More than 120,000 air seats will be added to both Los Angeles and Maui's travel markets when the new non-stop service launches on July 1, 2014. The new daily service also capitalizes on convenient connections to Hawai'i from other cities on the U.S. mainland through Hawaiian Airlines' growing network with airline partners. In addition, Hawaiian Airlines' Maui hub, which was established in 2012, offers an alternative connecting point for travel to other islands with its expanded neighbor island flight schedule.
"The island of Maui continues to grow as a popular visitor destination and also serves as an ideal transit point for neighbor island and U.S. Mainland travel," said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian Airlines executive vice president and chief commercial officer. "We've seen tremendous demand from both Southern California travelers and our kama'aina (residents), and we're very pleased to offer this new daily non-stop service for them."
The new daily service will be operated by Hawaiian Airlines' wide-body, twin-aisle Airbus 330-200 aircraft, which seats 294 passengers with 18 in First Class and 276 in the Main Cabin. Hawaiian Airlines' A330 amenities include personal on-demand entertainment system for each seat, increased legroom, and roomy interior. Adding to the enjoyment of the Maui travel experience on Hawaiian Airlines is the carrier's signature onboard hospitality program, Mea Ho'okipa (translation: I am host). Travelers will enjoy island-style complimentary meals and made-in-Hawai'i snacks to go along with Hawaiian Airlines' engaging presentation of the islands' culture, people and Aloha Spirit throughout the flight.
