Hawaiian Adds Flights to New Zealand and Australia

Hawaiian Adds Flights to New Zealand and Australia

Hawaiian Airlines has announced the addition of 31 seasonal flights to its established schedules in September and October between Honolulu and its three Oceania gateways – Auckland, New Zealand, which launches on 13 March, and Sydney and Brisbane in Australia.

The new flights will add approximately 8,800 new air seats on the three routes during a peak travel period for Kiwi and Australian travellers.

Peter Ingram, Hawaiian’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer, said, “Demand for our services in New Zealand and Australia is particularly strong during this period when schools are out and families are on holiday. These extra flights also offer travelers in Hawai‘i and North America more options for visiting New Zealand and Australia at a beautiful time of year.”

For its service connecting Auckland and Honolulu, Hawaiian is increasing from three to four flights per week from 19 September to 11 October, adding four extra flights to the schedule.

Hawaiian is increasing its Sydney-Honolulu service from daily to 10 flights per week from 11 September to 19 October, adding 17 extra flights to the schedule.

Between Brisbane and Honolulu, Hawaiian is increasing from three to five flights per week from 13 September to 14 October, adding 10 extra flights to the schedule.

Travellers flying on Hawaiian between North America and any of its international destinations can take advantage of free stopovers in Hawai‘i, giving them added flexibility in planning trips.
