Hawaiian Airlines Connects China

Hawaiian Airlines, the eighth largest carrier in the USA, has launched its first flights to China and signed a new codeshare agreement with Star Alliance member Air China.

 

3 Times Weekly Honolulu – Beijing

The Honolulu-based airline commenced a 3 times weekly service to Beijing from Hawaii, aimed at boosting the island’s tourism offerings to the Chinese market.

 

Flight HA 897 departs Honolulu at 0001 hrs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, arriving in Beijing at 0555 hrs the next day after crossing the International Date Line. Return flight, HA 898, takes off from Beijing Capital International Airport at 0105 hrs every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, landing at Honolulu International Airport at 1640 hrs the previous day, having re-crossed the International Date Line.

 

Hawaiian Airlines will fly its 294-seat Airbus A330-200 jet on the route.

 

Codeshare Agreement with Air China

In a further boost to its Chinese ambitions, Hawaiian Airlines will codeshare with Air China, placing its “HA” code on the latter’s flights between Beijing and Shanghai, Hangzhou, Guangzhou and Shenyang. The agreement is expected to provide traffic feed beyond the Chinese capital for Hawaiian, while also providing its own passengers connectivity to key Chinese cities.

 

In return, Air China will place its “CA” code on Hawaiian Airlines’ inter-island flights between Honolulu and Kahului, Lihu’e, Hilo and Kona.
