Hawaiian Airlines has shared the details of capacity increases for the Summer 2024 travel season.
While the airline isn’t adding any new destinations to its route map, it will offer additional frequencies on routes to key destinations within the carrier’s existing network, giving flyers more ways to get to and from the Hawaiian Islands.
Let’s take a look at what you can expect for the summer travel season with Hawaiian Airlines.
Hawaiian Airlines Adds Capacity on Key Routes This Summer
Hawaiian Airlines shared in a press release the details of an upcoming capacity bump on several key routes in its network, timed to coincide with the bump in travel demand that happens every summer.
Here’s a look at where and when Hawaiian is adding capacity from its Honolulu (HNL) hub:
- Austin (AUS): From May 24 through August 2, 2024, Hawaiian will add 1 additional weekly flight — to be operated on Fridays — bringing frequency up to 4 times weekly.
- Boston (BOS): From May 23 through August 1, 2024, Hawaiian will add 1 additional weekly flight — to be operated on Thursdays — bringing frequency up to 5 times weekly.
- Las Vegas (LAS): From May 24 through July 28, 2024, Hawaiian will operate HA5 and HA6 daily, meaning the airline will serve LAS nonstop from HNL 3 times daily during this period.
- Los Angeles (LAX): From May 24 through September 2, 2024, Hawaiian will add a fourth daily flight.
- Pago Pago, American Samoa (PPG): From May 22 through September 2, 2024, Hawaiian will add 1 additional weekly flight — to be operated on Wednesdays — bringing frequency up to 3 times weekly.
“Travelers will enjoy more options and convenient schedules as they plan their summer travel to and from the islands,” said Brent Overbeek, senior vice president and chief revenue officer at Hawaiian Airlines. “This is also the first year we will offer a fourth daily HNL-LAX flight, which reflects the strong demand for our brand in Southern California.”
The majority of these additional flights will be operated by Hawaiian’s Airbus A330, though travelers flying between Honolulu and Los Angeles can look forward to flying the carrier’s new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on select frequencies.
It goes without saying that Hawaii is a massively popular travel destination. Come this summer, travelers will have even more options for reaching the paradise of the Hawaiian Islands.
While the carrier works through the process of its ongoing merger with Alaska Airlines (which is still subject to regulatory approvals), it’s nice to see the carrier responding to increased demand by adding capacity on several of its key routes to the mainland United States and even further afield.
