Hawaiian Airlines said today it will start a new non-stop daily service between Maui and Los Angeles on July 1.
The airline will be using a wide-body, twin-aisle Airbus 330-200 with 294 passenger seats on the route.
"The island of Maui continues to grow as a popular visitor destination and also serves as an ideal transit point for neighbor island and U.S. Mainland travel," said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian Airlines executive vice president and chief commercial officer, in a news release. "We've seen tremendous demand from both Southern California travelers and our kamaaina, and we're very pleased to offer this new daily non-stop service for them."
The news release added, "Hawaiian Airlines' Maui hub, which was established in 2012, offers an alternative connecting point for travel to other islands with its expanded neighbor island flight schedule."
Hawaiian Airlines flight 34 will leave Maui at 3:40 p.m. daily and arrive at 11:55 p.m. at LAX. Flight 33 will leave LAX at 11:15 a.m. and arrive in Maui at 1:45 p.m.
