Hawaiian Airlines will launch flights to Tokyo’s Narita Airport next summer.

Commencing on 22 July 2016, the airline will operate daily services to Narita, direct from Honolulu International Airport. This will complement the airline’s existing daily service to Tokyo Haneda Airport, meaning that Hawaiian will offer two daily flights to the Japanese capital.

The new outbound service, HA821, will depart Honolulu daily at 1530 and arrive at Narita at 1900 the following day. The return service, HA822, will then depart Narita at 2100 and arrive back in Honolulu at 0955 the same day. The flight path crosses the International Date Line.

“We’ve had the pleasure of carrying more than 800,000 visitors between Haneda and Honolulu since the launch of our daily A330 service more than five years ago,” said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president & CEO. “With average load factors routinely exceeding 90%, it is clear Japanese travellers have chosen Hawaiian as their carrier of choice when visiting our beautiful islands.

“We are excited to offer even more options for service between Honolulu and the Greater Tokyo region with the launch of a second daily flight from Narita,” he added.

Hawaiian will operate the new route using its 294-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which offers 18 seats in business class and 276 in economy, including 40 ‘Extra Comfort’ seats.

Narita will become the airline’s fourth destination in Japan, following Haneda, Osaka and Sapporo.
