Hawaiian Airlines Overview:

 

Hawaiian Airlines began in 1929 as Inter-Island Airways. The first flights were from Honolulu to Maui and the Big Island. The company changed its name to Hawaiian Airlines in 1941. When commercial flights became available in the 1960s, Hawaiian expanded its fleet and travel time between the islands was reduced to just half an hour. Over the next 20 years, Hawaiian began offering flights between the islands, the mainland, and the South Pacific. It maintains a strong presence in the Western U.S., Asia, and the South Pacific today, and is the state of Hawaii’s biggest airline.

 

Hawaiian Airlines’ fleet consists of 13 Boeing 717-200s, 14 Boeing 767-300ERs, and one long-range Airbus A330-200. It has plans to add 27 more A330-200s to its fleet by the end of the decade.

 

Within Hawaii, Hawaiian operates flights between Honolulu, Hilo, Kona, Lihue, Kahului, and Kapalua. It also operates flights in the following U.S. cities: Las Vegas, NV; Los Angeles, CA; New York, NY; Oakland, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Portland, OR; Sacramento, CA; San Diego, CA; San Francisco, CA; San Jose, CA; and Seattle, WA. In Asia and the South Pacific, Hawaiian operates flights in Auckland, New Zealand; Brisbane, Australia; Fukuoka, Japan; Manila, Philippines; Osaka Kansai, Japan; Pago Pago, Samoa; Papeete, Tahiti; Sapporo Chitose, Japan; Seoul Incheon, South Korea; Sydney, Australia; and Tokyo Haneda, Japan. The majority of mainland U.S., South Pacific, and Asia flights depart from Honolulu, although some depart from Kona and Kahului as well.
