Hawaiian Airlines will offer first-ever non-stop service between Los Angeles and the islands of Kaua'i and Hawai'i, in response to growing demand during next summer's peak travel period.
New annual summer service will commence between Los Angeles and Lihu'e, Kaua'i four times a week, and Los Angeles and Kona, Hawai'i Island three times a week starting in 2014 from June 26 to September 19.
The new service will add more than 22,000 seats to both island travel markets over 12 weeks of service, and complements the new Oakland service that will also start next summer with direct flights to Lihu'e and Kona for 10 weeks.
"We are offering more options for Southern California travelers to book their vacation and experience Hawai'i's Big Island and Garden Isle," said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian Airlines executive vice president and chief commercial officer.
"We are pleased to be supporting both Kaua'i and Big Island's visitor industries with this new summer service and offering island residents direct access to Los Angeles."

The new Los Angeles service will be operated by Hawaiian Airlines' wide-body, twin-aisle Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. With the addition of the service, both Lihu'e Airport and Kona International Airport will have a Hawaiian Airlines wide-body aircraft arriving every day of the week next summer.
