Hawaiian Airlines has been recently looking for new local destinations in Australia, due to the partnership with Virgin Australia which has increased seats by 40 per cent since it began direct flights to Sydney in 2004 with four Boeing 767-300 services a week.
This month it started daily flights between Honolulu and Sydney and will increase its seat capacity by a further 11 per cent in May with the introduction of new Airbus A330-200s on the route.
Hawaiian has been building its brand in Australia and the chief executive, Mark Dunkerley, said “we are pleased with the reception it has received during the past seven years and the number of repeat customers choosing it over the competition”
And added “We’re looking at other Australian cities,” Mr Dunkerley told The Australian.
“Those aspirations will take a number of months, I think, before they come to fruition but we are very definitely looking at increased service to Australia.”
Hawaiian has been constantly increasing its capacities and seats with the addition of Airbus A330 aircraft and expects to further expand its horizons.
