HONOLULU – Apr. 2, 2009 - Hawaiian Airlines announced today the addition of a third weekly roundtrip flight for the summer between Honolulu and Pago Pago, American Samoa to address the increased demand in seasonal traffic by its customers.

“Summer is a popular time for families in American Samoa and Hawaii to reconnect, so we’re increasing our service to meet the added demand for air seats by our customers,” said Keoni Wagner, Hawaiian’s vice president of public affairs.
The new summer flight is in addition to the twice-weekly service that Hawaiian offers year-round between Honolulu and Pago Pago on Sundays and Thursdays.
