Hawaiian Airlines will expand its U.S. West Coast presence with the arrival of an A321neo fleet by adding three new non-stop daily routes early next year: Portland-Maui; Oakland-Kauai; and Los Angeles-Kona.
The routes will offer guests more options for direct access to Hawaiian's neighbor islands while enjoying the company's single-aisle A321neo aircraft.
"The introduction of A321neo service to the Western U.S. heralds the dawn of a new era for Hawaiian Airlines and its guests," said Peter Ingram, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Hawaiian Airlines, in a written release. “The A321neo offers an unrivaled combination of comfort and efficiency, allowing our guests to choose from three cabin experiences to customize their journey. We look forward to announcing additional routes in the months and years ahead."
The new A321neo service between Portland (PDX) and Maui (OGG) will launch on January 18. Hawaiian's seasonal wide body service currently offered between Oakland (OAK) and Kauai (LIH) through September 4 will resume April 11 as a daily A321neo flight.
Daily service between Los Angeles (LAX) and Kona (KOA) on the Island of Hawaii launches March 11 with wide body aircraft before the A321neo is introduced in the summer of 2018.
Hawaiian's inaugural A321neo flight between the U.S. West Coast and Hawaii is planned for Jan. 8 on its existing OAK-OGG service. Additional routes will be announced as Hawaiian welcomes 18 new A321neo aircraft between the fourth quarter of 2017 and 2020.
