    Hawaiian Airlines boosts the number of flights between Honolulu and Sydney from four a week to daily on April 6.

    The carrier will run the daily schedule until August 1, the end of the northern hemisphere summer peak during which Australian travellers seek an escape to the warm climate of Hawaii.

    It marks the first time Hawaiian Airlines has operated daily from Australia.

    And from August 2, Hawaiian will fly five times a week rather than four - the increased flights adding 19,000 extra seats between the two cities this year.

    All flights are operated with two class Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, seating 264 passengers.

    “Ever since we launched nonstop flights from Sydney to Honolulu in May 2004, tourist travel from Australia to Hawaii has continued to grow,” said Sherilyn Robinson, GM sales and marketing for Hawaiian Airlines in Australia.

    “Now with our increased flights from Sydney, we will have the ability to carry substantially more passengers during the peak travel season,” Robinson said.

    As well as flying to Honolulu, Hawaiian offers onward service to the neighbouring islands of Maui, Kauai and The Big Island of Hawaii, and connections to 10 US mainland cities – Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, San Jose, Oakland, San Diego and Phoenix.

    “Hawaii is an exciting destination in its own right for leisure travel – and is just an overnight flight from Australia,” said Robinson.

    “But for leisure or business travellers to the US mainland, Hawaii is also just the place for a relaxing stopover on the way home to Australia, offering a vast range of activities, shopping options and great opportunities to simply stop and relax,” she said.

    “The continuing strength of the Australian dollar and competitive pricing throughout Hawaii make a visit to the islands of Aloha even more attractive.”

    Hawaiian Airlines flight HA452 departs Sydney at 9.20pm, crossing the international dateline and arriving in Honolulu at 11.00am the same day.

    The return service, HA 451, leaves Honolulu at 12.40pm, arriving in Sydney at 7.20pm the following day.

    As well as flying between Sydney and Honolulu, Hawaiian has fares from 18 other Australian destinations, through a strong commercial partnership with domestic carrier Virgin Blue, and is a partner in Virgin’s popular loyalty program, Velocity, enabling members to earn and redeem reward points on Hawaiian Airlines flights.

    Included for all passengers on Hawaiian’s flights from Australia are meals, drinks and refreshments - but no personal seatback entertainment system.

    Hawaiian also provides for all of its passengers from Australia one of the most generous checked luggage allowances in the airline industry, with each passenger allowed two free checked bags, each weighing up to 32 kilograms.
