Hawaiian Airlines Resumes Service to Mainland
Following the lead of several legacy carriers, Hawaiian Airlines plans to resume most of its mainland US routes August 1, when Hawaiian entry restrictions are relaxed.
The airline suspended the majority of its mainland routes in late March after the 50th state introduced restrictions that effectively banned most mainland and foreign visitors to Hawaii. For the past 90 days, Hawaiian Airlines has operated three daily flights to the continental US from Honolulu - one each to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. While flying mostly cargo, some seating was also available to carry passengers. Last week, the airline restarted service to Portland; on July 15, service will resume to San Diego and Sacramento.
The bulk of Hawaiian’s flights will resume August 1, when the airline will restart flights from Honolulu to Boston, New York City, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Oakland and San José, CA. It will also restart some service to several points in California from other airports (Kahului, Kona and Lihue) in the archipelago.
All passengers will have to test negative for COVID-19 before departing for Hawaii.
