Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Tips.com Latest Travel News Thursday, 26 August 2010

Hawaiian Airlines has started ticket sales for its new nonstop flights between Honolulu and South Korea’s Seoul-Incheon International Airport, which will commence with the inaugural departure from Honolulu on 12 January 2011. The inaugural return flight from Incheon will take place 14 January 2011.

Current HawaiianMiles frequent flyer members can immediately start earning and redeeming mileage award benefits on the new flights between Honolulu and Incheon, which covers approximately 4,500 miles one-way. HawaiianMiles membership enrollment via the airline’s new Korean website will be offered in the coming weeks.

Hawaiian designed its flight schedule so that travelers flying from Incheon would have the convenience of departing for vacation after completing a full day of work, and arriving in time to enjoy their first afternoon in Hawaii and make easy flight connections to the Neighbor Islands.

Flight #459 will depart Honolulu International Airport four times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 1:20 p.m. and arrive at Seoul-Incheon International Airport at 8:05 p.m. the following day. The return Flight #460 will depart Incheon on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays at 10:00 p.m. and arrive in Honolulu at 11:00 a.m. the same day. (South Korea is 19 hours ahead of Honolulu and the flight crosses the International Dateline.)

Hawaiian will initially operate the route with its twin-aisle, wide-body Boeing 767-300ER aircraft seating 264 passengers and the four-times weekly service will add more than 54,000 new air seats annually to Hawaii from Seoul.

South Korea represents the second of two major service expansions by Hawaiian into Asia over an upcoming two-month period. On 17 November 2010, Hawaiian will launch daily nonstop service between Honolulu and Tokyo’s Haneda Airport.

In addition, Hawaiian offers its customers the travel benefits of booking flights to other selected destinations in Asia served by Korean Air through the recently expanded codeshare agreement between the two carriers allowing them to jointly market their service. More codeshare destinations in Asia for Hawaiian’s customers are being added in the coming months. Customers of Korean Air can book flights operated by Hawaiian within the islands of Hawaii, as well as between Hawaii and the 10 gateway cities Hawaiian serves in the Western United States.
