Hawaiian Airlines Announces Flights to Austin, Orlando, & Ontario!

Hawaiian Airlines has announced three new destinations

In a rather unexpected move, Hawaiian Airlines has announced new service to Austin, Orlando, and Ontario along with a new route to Long Beach.

Despite low travel demand, Hawaii remains a strong domestic destination for U.S. citizens, and this is thanks to pre-travel COVID-19 testing services that can exempt passengers from quarantine.

Hawaiian Airlines CEO Peter Ingram:

“We are delighted to bring our superior value proposition to travelers visiting Hawai‘i from Austin, Ontario and Orlando, while adding service to Maui from Long Beach. 2021 is going to be a special time to experience Hawai‘i, and we can’t wait to welcome onboard guests from our newest cities.”

The Four New Routes:


Honolulu (HNL) to Austin (AUS):

  • Starting April 21, Hawaiian Airlines will connect Texas’ capital with Hawaii.
  • Flights will operate twice a week on the Airbus A330-200.

Honolulu to Orlando (MCO):

  • Starting March 11, Hawaiian Airlines will connect Florida and Hawaii a nonstop flight between Honolulu and Orlando.
  • Flights will also operate twice a week on the A330-200.

Honolulu to Ontario (ONT):

  • From March 16, Hawaiian Airlines will enter another Southern California city, this time being Ontario, which will complement existing service from HNL to Long Beach and Los Angeles.
  • Flights will operate five times a week on the Airbus A321neo.

Kahului, Maui (OGG) to Long Beach (LGB):

  • From March 9, Hawaiian will introduce a second route to Long Beach following Honolulu.
  • Flights will operate daily on the A321neo.

Honestly, it’s surprising to see Hawaiian Airlines expand into more U.S. markets during these times, but with COVID testing, demand seems to be strong.

What do you guys think of Hawaiian’s new routes?

I’m happy to see that Hawaiian is expanding to more destinations!


This is really cool and a bit of a shock to me!! Im surprised Hawaiian will connect Orlando which is a heavy tourism market. Now I can drive 2.5 hours for a nonstop flight to paradise!!


I’m just waiting for @Suhas’s and @snoman’s reaction


Holy moly!!! Now I’m actually sad that the A332 won’t be added to IF, but this is AWESOME! Had to check it wasn’t April 1st lol


Paradise you will be getting a visit from me and @Suhas very very soon.
Glad to see that Hawaiian is expanding. Can’t wait to fly AUS-HNL.


These a awesome new destinations besides Austin!

I think this is also a smart move, I expect there will be a lot more people traveling come the spring and summer, but international entry might be limited

Finally! They ended service to ONT years ago (decades now…) and it’s awesome to see it coming back! Hopefully SWA will join in since ONT is one of their hubs

I’m waiting for them to come to Denver 😞

Same here, it’s just sad to see United having a monopoly on the Denver to Hawaii routes, which doesn’t really add variety to the route :(
