HONOLULU – February 25, 2013 - 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, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland, New Zealand, which launches on March 13.
The new flights will add approximately 8,800 new air seats on the three routes during a peak travel period for Australian and Kiwi travelers.
Peter Ingram, Hawaiian’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer, said, “Demand for our services in Australia and New Zealand 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 Australia and New Zealand at a beautiful time of year.”
