Southwest Airlines said it plans to resume its expansion in Hawaii next month, which had been delayed due to the grounding of Boeing 737 Max planes, the company said.
Southwest Airlines has announced it plans to resume its expansion of service to Hawaii next month, which had been delayed due to the grounding of Boeing 737 Max planes by the FAA following crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.
Southwest said demand for service to, from and within Hawaii is robust with higher load factors than what the company experienced across the system.
Southwest announced Thursday that it plans to cease operations at Newark Liberty International Airport and consolidate its New York City presence at New York LaGuardia Airport effective Nov. 3.
Southwest already has 16 inter-island flights, or 1,800 daily inter-island air seats. The carrier has added 2,100 daily trans-Pacific air seats through the 12 daily trans-Pacific flights that it offers to and from Hawaii.
