Hawaiian Airlines will add an extra flight to its Brisbane-Honolulu service next year, taking the route to four flights per week.
The move comes just one year after the airline began flying into Brisbane, and it's not stopping there.
"The schedule expansion is part of our ongoing plans to grow our Oceania market" said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer, "allowing more Aussie travellers to visit the Hawaiian Islands via Honolulu and connect to any of our 11 US destination gateways."
As a partner to Virgin Australia’s Velocity Frequent Flyer program, travellers will continue to earn points and status credits on eligible Hawaiian Airlines fares to Honolulu and beyond.
The extra flight will debut on March 31 2014, which will see Brisbane departures on every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday; flights from Honolulu will leave on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
However, from April 14 2014, Hawaiian Airlines will rejig the schedule to see Brisbane departures on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. The return legs from Honolulu will shift accordingly to Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
The flight timings will remain unchanged: HA444 leaves Brisbane at 6:35pm and arrives into Honolulu at 7:45am on the same calendar day, while HA443 is wheels-up from Honolulu at 9:50am to reach Brisbane at 4pm.
The airline will continue to operate a Boeing 767-300ER on the route, providing 18 business class seats and 246 in economy.
