United Airlines Says Aloha to More Hawaii, Increases Service to 40 Daily Flights

Celebrates 70 years of service to Hawaii by adding more ways get to the Hawaiian Islands than any other airline
June 13, 2017

CHICAGO, June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines (UAL) today announced an increase of service on 11 routes connecting the continental U.S. and Hawaii, offering customers more flights between the mainland and the Hawaiian Islands than any other carrier.

Beginning December 20, United will increase service from its hubs in Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco to Hawaii. The airline will continue operating its daily nonstop service to Honolulu from all seven domestic hubs in Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., plus Guam and Tokyo.

"As we celebrate our 70th anniversary in Hawaii this year, today's announcement carries a very special significance for our customers," said Jake Cefolia, United's vice president of Sales. "Our customers have asked for more ways to get to Hawaii, and by adding these flights we are thrilled to make Hawaii more accessible than ever for our customers travelling from the Midwest, Rocky Mountain and West Coast regions."

Lie-flat seating from 5 United hubs

Beginning this summer, premium cabin customers on all overnight flights between Hawaii and Chicago, Denver, Houston, New York/Newark and Washington, D.C., will enjoy 180-degree flat-bed seats for a more relaxing and sleep-enhancing flight with custom-designed duvets and pillows provided by leading luxury specialty store and New York-bred retailer Saks Fifth Avenue.

Celebrating 70 years of service in Hawaii

The Hawaiian Islands are an important part of United's history. With the maiden departure of a United DC-6 Mainliner from San Francisco to Honolulu in May 1947, United played a major role in helping to make Hawaii an easily accessible destination for tourism and business. In fact, United's West Coast hubs in Los Angeles and San Francisco will remain the country's largest gateways for connecting customers to Hawaii, and in December, United's Denver hub will be another primary interior gateway to Hawaii, offering customers the ability to get to Hawaii from more than 90 destinations in the U.S. and Canada.

"United Airlines has been a leader in air travel between the mainland and Hawaii for 70 years and the airline continues to deliver positive benefits in our communities," said Ford Fuchigami, Director of Hawaii's Department of Transportation. "We look forward to welcoming more flights and visitors to Hawaii and another 70 years of partnership."

"This combination of increased and enhanced service by United Airlines is fantastic news for Hawaii's tourism industry, especially with the number of direct flights being added to Maui, Kauai and island of Hawaii," said George D. Szigeti, President and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism Authority. "United's customers anywhere in the nation will have easy access to all of Hawaii's major islands and be able to experience our aloha spirit and diversity of culture and natural beauty statewide."
