Hawaiian Airlines expands inter-island services

Travel News Asia 17 June 2004

Travellers will soon have even more opportunities to explore Hawaii, with the announcement today that Hawaiian Airlines will increase its existing inter-island services and add new routes through a code share deal with Island Air.

Hawaiian Airlines will increase its Boeing 717 jet services from Honolulu to Maui, and to Hilo, on The Big Island of Hawaii, effective from 1 August.

From the same date, Hawaiian also will start code sharing with Island Air, which operates high-frequency flights to smaller airports on the islands of Molokai and Lanai, and to the West Maui resort of Kapalua.

Our new flights and code share services from Honolulu to the islands will provide visitors with an even greater choice of destinations and departure times when they visit Hawaii, said Mr Scott Cammell, Hawaiians Sales and Marketing Manager, Australia.

Our inter-island capacity will increase by a massive 184,000 seats, or 17 per cent, during this northern hemisphere summer, when we will fly a weekday average of 115 inter-island flights, and 123 services each Saturday and Sunday, said Mr Cammell.

In addition to these services, we will code share on Island Airs seven flights per day from Honolulu to Lanai and eight flights per day from Honolulu to Molokai, using comfortable 37-seat de Havilland Dash 8 aircraft.

These services by Island Air will replace a single daily flight on each route by larger Hawaiian Airlines aircraft, and will make Lanai, Molokai and West Maui much more accessible to visitors.
