Hawaiian Airlines celebrates the launch of direct flights from Honolulu to Brisbane
Hawaiian Airlines celebrated the launch of scheduled fights between its Honolulu, HI (HNL) base and Brisbane (BNE), Australia. On 28 November, Hawaii's oldest airline connected the third-largest Australian city with Honolulu offering three weekly flights. Operated with B767-300ERs, the airline now offers 264 seats on each flight, allowing domestic connections and access to and from the US mainland. Notably, the route was sought after by Brisbane in The Route Shop and Hawaiian Airlines is now the sole carrier to serve it. This is the airline's second destination to Australia, along with a daily service to Sydney.
