Hawaiian Airlines will reinstate flights between Boston and Honolulu in December, the airline announced Wednesday.
The airline will operate twice-weekly nonstop service between Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport and Logan International Airport aboard an A330 aircraft beginning Dec. 18, after suspending the route due to the coronavirus pandemic. The flight is the longest domestic route in the U.S.
Hawaiian is also reinstating three weekly flights between Honolulu and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, beginning Dec. 15.
“We’re pleased with increased demand for travel to Hawai‘i, and we’re excited to once again offer our East Coast guests the convenience of our nonstop flights as we welcome them to the islands with new health and safety measures,” Brent Overbeek, senior vice president of revenue management and network planning at Hawaiian Airlines, said in a statement.
On Oct. 15, Hawaii began exempting travelers from its 14-day quarantine with proof of a negative state-approved COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the final leg of departure. Hawaiian is offering travelers a mail-in polymerase chain reaction (PCR) saliva test through Vault Health, which they can express ship overnight to a lab for results within 24 hours, according to the airline.
