With the first of its new fleet of long range, wide-body Airbus A330-200 aircraft arriving in April 2010, Hawaiian Airlines will expand its service from Hawaii’s largest visitor markets for the summer peak travel season with the addition of three daily flights to Hawaii from California.

Hawaiian will put the first two of its new A330 aircraft into service on the Los Angeles-Honolulu route starting in June.

Hawaiian is also adding two daily nonstop flights to Maui – one from Oakland and the other from San Diego – as well as another daily flight between Los Angeles and Honolulu, beginning June 17, 2010.

Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and CEO, said, “The arrival of the first of our new long range Airbus aircraft gives us the opportunity to expand our service from Hawaii’s largest visitor market when travel demand is at its highest.”

The new daily flight between Oakland and Maui is a first for Hawaiian. Flight #23 will depart Oakland daily at 12:20 p.m. and arrive in Maui at 2:20 p.m. Return Flight #24 will depart Maui daily at 9:35 p.m. and arrive in Oakland the following morning at 5:30 a.m. The new flight runs through September 6, 2010.

Hawaiian will also offer daily service between San Diego and Maui for the first time since summer 2008. Flight #37 will depart San Diego daily at 10:35 a.m. and arrive in Maui at 1:05 p.m. Return Flight #38 will depart Maui at 10:30 p.m. and arrive in San Diego at 6:35 a.m. the following morning. The new seasonal service concludes August 24, 2010.

Hawaiian will supplement its daily Los Angeles-Honolulu service with a new flight using the wide-body, twin-aisle A330-200 aircraft, which seats 294 passengers – 30 more seats than the Boeing 767-300 – in a two-class configuration. Flight #3 will depart Los Angeles daily at 10:45 a.m. and arrive in Honolulu at 1:15 p.m. Return Flight #4 will depart Honolulu daily at 10:30 p.m. and arrive in Los Angeles the following morning at 6:55 a.m. The extra flight runs through September 6, 2010.

Hawaiian’s first three A330-200 aircraft are being leased and will join the fleet starting next April. In addition, Hawaiian has signed a purchase agreement with Airbus to acquire six wide-body A330-200 aircraft (starting in 2012) and six A350XWB-800 aircraft (starting in 2017), as well as purchase rights for an additional six aircraft of each model.
