Hawaiian Airlines is adding 31 seasonal flights in September and October between Honolulu and its three Oceania destinations — Sydney and Brisbane in Australia; and Auckland, New Zealand, which launches on March 13.
The new flights will add about 8,800 new air seats on the three routes during a peak travel period for Australian and Kiwi travelers.
“Demand for our services in Australia and New Zealand is particularly strong during this period when schools are out and families are on holiday,” Hawaiian Chief Commercial Officer Peter Ingram said today.
Hawaiian is increasing its Sydney-Honolulu service from daily to 10 flights per week from Sept. 11 to Oct. 19, adding 17 extra flights.
Between Brisbane and Honolulu, Hawaiian is increasing from three to five flights per week from Sept. 13 to Oct. 14, adding 10 extra flights.
For its service connecting Auckland and Honolulu, Hawaiian is increasing from three to four flights per week from Sept. 19 to Oct. 11, adding four extra flights.
