Hawaiian Airlines is expanding its New Zealand service with up to five nonstop flights weekly between Auckland and Honolulu starting in March.
The state’s largest carrier had been flying three times a week since beginning service between the two cities in 2013. It has transported more than 260,000 passengers on the route since that time.
“Our growth in New Zealand underpins our decision to offer Kiwis unmatched value on their Hawaii vacation,” Russell Williss, Hawaiian Airlines country director for New Zealand, said today.
Under the expanded schedule that starts March 21, flights will depart Auckland at 11:55 p.m. five times weekly, Wednesday through Sunday, arriving in Honolulu at 9:45 a.m. on the same day. Flights from Honolulu to Auckland will depart at 2:05 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, arriving at 10 p.m. the following day.
Hawaiian’s Airbus A330 aircraft offers three seating options on the flight, including lie-flat seating in business class, as well as extra comfort premium economy and the main cabin.
