Hawaiian Airlines will add Boston to its route map, launching nonstop service to Honolulu in a route the carrier says will become the USA’s longest regularly scheduled domestic route in history.
The Honolulu (HNL) flights launch April 4, which Hawaiian spins as “timed to offer winter-weary New Englanders a vacation” to Hawaii’s tropical climate. The carrier will offer five flights a week on Airbus A330 widebody jets that include lie-flat seats in business class.
“Honolulu will be (Boston) Logan’s 76th nonstop domestic destination, and with New Englanders coming off a long winter this flight’s start date is worth the wait,” Thomas Glynn, CEO of the Massport agency that operates Boston’s Logan International Airport, says in a statement.
Boston had been the largest U.S. market without a nonstop link to Hawaii, according to Hawaiian.
