Aloha Airlines expands California service
The carrier is adding a leg between Orange County and Sacramento to get more use out of its plane
Aloha Airlines said yesterday it is adding a flight between Orange County and Sacramento in California as it bolsters its mini-hub at John Wayne Airport.
The flight, which will originate in Kahului, Maui, will stop in Sacramento before proceeding to Orange County.
Aloha has been flying daily Maui-Sacramento nonstop flights but is adding the additional leg to Orange County to get more use out of its plane and to take advantage of a new slot it was awarded at John Wayne Airport.
Aloha will begin the new add-on service on May 1. The Orange County-Sacramento legs will be offered six days a week.
Aloha began flying to Orange County in 2000 and now will offer six flights a day from John Wayne Airport.
Other West Coast cities served by Aloha are San Diego and Oakland.
"Aloha's new nonstop to Sacramento gives Orange County residents another reason not to make that awful drive up to LAX," said Thom Nulty, Aloha's senior vice president of marketing and sales.
