Hawaiian Airlines to launch Taiwan-Honolulu service in July

It didn’t take too long for Hawaiian Airlines to capitalize on Taiwan being added to the U.S. Visa Waiver Program.

The state’s largest and oldest carrier said this morning it plans to launch three-days-a-week service between the capital city of Taipei and Honolulu next summer.

Hawaiian’s announcement came just two months after the United States said it would include Taiwan in the Visa Waiver Program that permits visa-free travel to the U.S. for eligible travelers visiting for 90 days or fewer for business or tourism. The program went into effect Nov. 1.

Over the past two years, Hawaiian has expanded more aggressively than any domestic carrier. Hawaiian will become the only airline offering nonstop service between Taiwan and Honolulu when it begins flying in July. It will be the ninth new route for Hawaiian since November 2010 when it began service to Haneda International Airport in Tokyo.
