HONOLULU – November 03, 2010 - Hawaiian Airlines announced today that its twice-weekly flight schedule between Honolulu and Pago Pago, American Samoa, in 2011 will be offered on Mondays and Thursdays, effective Monday, January 17. Currently, flights are offered on Sundays and Thursdays.

 

Keoni Wagner, Hawaiian’s vice president of public affairs, commented, “Knowing that our customers in American Samoa prefer not to travel on Sundays, we found an opportunity in recent fleet scheduling adjustments to change our Sunday flight to Mondays.”

 

Starting January 17, Hawaiian’s Flight #465 will depart Honolulu on Mondays and Thursdays at 5:00 p.m. and arrive in Pago Pago at 9:40 p.m. Return Flight #466 will depart Pago Pago at 11:20 p.m. those same days and arrive in Honolulu the following morning at 5:40 a.m.
