Hawaiian Adds Honolulu-Salt Lake City to Route Map
Despite recent Pratt and Whitney engine woes, Hawaiian is adding a new route with its A321neo fleet.
On Wednesday, Hawaiian Airlines announced it will be launching new nonstop flights between Honolulu (HNL) and Salt Lake City (SLC) starting on May 15, 2024. The new route is scheduled to operate daily.
Hawaiian will operate the new route with its fleet of Airbus A321neo aircraft. The carrier’s A321neos have a total of 189 passengers with six premium recliners, 44 Extra Comfort premium economy seats, and 128 economy seats.
Recently, the Honolulu-based carrier has been grappling with engine issues on its A321neo fleet. Hawaiian joins a long list of airlines worldwide that have had their growth hampered as a result of recalled Pratt and Whitney engines.
“It is infuriating to think that this is going to be borne by the airlines that are operating the airplanes, and… the guests of those airlines who want to be travelling on those aircraft,” Hawaiian CEO Peter Ingram told FlightGlobal in September. This is Hawaiian’s first new mainland U.S. destination since it added Austin, Ontario, and Orlando back in December 2020, according to Ishrion Aviation on Twitter/X.
HA84 will depart HNL at 6:50 p.m. and arrive at SLC at 5:15 a.m. the following day, while HA83 departs SLC at 7 a.m. with a 9:55 a.m. arrival in Honolulu. All times are local.
Hawaiian will directly compete with Delta on the new route. The airline – which has a hub in Salt Lake City – operates a Boeing 767-300 on the SLC-HNL route.
“We know this new route will excite travelers in both Utah and Hawai’i given our tourism and education ties, and shared Pacific Island communities. We are eager to strengthen these relationships when we launch our service next summer,” Hawaiian’s CEO said in a press release.
