Hawaiian Airlines to discontinue Honolulu/Beijing service

Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. had announced its decision to suspend its three weekly nonstop service between Honolulu´s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) and Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK), the company said.

Service will end upon the completion of the National Day Golden Week holiday in October. The airline, which started the service in April 2014, will re-deploy its 278-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft elsewhere in its network.

Hawaiian set the suspension date after the National Day Golden Week holiday (Oct. 1 through Oct. 7 this year) to minimize disruptions to guests.

Because Hawaiian intends to return to China, the airline will maintain a strong sales partnership with BEALL, its general sales agent in China, and maintain its China representative office.

Hawaiian Airlines has led all US carriers in on-time performance for each of the past 14 years (2004-2017) as reported by the US Department of Transportation. Hawaiian Airlines, Inc. is a subsidiary of Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HA).
