 Delta Airlines too announced plans for its own route from Honolulu to Fukuoka earlier this month. The new service will launch on 28th December and will operate on board 209 seater Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. Delta’s service will however only operate during the Winter season. The operational days per week varies.

DL599 HNL 1030 – 1705+1 FUK 763
DL598 FUK 2030 – 0905+1 HNL 763

“Demand for our services in Japan from Tokyo and Osaka has been extremely strong, and we are responding to similar demand for Hawaii from the travel community in Fukuoka,” Hawaiian CEO Mark Dunkerley said.

 Hawaiian already serves Tokyo and Osaka from Honolulu, with both services operating daily.
