Hawaiian Airlines is planning to resume its nonstop flights between Honolulu (HNL) and Auckland (AKL) after two years of pandemic-related travel restrictions. The flights between Hawaii and New Zealand will resume three times a week beginning on July 2.
“Our July return comes at just the right time as Kiwis looking to get away this winter can now take a much-needed tropical escape to the Hawaiian Islands or visit the continental United States. We look forward to welcoming them back with our authentic Hawaiian hospitality and unparalleled onboard service,” said Andrew Stanbury, regional director for Australia and New Zealand at Hawaiian Airlines. “The resumption of our New Zealand service, along with the restart of our Sydney service in December, completes the reopening of our Oceania market – an integral piece of our company’s post-pandemic recovery.”
Flight HA445 will depart Honolulu Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2:25 p.m. and arriving in Auckland at 9:45 p.m. the next day. Beginning July 4, HA446 will depart Auckland on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 11:55 p.m. with a 10:50 a.m. same-day arrival at Honolulu. The flights also allow New Zealand travelers to regain access to Hawaiian’s U.S. domestic network of 16 gateways.
Hawaiian Airlines launched their Honolulu to Auckland service in 2013, aboard the 278-seat Airbus A330.
