Hawaiian goes daily to Sydney
Hawaiian Airlines will increase its Honolulu-Sydney services from four flights per week to daily services from tomorrow (6 April) until 1 August. The seasonal increase is the first time Hawaiian Airlines has operated daily to Australia.
From 2 August, Hawaiian will revert to five flights per week from Sydney. All flights are operated with two class Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, seating 264 passengers.
“Ever since we launched nonstop flights from Sydney to Honolulu in May 2004, tourist travel from Australia to Hawaii has continued to grow,” said Sherilyn Robinson, General Manager, Sales and Marketing for Hawaiian Airlines in Australia.
“Now with our increased flights from Sydney, we will have the ability to carry substantially more passengers during the peak travel season,” Ms Robinson said.
As well as flying to Honolulu, Hawaiian offers onward service to the neighbouring islands of Maui, Kauai and The Big Island of Hawaii, and connections to 10 US mainland cities – Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, San Jose, Oakland, San Diego and Phoenix.
“Hawaii is an exciting destination in its own right for leisure travel – andis just an overnight flight from Australia,” said Ms Robinson. “But for leisure or business travellers to the US mainland, Hawaii is also just the place for a relaxing stopover on the way home to Australia, offering a vast range of activities, shopping options and great opportunities to simply stop and relax.
“The continuing strength of the Australian dollar and competitive pricing throughout Hawaii make a visit to the islands of Aloha even more attractive,” she added.
Hawaiian Airlines flight HA 452 departs Sydney at 9.20pm, crossing the international dateline and arriving in Honolulu at 11.00am the same day. The return service, HA 451, leaves Honolulu at 12.40pm, arriving in Sydney at 7.20pm the following day.
