Hawaiian Airlines offers new option for Aussies wanting to fly Vegas to Maui

Australians will soon have a new way of getting to Hawaii from Las Vegas, courtesy of Hawaiian Airlines.

The carrier has announced it will launch a four-times-weekly service between Maui and Las Vegas on 15 December.

On the new flights between Maui and Las Vegas, Hawaiian will welcome guests into the comfort of its A321neo aircraft, which features 16 luxurious leather recliners in First Class, 44 Extra Comfort premium economy seats, and 129 Economy seats.

Hawaiian Airlines has also announced it has commenced sales for two other new A321neo routes – a thrice-weekly non-stop service between Honolulu and Seattle, which launches on 7 January, and a seasonal winter service between Maui and Los Angeles from 14 December to 5 January.

The new flights complement the existing daily non-stop services offered on each route with wide-body Airbus A330 aircraft.

Commenting on the new services, Hawaiian Airlines president and CEO Peter Igram said: “Hawaiian has been carrying local residents to and from Las Vegas, and welcoming our Nevada visitors to Hawaii for over 30 years.

“We’re thrilled to once again offer the convenience of non-stop flights between the Valley Isle and the ninth island.

“We’re also excited to add a second Honolulu-Seattle flight and seasonal service between Maui and Los Angeles, offering our guests more options when traveling between Hawaii and the US West Coast.”
