Hawaiian Airlines to Expand Service to Japan From Honolulu

Hawaiian Airlines recently announced plans to begin daily nonstop service between Narita International Airport (NRT) and Honolulu International Airport (HNL) starting July 22, 2016. Hawaiian's new Narita route will complement its existing daily service to Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND), providing two daily flight options to travelers in the Greater Tokyo region.

"We've had the pleasure of carrying more than 800,000 visitors between Haneda and Honolulu since the launch of our daily A330 service more than five years ago," said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airline's president and CEO, in a written release. "With average load factors routinely exceeding 90 percent, it is clear Japanese travelers have chosen Hawaiian as their carrier of choice when visiting our beautiful islands."

Starting July 22, 2016, Hawaiian's flight HA 821 will depart Honolulu daily at 3:30 p.m., cross the international dateline, and arrive at Narita International Airport at 7 p.m. the following day. Beginning July 23, the return flight HA 822 will depart from Narita at 9 p.m., cross the international dateline, and arrive at Honolulu International Airport at 9:55 a.m. the same day.

"Japan is Hawaii's largest international market with arrivals from the market making up 18 percent of total arrivals to the state in 2014," said George D. Szigeti, president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority, in a written release. "Hawaiian Airlines' daily flight from Narita to Honolulu is projected to contribute an annual $130 million in visitor spending and $14.7 million in state tax revenue. With the recent announcement that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is looking to expand pre-clearance operations at Narita, this flight will provide additional service from one of our core markets."
