Hawaiian Airlines commences non-stop flights between Honolulu and Boston

April 5, 2019 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Hawaiian Airlines will begin its five-day-a-week service between Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye
International Airport (HNL) and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) on April 4, 2019, establishing its second East Coast gateway for Australian travelers visiting the United States Mainland.“At 8199.6km, Hawaiian’s non-stop BOS-HNL route will become the longest regularly scheduled
domestic interstate route in U.S. history, “ said Andrew Stanbury, Hawaiian Airlines Regional Director Australia and New Zealand.

“Many of Hawaiian’s Australian guests travelling with us via Hawaii to the U.S. mainland choose to
combine a mainland holiday with a Hawai‘i stopover on the way home to unwind for a few days; or
simply to take advantage of Hawaii’s famous shopping outlets,” he added.

Hawaiian Airlines’ new Boston flight will be given the HA90 flight number, in commemoration of
Hawaiian Airlines’ 90th year of operation that started on November 11, 2018.

Starting April 4, HA90 will depart HNL every day (except Tuesdays and Wednesdays) at 1:55pm and arrive at BOS the following morning at 6 a.m.

HA89 will make its inaugural flight from BOS on April 5 and depart daily (except Wednesdays and
Thursdays) at 8:55am. However, Friday flights will depart at 8am. The flights will arrive in Hawai’i the same day at 2:35pm and the Friday flight will arrive at 1:40pm.

Hawaiian’s non-stop services from Sydney Airport (SYD) and Brisbane Airport (BNE) to HNL allows for guests to travel comfortably with same-day connections:
▪ HA452 (SYD-HNL) arriving at 10.30am and HA90 (HNL-BOS) departing between 1:55 and 3:15pm,depending on date of travel;
▪ HA444 (BNE-HNL) arriving at 11:00am and HA90 (HNL-BOS) departing between 1:55 and 3:15pm,depending on date of travel.

However, schedules for the return southbound leg require an overnight stay in Honolulu due to the
afternoon arrival into HNL.

The new route will be operated by the 278-seat Airbus A330 widebody aircraft, a plane familiar to
Australians who have flown with Hawaiian before and are used to the carrier’s roominess, superior
comfort and award-winning Hawaiian hospitality.

Hawaiian’s Business Class (referred to as First Class on US domestic flights) cabin features 18 lie-flat leather seats that transform into 180-degree beds at a roomy 20.5 inches wide and 76 inches long.

Aligned in a 2-2-2 configuration, the seats are ideally tailored to leisure guests such as couples, families and honeymooners, while offering functionality to the business traveler.

Each aircraft also features 68 Extra Comfort main cabin seats, which offer a generous 36-inch pitch for extra leg room and priority boarding.

Australians travelling to Boston from Australia on a continuous international travel itinerary enjoy
Hawaiian’s industry leading international checked baggage allowance of 64kg (2 x 32kg).

Boston is the largest U.S. market that previously did not have a nonstop service to Hawai’i with nearly 500 people flying between New England and the Hawaiian Islands on any given day. In 2018, travel between BOS and HNL generated approximately $76 million in ticket sales.

Massachusetts Governor, Charlie Baker, said: “The Commonwealth is excited to welcome Hawaiian
Airlines to Logan Airport, providing a new connection between our states. This route will provide
travelers from Hawaii direct access to all that the Commonwealth has to offer, including our nationleading innovation economy, while also making travel for New England residents to Hawaii easier.”

David O’Donnell, Senior Manager of Media Relations at Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau, said: “The Boston visitor industry is thrilled to welcome nonstop flights between Boston and Honolulu with Hawaiian Airlines.”

“We are excited to welcome visitors from Hawaii to the Commonwealth and afford them access to all of New England – a region rich in cultural, commercial, recreational and historical assets. We also see this new route as an important feeder for visitors coming from Asia and Oceania to Boston. In all, this nonstop route will be a tremendous boost to our visitor economy,” Mr O’Donnell said.
