Hawaiian Airlines drops Fukuoka service

Hawaiian Airlines is suspending daily service to Fukuoka, Japan, the second Asian city it has dropped within the last year following an aggressive international expansion.

The state’s largest carrier said Tuesday that the final flight from Honolulu to Fukuoka will be June 29 and the last flight from Fukuoka to Honolulu will be the following day.

“Unfortunately, despite two years of effort, we have not seen sufficient passenger growth to justify continuing the service,” Hawaiian President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Dunkerley said in a statement.

Hawaiian, which discontinued Manila service on Aug. 1, still serves four Japanese cities. It offers daily service from Tokyo and Osaka, and three-times-a-week service from Sendai and Sapporo.

The first flight to Fukuoka was on April 16, 2012.
