Responding to increasing demand for its service to Hawaii from Sydney in Australia, Hawaiian Airlines will increase the frequency of its service between Sydney and Honolulu from five flights a week to year-round, daily flights on December 14.

“Australians are increasingly finding great value in Hawaii vacations, and demand for our services has never been greater,” says Glenn Taniguchi, Hawaiian Airlines’ senior vice president of marketing and sales. “The arrival of another aircraft later this year will allow us to meet the increased demand starting in December.”


In April, Hawaiian Airlines increased its Sydney flight schedule from four days a week to daily for the peak winter season. Because of aircraft availability, the carrier will operate the service on five days each week between August 3 and December 13, before starting year-round daily service on December 14.
