HONOLULU — Hawaiian Airlines is going to make it easier for Hawaii travelers to get to San Francisco.

The carrier announced Wednesday it will add a second daily flight to the Bay Area starting June 1.

The Honolulu-to-San Francisco flights will leave at 12:30 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. every day. On the return leg out of San Francisco International Airport, the new flight will depart at 10:15 the following morning. The current flight is at 8:40 a.m.

The new flight will use a McDonnell Douglas DC-10 with a seating capacity of 304 passengers.

In addition to interisland service, Hawaiian Air also serves Los Angeles; Las Vegas; Portland, Ore.; and Seattle from Honolulu and Los Angeles from Maui and the Big Island.

It flies from Honolulu to the South Pacific and has a West Coast-to-Tahiti charter business.

Hawaiian Air also announced that interisland travelers will be able to use a ticketless "overnighter" booking system. Travelers using Hawaiian HotTrips will be able to use credit cards through the airline's Web site.

The online booking service will help set up package deals with 189 hotel properties, three rental car companies and some visitor attractions.
