Hawaiian Airlines will operate 18 extra Honolulu-Brisbane flights between March and May next year, in addition to its new scheduled services on the route, which gets underway next month.
The airline will commence its new Honolulu-Brisbane service from 28 November, departing every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Of the 18 additional flights, nine will operate in March, five in April and four in May. Most of the extra flights will operate on Mondays, which Hawaiian said would provide opportunities for “newlyweds, who can jet off to Hawaii for their honeymoons after weekend weddings in Australia”.
“Our decision to commence flights from Brisbane is in response to strong demand for additional flights from Australia, in particular from the Queensland market,” said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian’s chief commercial officer. “With additional aircraft capacity now becoming available between March and May, we have the added opportunity not only to increase the number of seats on the Brisbane route during this period, but also to explore some different schedule options for the future,” he added.
The introduction of scheduled flights from Brisbane will take to 10 the number of Hawaiian Airlines departures from Australia each week, with daily services from Sydney and three weekly flights from Brisbane. This is double the number of departures offered at the same time last year, when Hawaiian operated five flights per week from Sydney.
