A330 Flight Attendant Coffee

Hawaiian, which began serving Japan in 2010 with one daily flight between Tokyo’s Haneda Airport (HND) and Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL), has become the leading U.S. carrier on the Japan-Hawai‘i route. Today, Hawaiian offers 31 weekly non-stop flights utilizing its Airbus A330 wide-body aircraft fleet between Hawai‘i and Japan, serving both Haneda and Narita (NRT) airports in Tokyo, as well as Kansai International Airport (KIX) in Osaka and New Chitose Airport (CTS) in Sapporo.

Hawaiian’s robust Japan business is spurring continued investment in the market. Last month, Hawaiian secured preliminary approval from the U.S. Department of Transportation to operate a new HND slot and provide additional Honolulu-Tokyo service ahead of the 2020 Olympic Summer Games. The ruling came just days after Hawaiian announced its intention to launch four weekly non-stop flights between Fukuoka (FUK) and Honolulu as soon as November 2019, pending government approvals for the new service.

Meanwhile, the airline is currently waiting for U.S. and Japanese government regulators to approve a proposed antitrust immunized joint venture between Hawaiian and its codeshare partner, Japan Airlines, that would deliver a range of additional consumer benefits.
