Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. : Hawaiian Airlines to Expand Service Between Oakland
and Hawaiian Islands
HONOLULU-(Thursday, August 1, 2013) - Hawaiian Airlines is answering growing
demand and giving San Francisco Bay Area travelers more options, more
flexibility and more of a reason to visit the Hawaiian Islands with an
expanded schedule and new direct flights into two other islands.
Beginning January 5, 2014, Hawaiian Airlines will offer daily service between
Oakland and Honolulu, increasing its flights from four times a week, boosting
total air seats to O'ahu by 75 percent. Daily service between Oakland and
Kahului, Maui will continue as scheduled. In addition, Hawaiian Airlines will
start new annual summer service between Oakland and Lihu'e, Kaua'i three times
a week, and Oakland and Kona, Hawai'i Island four times a week starting in
2014 from June 14 to August 15, adding a total of 18,200 seats to both island
travel markets over 10 weeks of service.
"We want to give travelers in the greater Bay Area even more reason to start
dreaming about getting away to our beautiful islands and all there is to
enjoy," said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian Airlines executive vice president and
chief commercial officer. "We are also pleased to support Kaua'i and Hawai'i
Island's visitor industries during peak summer season starting next year and
also offer our island residents convenient, direct service to the Bay Area."
The new expanded schedule and service allows Bay Area travelers the option of
a dual-destination vacation with a free stopover in O'ahu before continuing on
to Hawaiian Airlines' South Pacific gateways, such as Sydney, Brisbane and
Auckland. South Pacific travelers can also connect in Honolulu to enjoy a few
nights in the islands before heading to the San Francisco Bay Area through
Oakland, the convenient, centrally located gateway to everything the Bay Area
has to offer, such as Napa Valley's finest restaurants and wineries.
Daily O'ahu and Maui Schedule
Daily service between Oakland and Honolulu will commence on January 5, 2014.
Additional flights on the route may also be available in early December 2013
based on aircraft availability. Maui's daily service between Oakland and
Kahului will continue with slightly adjusted times below beginning in January.
