Good news for jet-setters planning to hop over to Australia or New Zealand after a Hawaiian vacation. Honolulu, Hawaii-based Hawaiian Airlines today (Feb. 25, 2013) announced the addition of 31 seasonal flights to its established schedules in September and October of this year between Honolulu and its three Oceania gateways of Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland, New Zealand with free stopovers in Hawaii. The new schedule, which launches on March 13, 2013, will add approximately 8,800 new air seats on the three routes during a peak travel period for Australian and Kiwi travelers.
Peter Ingram, Hawaiian’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer, said, “Demand for our services in Australia and New Zealand is particularly strong during this period when schools are out and families are on holiday. These extra flights also offer travelers in Hawai‘i and North America more options for visiting Australia and New Zealand at a beautiful time of year.”
Hawaiian is increasing its Sydney-Honolulu service from daily to 10 flights per week from September 11 to October 19, 2013, adding 17 extra flights and increasing from three to five flights per week between Brisbane and Honolulu, from September 13 to October 14, adding 10 extra flights to the schedule.
For service connecting Auckland and Honolulu, Hawaiian is increasing from three to four flights per week from September 19 to October 11, adding four extra flights to the schedule. Travelers flying on Hawaiian between North America and any of its international destinations can take advantage of free stopovers in Hawai‘i, giving them added flexibility in planning trips.
