Hawaiian Airlines will welcome Kiwis back with the resumption of nonstop service between Auckland and Honolulu.
Hawaiian Airlines said today that three-times-weekly nonstop flights between Honolulu (HNL) and Auckland (AKL) will resume on July 2, following a more than two-year suspension due to pandemic-related travel restrictions. HA445 will start service on July 2, departing HNL at 2:25 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays and arriving at AKL at 9:45 p.m. the following day. Beginning July 4, HA446 will depart AKL at 11:55 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, arriving at HNL at 10:50 a.m. the next day, allowing passengers to settle in and explore O’ahu or connect to one of Hawaiian Airlines’ four Neighbor Island destinations.
Kiwis will also have access to the carrier’s wide domestic network of 16 gateways in the United States, which includes new destinations in Austin, Orlando, and Ontario, California, as well as the option of a stopover on the Hawaiian Islands in either route. Since March 2013, Hawaiian has been one of the primary carriers operating service between New Zealand and Hawaii.
The airline will continue to fly the AKL-HNL route with a 278-seat Airbus A330 aircraft equipped with 18 Premium Cabin lie-flat leather seats, 68 Extra Comfort seats, and 192 Main Cabin seats. The new Travel Pono in-flight film, which debuted last year to encourage tourists to enjoy Hawai’i safely and respectfully, will be shown to passengers onboard Hawaiian’s transpacific flights to Hawai’i.
Arriving visitors to Hawaii must meet U.S. federal travel regulations, which include confirmation of COVID-19 vaccination and a negative test result acquired no more than one day before departure. Non-citizens traveling from Hawaii to New Zealand must show confirmation of vaccination and a negative test result before to entering the country, as well as take two quick antigen tests after they arrive. As they prepare for their trip, all overseas guests are encouraged to consult official government sources for the most up-to-date information.
