Hawaiian Airlines announced Thursday that it will increase service from the Bay Area to Honolulu later this spring.

On May 16, Hawaiian will reinstate its daily San Jose to Honolulu service. The route will be operated on the 264-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.

"We are excited to bring back our daily non-stop service between San Jose and Honolulu, giving our Northern California travelers more access to the Hawaiian Islands," said Hawaiian Airlines President and CEO Mark Dunkerley.

The flight departs San Jose at 10:10 a.m. and arrives at 12:35 p.m. The return flight departs at 2:20 p.m. and arrives at 10:30 p.m. The service from San Jose begins on May 17.

On June 18, Hawaiian also plans to increase capacity on its current Oakland to Honolulu service by switching to the 294-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft. The change adds a total of 60 more seats each day.

"The demand for travel from the Bay Area has been strong, so additionally, we are pleased to offer more capacity and all of the enhanced amenities that our A330 aircraft has to offer for our Oakland travelers," said Dunkerley.

Amenities on the A330 are highlighted by the personal on-demand entertainment system at each seat, increased legroom and a roomy interior. The state-of-the-art entertainment system allows customers to choose from a wide range of movies, TV programs, music, and video games. Passengers will also have access to a USB port for the use of their own personal media players.

The flight departs Oakland at 10 a.m. and arrives in Honolulu at 12:20 p.m. The return flight departs at 2:10 p.m. and arrives at 10:25 p.m. The switch on the Oakland leg starts June 19.
