Jetstar will start flying from Brisbane to Hawaii later this year.
Commencing on 15 December 2014, the low-cost carrier will initially operate two weekly flights on the route between Brisbane and Honolulu, using its Airbus A330 aircraft. But this will be upgraded to three flights per week during the peak season, and Jetstar’s brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner will be deployed on the route once more of the fuel-efficient aircraft are delivered.
“With the addition of this new connection from Brisbane, Jetstar offers more seats from Brisbane and Queensland than any other low fares carrier,” said Jetstar’s CEO for Australia & New Zealand, David Hall.
“Jetstar has been offering long-haul low fares between Sydney and Hawaii since 2006 and last year we introduced nonstop services to Honolulu from Melbourne. Hawaii is one of the most popular destinations on our network and we’re delighted to be giving more Aussies the chance to experience this part of the world.”
Flights will initially depart twice a week, leaving Brisbane on Tuesdays and Fridays and returning from Honolulu on Mondays and Thursdays. The third service will operate every Sunday during the peak season.
