Hawaiian Airlines will expand its network in spring 2018, launching new routes using Airbus A321neos while adding flights to destinations already on the route map.
The network additions, disclosed by the company on 4 December, build on Hawaiian's previously-announced plans for the Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-powered A321neo fleet.
On 1 May 2018, Honolulu-based Hawaiian will begin daily year-round A321neo flights between Maui and San Diego, a route the carrier last served in 2010 using Boeing 767-300s, according to Hawaiian and FlightGlobal Diio data.
Then on 26 May 2018, Hawaiian will begin seasonal daily A321neo flights between Kona and Oakland, returning to a route Hawaiian served using A330-200s until September 2016, data shows.
Hawaiian will operate Kona-Oakland flights until 2 September 2018, it says.
Between 26 May 2018 and 31 July 2018, Hawaiian will operate a second daily flight using an A321neo between Honolulu and San Francisco, supplementing an existing A330-200, Hawaiian says.
From 1 June 2018 to 31 August 2018, Hawaiian will add a second daily A330-200 flight between Maui and Los Angeles.
It will likewise add a second A330-200 daily between Honolulu and Tokyo Narita airport between 1 August 2018 and 30 September 2018, Hawaiian says.
Hawaiian faces competition on all the routes.
Alaska Airlines flies the Maui-San Diego and Kona-Oakland routes, while Alaska and United Airlines operate the Honolulu-San Francisco routes.
Alaska, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United fly between Maui and Los Angeles, while All Nippon Airways, Delta, Japan Airlines, Korean Air and United operate between Honolulu and Tokyo, according to Diio data.
