HONOLULU – Hawaiian Airlines will resume daily service between Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) and Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND) on Aug. 1. Hawaiian, which today offers three weekly flights between HNL and Narita Airport (NRT) and one weekly flight between HNL and Osaka’s Kansai Airport (KIX), will also bring daily service to each route in August.
“Japan is the centerpiece international market for Hawai‘i, and we’re excited to bring back more flights and encouraged by the progressive easing of travel restrictions by the Japanese government,” said Theo Panagiotoulias, senior vice president of global sales and alliances for Hawaiian Airlines. “Demand from Japan has been steady, but we anticipate strong interest for leisure travel in the coming months and look forward to welcoming more visitors safely and responsibly.”
Hawaiian Airlines flight HA863 will depart HNL at 1:55 p.m., with an estimated arrival at HND at 5:10 p.m. the following day. The return flight, HA864, will depart HND at 8:15 p.m. and arrive at HNL at 9:05 a.m. the same day.
Earlier this month, Hawaiian launched its Boarding Pass campaign to encourage guests arriving from Japan to support local businesses during their visit to the islands. Guests can show their Hawaiian Airlines boarding pass at partner stores, including Foodland, Honolulu Cookie Company, Local Motion, Jana Lam and more, to receive special discounts and offers.
Hawaiian has not yet announced dates for service resumption to Fukuoka, Sapporo and Kona-Haneda. U.S. travelers should be aware of restrictions affecting entry into Japan.
