Island Hopper Series Pt.1 (sponsored by Plane & Pilot) @ KLAX | 311700ZAUG19

United’s Famous Island Hopper Route - Part 1

About the Event

Hello! This event is the first of the United Island Hopper series! We will begin in the beautiful city of Los Angeles at LAX. LAX acts as a hub for united with multiple flights to and from the Hawaiian Islands each day. We hope you join us for this unique series to fly to one of the most remote areas in the pacific!

What is United’s famous Island Hopper?

United’s famous Island Hopper route began in 1968 as a route operated by the 727 between Hawaii and several small islands in the Pacific. The route is now operated by United using a 737-800 with 4 pilots and spare parts due to the remote islands. Due to short runways along the way fire trucks are often used to cool the brakes and tires after landing.
