Hawaiian Airlines awarded Haneda-Honolulu daytime route

Hawaiian Airlines has received tentative approval from the US Department of Transportation (DOT) to shift its current daily flight between Honolulu and Tokyo´s Haneda International Airport in to a daytime schedule, the company said.

The new flights will begin on October 29, 2016.

This morning´s tentative award follows a DOT ruling in May granting Hawaiian a nighttime slot pair to provide daily service between Haneda and Kona three times weekly and Haneda and Honolulu four times weekly. That service will launch on December 20, 2016, giving Hawaiian Airlines two daily flights between Haneda and the Hawaiian Islands.

Hawaiian Airlines is a long-serving airline, and provider of passenger air service from its primary visitor markets on the US Mainland. Hawaiian offers non-stop service to Hawai´i from more 11 US gateway cities. Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. is a subsidiary of Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HA).
