As of 1st June 2018, Hawaiian Airlines will introduce a daily non-stop service between Long Beach, California and Honolulu, Hawaii. Serviced by the airline’s new Airbus A321neo aircraft, the route represents a step up in convenience for Southern Californian travellers who want to enjoy and explore one of the most sought-after tropical destinations in the world.
“Long Beach is a perfect getaway for travellers in Los Angeles and Orange County to ease into their Hawaiian vacation”, offered Hawaiian’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer Peter Ingram. “We looked forward to welcoming our guests onboard, where they will enjoy our award-winning Hawaiian hospitality in the comfort of our newest aircraft”.
The new route will be inaugurated on May 31st, following which it will depart Long Beach daily at 8:30am with an arrival time in Honolulu of 11:40am. This early arrival will give passengers the afternoon to explore O’ahu or connect to a neighbour island. The return flight HA70, will depart Honolulu at 12:30pm and arrive in Long Beach at 9pm.
Hawaiian’s fuel-efficient mid-range A321neo aircraft have been designed to complement the carrier’s fleet of wide-body aircraft currently used for service between Hawaii and eleven U.S gateway cities, along with 10 international destinations. The single aisle Airbus has enough space for 189 passengers; broken down into 16 luxurious leather recliners in First Class, 44 ‘Extra Comfort” premium economy seats, and 129 economy seats. The flight features complimentary meals, wireless streaming in-flight entertainment, USB outlets, and additional overhead stowage space.
