Hawaiian Airlines increases Brisbane-Honolulu flights over summer

by James Wilkinson

Hawaiian Airlines is set increase its non-stop service between Brisbane and Honolulu to up to four weekly flights from December 10, 2018 through to January 8, 2019.

The airline says the added frequency comes in response to high demand from Brisbane travellers wanting to enjoy a trip to Hawaii over the Christmas and New Year holiday break.

Under Hawaiian’s expanded summer schedule, flights will depart Brisbane at 10.30pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, arriving in Honolulu at 11.45am on the same day and offering guests ample time to settle into their accommodation, explore O‘ahu, or connect on a flight to a Neighbour Island or one of Hawaiian’s 12 gateway cities in North America.

Flights from Honolulu to Brisbane will depart at 2.30pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Friday and Sundays, arriving at 8.30pm the following day.

Hawaiian Airlines serves Mai Tais in Business Class

Hawaiian, the only carrier to offer non-stop service between Brisbane and Honolulu, launched a three-times weekly service between the two cities on 28 November 2012.

The airline’s Airbus A330 aircraft offer guests three inflight experiences, including Business Class with full-flat seating, Extra Comfort premium economy and a Main Cabin.

Guests on Hawaiian’s Australian flights also enjoy the airline’s award-winning Hawaiian hospitality and all fares include Hawaiian inspired meals and beverages, on demand inflight entertainment and a generous 64kg free checked baggage allowance (two bags at 32kg per piece).

For just AUD$165 per person per sector guests can also treat themselves to Hawaiian Airlines’ Extra Comfort Economy Seats and enjoy five or more extra inches of legroom, priority boarding, personal electronic power outlet and amenity kit.
