Hawaiian Airlines has indefinitely suspended its Honolulu-Brisbane service as the carrier works to rebuild its network in the age of COVID-19 travel.
The airline had been flying between Brisbane and Hawai’i since November 2012 but was forced to suspend all flights between Hawai’i and Australia in March 2020 due to government entry restrictions imposed at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This is a difficult decision, but like many other airlines we find ourselves rebuilding our network in a vastly different operating environment,” said Andrew Stanbury, Hawaiian Airlines regional director for Australia and New Zealand.
Hawaiian will continue to run its five-times-weekly service between Sydney and Honolulu, which resumed on 13 December.
According to the airline, demand for Hawaii and Sydney-Honolulu (with 278-seat, Airbus A330 aircraft featuring 18 Premium Cabin lie-flat leather seats, 68 Extra Comfort seats, and 192 Main Cabin seats) service remains strong and promising.
