Hawaiian Airlines said Wednesday it will begin offering nonstop service between San Francisco International Airport and Kahului Airport on Maui beginning Nov. 20.
The nonstop service between San Francisco and Maui will begin with flights four times a week on Hawaiian's 294-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft before moving to daily service starting Dec. 17. The daily service will add more than 210,000 seats to both the San Francisco and Maui travel markets. Flights will depart Maui at 2:55 p.m. and arrive in San Francisco at 9:55 p.m. Return flights from San Francisco will leave at 9:50 a.m. and arrive on Maui at 1:15 p.m.
"This year we've brought back our San Jose to Honolulu service, offered new seasonal nonstop flights from Oakland to Kona and Lihue, and now we are launching daily service between San Francisco and Maui -- all in response to the robust demand we've received from the Bay Area," said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian Airlines executive vice president and chief commercial officer.
