Hawaiian Airlines plans 4th nonstop to Japan from Honolulu

Hawaiian Airlines said it has announced plans to begin daily nonstop service between Narita International Airport (NRT) and Honolulu International Airport (HNL) starting July 22, 2016.

Hawaiian´s new Narita route will complement its existing daily service to Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND), providing two daily flight options to travelers in the Greater Tokyo region.

Starting July 22, 2016, Hawaiian´s Flight HA 821 will depart Honolulu daily at 3:30 p.m., cross the international dateline, and arrive at Narita International Airport at 7 p.m. the following day. Beginning July 23, the return Flight HA 822 will depart from Narita at 9 p.m., cross the international dateline, and arrive at Honolulu International Airport at 9:55 a.m. the same day.

“Japan is Hawai´i´s largest international market with arrivals from the market making up 18 percent of total arrivals to the state in 2014,” said George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawai´i Tourism Authority.

Enhancing the enjoyment of the travel experience will be Hawaiian´s signature Mea Ho´okipa (translation: I am host) inflight service philosophy, long celebrated for its perpetuation of the authentic culture, people and Aloha Spirit of the islands.
