Hawaiian Airlines is expanding its operations to create a Maui hub that will offer improved connections between Maui and neighboring Hawaiian islands, as well as flights to and from the West Coast.
Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian’s president and chief executive officer issued a written statement saying, “This investment in our core business here in Hawaii will increase service between Maui and other neighbor islands by 25%, and answer a need identified by our kama‘aina travelers. We appreciate the support of our state lawmakers, the Department of Transportation, and Maui County in helping us to move this project forward to the benefit of Hawaii’s air travelers.”
Hawaiian is increasing its daily neighbor island schedule by an additional 23 to 25 flights over the next several weeks with more than half of the added flights serving the new Maui hub and one third providing additional non-stop service between Maui and Kauai and the big island of Hawaii.
In addition, Hawaiian is reintroducing nonstop service to Maui from Los Angeles in June. With Hawaiian currently providing non-stop service to Maui from Seattle, Las Vegas, Oakland and San Jose there will now be a total of 5 US mainland gateway cities with direct service to Maui.
Three Maui legislators supported the new Maui hub. “Hawaiian’s expansion plan for Kahului Airport is good news for neighbor island residents and will make air travel between our islands easier while also increasing opportunities to showcase Maui as a visitor destination,” said State Senator J. Kalani English.
State Senator Rosalyn Baker commented that “It’s nice to see a local company growing, hiring and adding services in our community.”
“I support Hawaiian’s new concept of a Maui hub. It will help satisfy the air transportation needs of our growing population and increased visitor arrivals on Maui, plus it adds more of a focus on the neighbor islands and the importance of their role in our state’s economy,” said State Representative Joseph Souki.
As part of its expanded neighbor island schedule, on March 11 Hawaiian is introducing daily non-stop roundtrip flights between Maui and Kauai, and adding flights between Maui and Kona and Hilo on Hawaii Island, thus offering new options for neighbor island commuters and to eliminate stopovers in Honolulu.
