Hawaiian Airlines is bringing Hawai‘i closer to three more U.S. mainland cities: Austin, Texas; Ontario, California; and Orlando, Florida. Travelers will be able to enjoy the carrier’s award-winning hospitality onboard nonstop flights to Honolulu. Hawai‘i’s hometown airline will also expand service in Long Beach, California, adding daily nonstop flights to Kahului, Maui.
On April 21, Austin will become the first south-central and 16th U.S. city in Hawaiian Airlines’ network, with two weekly Airbus A330 flights linking Hawai‘i with the capital of Texas and the “Live Music Capital of the World.” Hawai‘i is a popular destination among travelers from the Central Texas region, and in particular from Austin — ranked the fastest-growing U.S. metro area in 2019.
In California, Hawaiian will connect Honolulu and Ontario International Airport (ONT) with five weekly nonstop flights beginning March 16. The airline will serve the route with Airbus A321neos, a quiet and fuel-efficient aircraft with 16 luxurious leather recliners in First Class, 44 Extra Comfort seats and 129 Main Cabin seats. Ontario will complement Hawaiian’s existing service at Los Angeles (LAX) and growing presence at Long Beach Airport (LGB).
Beginning March 11, Hawaiian will offer two weekly flights between Honolulu (HNL) and Orlando International Airport (MCO). Orlando — one of the largest U.S. travel markets to Hawai‘i currently without nonstop service and a popular destination for Hawai’i residents visiting its world-renowned Central Florida attractions — will join Boston (BOS) and New York (JFK) as Hawaiian’s third Eastern gateway city.
