Hawaii is about to get a lot more accessible for Floridians with Hawaiian Airlines launching nonstop service from Orlando International next spring.
The new service from Orlando to Honolulu will begin on March 11, 2021, with two weekly flights aboard a 278-seat Airbus A330 aircraft, USA Today reports. The route will be Hawaiian’s third-longest flight after Boston and New York.
“We are thrilled to announce that Central Florida residents can look forward to nonstop service to Hawaii, and that Orlando International Airport is officially Florida’s connection to the Aloha State,” said Phil Brown, CEO of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority in a statement reported by USA Today. “This new service represents a significant investment that will strengthen economic, leisure and cultural bonds between two of the country’s top tourism destinations.”
Hawaiian will also unveil a new nonstop flight from Austin, Texas to Honolulu beginning April 21 with twice-weekly flights from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
“We are delighted to bring our superior value proposition to travelers visiting Hawai‘i from Austin, Ontario and Orlando, while adding service to Maui from Long Beach,” said Peter Ingram, president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines. “2021 is going to be a special time to experience Hawai‘i, and we can’t wait to welcome onboard guests from our newest cities.”
According to a statement from Hawaiian Airlines, “All guests will enjoy island-inspired complimentary meals and the roominess and superior comfort of Hawaiian’s 278-seat Airbus A330 aircraft, which feature 18 First Class lie-flat leather seats arranged in a 2-2-2 configuration tailored for couples, families and honeymooners, as well as business travelers. Hawaiian’s A330s are also equipped with 68 of its popular Extra Comfort premium economy seats providing more legroom and enhanced amenities, in addition to 192 Main Cabin seats.”
