Aloha and Delta
add isle flights

Airline seats and connections between the mainland and Hawaii will increase this summer with new services by Hawaii-based Aloha Airlines and Georgia-based Delta Air Lines.

Aloha said it will start daily service from Reno, Nev., to Honolulu July 1, with a stop at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Calif. Aloha will use its long-range Boeing 737-700 aircraft, carrying up to 124 passengers. Aloha's existing mainland service includes flights between Honolulu and Oakland, Burbank and Sacramento in California; Phoenix, Ariz.; and Vancouver, Canada. Aloha also flies to the Cook Islands in the South Pacific and Majuro in the Marshall Islands.

Delta said it will resume its daily nonstop service between Atlanta and Honolulu on Aug. 1. The airline had dropped the direct service in April 2001.

Delta will use Boeing 767 airplanes seating up to 195 passengers. The airline already has a daily nonstop to Honolulu from Salt Lake City. Delta also has a daily one-stop flight from Atlanta to Maui, two flights a day Los Angeles-Honolulu, one a day San Francisco-Honolulu and a daily nonstop Los Angeles-Maui.
