Hawaiian Airlines announced that they would be adding more nonstop flight options out of Los Angeles to Hawaii later this year.
Per Hawaiian Airlines, they will extend their non-stop service between Los Angeles and Līhuʻe, Kauaʻi, expanding on the popular seasonal routes the airline has offered during the peak summer travel period. Additionally, even more flights between Los Angeles and Maui and Kauaʻi have been added from December 2015 to January 2016, offering an increased schedule with more flexibility for holiday travelers.
“Again this year we are pleased to offer additional service over the peak holiday season to address strong demand for travel to Hawaiʻi,” said Peter Ingram, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Hawaiian Airlines. “We are also pleased to follow on the success of our summer flights between Los Angeles and Līhuʻe by extending these direct flights beyond the routine seasonal service.”
Hawaiian is currently operating on its summer schedule with four flights weekly between Los Angeles (LAX) and Līhuʻe, Kauaʻi (LIH). During the holiday season, flights will increase to five per week Dec. 18 through Jan. 4. Once the seasonal service ends in early January, Hawaiian will continue operating three weekly flights starting Jan.8, marking the first time direct service between LAX and LIH has been offered outside of Hawaiian’s seasonal schedule.
Hawaiian Airlines currently provides daily non-stop service between LAX and Kahului, Maui (OGG). Beginning Dec. 17, a second flight will be added, operating four-times weekly until Jan. 3, adding close to 20,000 seats to both Los Angeles and Maui travel markets.
The LAX-OGG seasonal flight additions will be operated by Hawaiian Airlines’ wide-body Airbus A330-200 aircraft, seating 294 passengers. The LAX-LIH flight additions will be operated by Hawaiian Airlines’ wide-body, twin-aisle Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, seating up to 264 passengers.
I’m glad to see this additional flights out of Los Angeles to Hawaii as more flights usually mean lower fares. Other airlines currently serving Hawaii from Los Angeles include Delta, American, and United in addition to Hawaiian’s current flights.
