Hawaiian Airlines is expanding its operations to create a Maui hub that will increase service between the Valley Isle and other neighbor islands by 25 percent and improve connections to and from the West Coast.
The carrier said today it is increasing its daily neighbor island schedule by an additional 23 to 25 flights over the next several weeks. More than half of the added flights will serve the new Maui hub with one-third providing additional nonstop service between Maui and both Hawaii island and Kauai.
Hawaiian is supporting the expanded flights schedule with three Boeing 717-200s jets that it recently acquired.
