ATA Expands Service From Hawaii and Texas

Starting in April 2006, ATA plans to both expand and change its scheduled service from Hawaii. The airline will add flights between Hawaii and both Oakland International and Ontario International (just east of Los Angeles) in California. At that point, it will cease its Hawaii flights from San Francisco International. Starting April 27, the carrier will begin flying one daily roundtrip between Hilo on the Big Island and Oakland. At the same time, ATA will be launching two daily roundtrips to Honolulu and one daily roundtrip to Maui from Oakland. These additions will double Oakland's available scheduled service to Hawaii. On April 28, ATA also will introduce the only daily nonstop, roundtrip service between Honolulu and Ontario International Airport. On May 25, ATA will introduce one additional nonstop flight between Honolulu and LAX. ATA also plans to add two new daily roundtrips between Houston-Hobby and New York-LaGuardia on April 2. At the same time, ATA will add a fourth roundtrip between DFW and Chicago-Midway. ATA is also launching a 24/7 "Hawaii Travel Marathon." Every hour Jan. 23-31, Travel Awards Members will be eligible to receive a free roundtrip ticket for travel from Phoenix; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; San Francisco; Oakland, CA; or Ontario, CA, to any Hawaii destination served by ATA from Feb. 15 to May 31. Winners will be randomly selected and notified via e-mail. Fares start at $149 (each way) between Hawaii and the mainland, and $89 between Houston and New York-LaGuardia. Visit [].
