Hawaiian Airlines launched the US’ longest non-stop domestic route on 4 April, a result of it launching flights between Honolulu and Boston, an airport pair which spans 8,195-kilometres. Seen speaking at the launch event in Boston is Hawaiian Airlines’ President and CEO Peter Ingram. The route operates in codeshare with JetBlue Airways.

  • Hawaiian Airlines launched the longest domestic route in the US on 4 April, the day in which the carrier inaugurated a five times weekly service between Honolulu (HNL) and Boston (BOS). “As Hawaii’s airline, we take great pride in sharing our love of these Islands, and as we welcome our newest guests from the East Coast, we are confident they will find that their vacation begins and ends with us,” said Hawaiian Airlines President and CEO Peter Ingram. “We also want to help Hawaii residents get to where they want to go, and we know that people travel to New England frequently.’’ According to the airline, which will operate the route in codeshare with JetBlue Airways, Boston was the largest US market without non-stop service to Hawaii, with some 250 people flying between eastern New England and the islands each-way on any given day. The carrier will serve the 8,195-kilometre domestic route using its fleet of A330-200s, with the flight time ranging between 8 hours 30 minutes and 10 hours depending on the journey of travel and the weather conditions on route.
