Hawaiian to launch Honolulu-New York City flights

By Star-Advertiser Staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:55 a.m. HST, Jun 04, 2012

Hawaiian Airlines will begin offering year-round flights between Honolulu and New York City today.

Daily service between Honolulu International Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport begins today.

Inaugural Flight 50 — playing off the television show "Hawaii Five-0" — will depart Honolulu at 3:05 p.m. Monday and arrive in New York City at 6:55 a.m. Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Flight 51 will depart Kennedy airport at 10 a.m. and arrive in Honolulu at 3 p.m.

The Hawaii Tourism Authority estimates the new flights will generate $156 million in direct visitor spending and $17 million in state tax revenue annual for Hawaii's tourism economy.

Hawaiian will compete with United Airlines which flies daily non-stop to Newark, N. J.
