Hawaiian to add Phoenix

By Lyn Danninger

Hawaiian Airlines will add Phoenix to its growing roster of mainland routes, the company announced yesterday.

Hawaiian Air The daily non-stop service to Phoenix begins Oct. 11.

Since the planned merger talks between Hawaiian and Aloha Airlines fell through, both companies have been busy adding new routes.

Aloha recently announced it would provide new service to Burbank, Calif. and Vancouver, Canada.

For Hawaiian, Phoenix is the third mainland route it has announced since the merger broke off. It will add service to Sacramento and Ontario, Calif., beginning June 7.

On March 15, the company began daily service between Seattle and Maui. Previously announced non-stop flights to Maui from San Francisco and Los Angeles will begin June 15.

With the new flight to Phoenix, Hawaiian will have increased its mainland service to 13 daily non-stop flights between West Coast markets and Hawaii.

Hawaiian plans to use Boeing 767-300ER extended range aircraft which seats 252 for the Phoenix service. By the end of 2002, Hawaiian will have taken possession of 11 of 16 planes it ordered for flights between Hawaii and mainland states.
