Hawaiian unveils 3 new year-round west coast routes

Hawaiian Airlines will expand its US West Coast presence with the arrival of an A321neo fleet by adding three new non-stop daily routes early next year: Portland-Maui; Oakland-Kaua´i; and Los Angeles-Kona, the company said.

The routes will offer guests more options for direct access to Hawaiian´s neighbor islands while enjoying the company´s award-winning, warm hospitality in the comfort of medium-haul, single-aisle A321neo aircraft.

The new A321neo service between Portland (PDX) and Maui (OGG) will launch on Jan. 18.

Hawaiian´s seasonal widebody service currently offered between Oakland (OAK) and Kaua´i (LIH) through Sept. 4 will resume April 11 as a daily A321neo flight.

Daily service between Los Angeles (LAX) and Kona (KOA) on the Island of Hawai´i launches March 11 with widebody aircraft before the A321neo is introduced in the summer of 2018.

Hawaiian´s inaugural A321neo flight between the US West Coast and Hawai´i is planned for Jan. 8 on its existing OAK-OGG service. Additional routes will be announced as Hawaiian welcomes 18 new A321neo aircraft between the fourth quarter of 2017 and 2020.

Hawaiian®, the world´s most punctual airline as reported by OAG, has led all US carriers in on-time performance for each of the past 13 years (2004-2016) as reported by the US Department of Transportation. Consumer surveys by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure have placed Hawaiian among the top of all domestic airlines serving Hawai´i.

Now in its 88th year of continuous service, Hawaiian is Hawai´i´s biggest and longest-serving airline.
