Hawaiian Airlines is shifting its Seattle flights to larger Airbus A330-200 aircraft from 8 December.

The Honolulu-based carrier will replace 264-seat Boeing 767-300ERs with the 294-seat A330s on its one daily flight between Honolulu and Seattle, and one daily flight between Kahului (Maui) and Seattle, it says.

“The demand for travel to both Honolulu and Maui has been robust, and we are pleased to be showing our commitment to the routes by adding additional capacity and newer aircraft with more comfortable seating and enhanced amenities,” says Mark Dunkerley, president and chief executive of Hawaiian, in a statement.

Alaska Airlines and Delta Air Lines also fly between Honolulu and Seattle, and Alaska flies between Kahului and Seattle, Innovata schedules show.
