Hawaiian Airlines to resume its pre-pandemic service between Tokyo Haneda and Kona on Hawaii’s Big Island, making it the fifth route between Hawaii and Japan served by Hawaiian Airlines.

The carrier will initially operate three flights from Kona to Haneda and back between October 29 and November 4, 2023, before running a scheduled once-weekly service from November 22, 2023.

Hawaiian Airlines intends to gradually rebuild the frequency to a thrice-weekly service as it operated back in 2016, when it launched the route, until March 2020, when the pandemic resulted in the route being suspended.

Along with its Kona to Tokyo Haneda service, Hawaiian Airlines already serves Japan with flights to:

  • Honolulu and Tokyo Haneda
  • Honolulu and Osaka
  • Honolulu and Tokyo Narita
  • Honolulu and Fukuoka

The 4,019-mile route between Kona and Tokyo Haneda is blocked at eight hours and 45 minutes and will be operated on an Airbus A330 with 278 seats, including 18 Premium seats, 68 Extra Comfort seats and 192 Main Cabin seats.

On Thursday, Hawaiian Airlines also confirmed that its long-awaited and much-anticipated Boeing 787 Dreamliner will finally take the skies in regular commercial service on April 15, 2024, on flights between Honolulu and San Francisco.

The Dreamliner will feature Hawaiian Airlines’ new Leihōkū Business Class Suite, which is based on the Ascent Suite by Adient Aerospace, set out in a 1-2-1 configuration, all with direct aisle access.

The aircraft has 34 Leihōkū suites and 266 Main Cabin seats, 79 of which will be dubbed Extra Space.

Hawaiian’s Dreamliner will operate the Honolulu to San Francisco service until May 14, 2024, before operating select services between Honolulu and Los Angeles from May 14 and between Maui and Los Angeles from May 15.

The carrier had hoped to get its hands on the first of 12 Boeing 787s it has on order, but delivery had been delayed until January 2024. Deliveries will continue through 2027.
