Recognizing the strength of visitor demand for vacations to the Garden Isle, Hawaiian Airlines said it will increase travel options between Kaua´i and California during the summer of 2016.
Daily service between Lihu´e and Oakland and Los Angeles will take place during the peak travel months from mid-June through September.
Additionally, Hawaiian will reinstate non-stop service to Kona from both Oakland and Los Angeles as part of the airline´s popular seasonal routes.
Beginning May 27, the airline will offer three-times weekly service from Oakland to both Lihu´e and Kona, four-times weekly service from Los Angeles to Kona, and increase its regular nonstop service between Los Angeles and Lihu´e to four-times weekly. From mid-June through Sept. 5, service to Kaua´i from both Oakland and Los Angeles will be offered daily.
The seasonal Oakland and Los Angeles service to the islands of Kaua´i and Hawai´i will add nearly 74,000 air seats to these travel markets over 14 weeks of service. The flights to Kona will be operated by Hawaiian Airlines´ wide-body, twin-aisle Airbus A330 aircraft, seating 294 passengers in a three-class cabin, with 18 in First Class, 40 in Extra Comfort and 236 in the Main Cabin.
