within 72 hours of the final leg of departure.
Hawaiian will also bring back nonstop flights between Kauai Līhue Airport (LIH) and Los Angeles and Oakland, and between Maui’s Kahului Airport (OGG) and San Diego and San Francisco, utilizing its narrow-body Airbus A321neo aircraft.
“We’re pleased with increased demand for travel to Hawai‘i, and we’re excited to once again offer our East Coast guests the convenience of our nonstop flights as we welcome them to the islands with new health and safety measures,” said Brent Overbeek, senior vice president of revenue management and network planning at Hawaiian Airlines.
