Honolulu-based Hawaiian Airlines has just announced it will be adding five more flights to the 50th state, boosting its service from the San Francisco Bay Area by a whopping 70 percent.
Where to Find New Hawaiian Flights
The flights to Maui, the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands, will depart from the following California cities in the summer months only:
- July 1 – Aug. 21: Daily flights to-and-from Maui and Oakland
- July 4 – Aug. 19: Sun., Tues., Wed., Fri., Sat. flights to-and-from Maui and San Jose
Is Cheaper Hawaiian Airfare Possible?
Hawaiian Airlines already has an extensive number of flights from the West Coast to Honolulu, but this is part of its ongoing effort to beef up its Maui hub. The airline also believes passenger demand is up to the challenge of new flights, describing it as “robust.”
However, airfare analyst Rick Seaney said the increased number of flights may benefit passengers looking for reduced rates, adding, “I suspect this means airfares to Maui could drop, absolutely.”
Another Passenger Perk
According to a news report, passengers will reap another benefit – a less hectic travel experience at the airport. Said spokesperson Ann Botticelli, “It allows us to route passengers through Maui to other destinations throughout the Islands without going through Honolulu International, which is more crowded.”
