- Hawaiian Airlines resumed flights between Kahului (OGG) and Portland (PDX) on 18 January, a route it has not flown since 2012. The carrier will offer a daily service between the two airports on its A321s, with flights leaving the Hawaiian airport at 13:05, landing into Portland at 20:30. The aircraft then night-stops at the Oregon hub, departing back to Kahului at 08:00 and landing at midday. The 4,120-kilometre route is already flown by Alaska Airlines which provides a twice-daily rotation on the airport pair when referencing OAG schedules.
