Hawaiian Airlines is starting to sell tickets for its first-ever direct flight to China.

The airline plans to launch nonstop service from Honolulu to Beijing on April 16. It will operate the flight three times a week.

Hawaiian said Tuesday it will fly Airbus A330 airplanes on the route. The airplane seats nearly 300 passengers.

The Hawaii Tourism Authority previously estimated the new service will generate $81 million in annual visitor spending and more than $8 million in tax revenue for Hawaii.

Air China plans to the first airline to fly nonstop between Beijing and Hawaii when it launches direct service from the Chinese capital to Honolulu in January.
