AUSTIN, Texas – Hawaiian Airlines has announced new nonstop service between Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) beginning in April 22, 2021.
“We are delighted to bring our superior value proposition to travelers visiting Hawai‘i from Austin,” 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 our Austin guests and introduce them to our islands.”
Flights will operate twice a week with the HNL to AUS flight arriving Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:10 p.m. and departing Austin at 10:10 a.m. the following morning. The flight arrives in Honolulu at 1:30 p.m., giving travelers the afternoon to explore O‘ahu or connect to Hawaiian’s neighbor island destinations. Tickets are on sale now, with booking and more information available at HawaiianAirlines.com.
Guests will enjoy island-inspired complimentary meals and the roominess and superior comfort aboard Hawaiian’s 278-seat Airbus A330 aircraft. It features 18 lie-flat First Class leather seats arranged in a 2-2-2 configuration tailored for couples, families and honeymooners, as well as business travelers. Hawaiian’s A330s are equipped with 68 of its popular Extra Comfort premium economy seats with more legroom and enhanced amenities, in addition to 192 Main Cabin seats.
“We are excited to have met this long-held goal of connecting Austinites to beautiful Hawaii, for both business and pleasure,” said Gina Fiandaca, Assistant City Manager over the SD23 Mobility Outcome. “This significant milestone helps us advance our goal of achieving our Strategic Direction 2023 outcomes that will benefit Austin residents and support our economy for years to come.”
This new route will be the first nonstop air service to Hawaii for Central Texas travelers and the first Pacific route from AUS. This is Hawaiian Airlines’ first connection into Texas.
“Austin-Bergstrom International Airport remains committed to providing the best service to our passengers despite a year with unprecedented impacts on the airline and airport industries,” said Jacqueline Yaft, Chief Executive Officer. “We know that many Central Texans will be eager to travel and we are excited to offer an easy and convenient way to explore a new destination.”
