REPORT FROM HAWAIIAN AIRLINES – Hawaiian Airlines today announced great news for Bay Area residents who love Maui: Hawaiian is doubling its nonstop flights to 14 per week year-round between the Bay Area and Maui.
Effective October 3, Hawaiian will fly daily to Maui from both Oakland and San José. Except for a six-week seasonal summer increase in service, Hawaiian has been offering four flights per week between Oakland and Maui, and three flights per week between San José and Maui since January 2012. By expanding to daily service on both routes, Hawaiian is adding nearly 90,000 new air seats annually to Maui.
The increase in service to Maui is the result of Hawaiian’s realignment of Bay Area flight schedules to better match capacity with consumer demand.
Peter Ingram, Hawaiian’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer, said, “We’ve seen tremendous demand for service to Maui from our customers in Oakland and San José, so we’re adjusting our schedules to better match their needs.”
Concurrent with the increase in service to Maui, Hawaiian’s daily service to Honolulu from Oakland will go to four days per week, and service to Honolulu from San José will go to three days per week.
Hawaiian will continue to offer daily service between San Francisco and Honolulu.
