2 Airlines Expand Hawaii Service From West Coast

April 14, 2002|Jane Engle

Hawaiian and Aloha airlines are expanding service from Southern California to Hawaii after the collapse last month of their proposed merger.

Hawaiian on June 7 will begin daily nonstop service to Honolulu from Ontario and (and also Sacramento) using 767-300 ER aircraft that can carry 252 passengers. In February it announced plans to resume daily nonstop LAX-Maui flights on June 15 (flights were suspended after Sept. 11) and add a fourth daily flight between LAX and Honolulu for the summer.

Aloha on June 1 will begin daily nonstop service between Burbank and Honolulu using new 737-700 aircraft with 124 seats. It already flies to Honolulu and Maui from Orange County's John Wayne Airport. Although known mainly for inter-island service, the carrier has been flying long-haul transpacific routes since February 2000.
