than 22,000 seats to both island travel markets over 12 weeks of service, and
complements the new Oakland service that will also start next summer with
direct flights to Lihu'e and Kona for 10 weeks.

vacation and experience Hawai'i's Big Island and Garden Isle," said Peter
Ingram, Hawaiian Airlines executive vice president and chief commercial
officer. "We are pleased to be supporting both Kaua'i and Big Island's visitor
industries with this new summer service and offering island residents direct
access to Los Angeles."
