New York to Get Flights on Hawaiian Airlines

NEW YORK TheStreet) -- Hawaiian Airlines (HA - Get Report) said it will begin non-stop Honolulu-New York service next June.

The Honolulu-based carrier will operate a new Airbus A330 seating 294 passengers, with just 18 seats in first class, on the route. The service will begin June 4, 2012.

"We're the airline of choice for millions of people on the West Coast and in Asia, and we're excited to be bringing the Hawaiian experience to New York," said Hawaiian CEO Mark Dunkerley, in a prepared statement.

The flight will depart daily from Kennedy International Airport at 10 a.m. EST, arriving in Honolulu at 3 p.m. local time. Eastbound flights will depart Honolulu at 3:05 p.m. local time and arrive at Kennedy at 6:55 a.m. EST the following morning.

Hawaiian will take delivery of four new A330s early in 2012, bringing its A330 fleet to nine aircraft. In general, the A330s had been expected to be used for Asia service. .

The new flight means more than 107,000 seats annually to Hawaii from the East Coast, which Hawaiian said is the state's second-largest source of tourism. Aviation consultant Robert Mann said the flight should benefit from "significant New York tour operator demand," but noted "whether pricing is economic compared with available alternatives, time will tell."

The flight "would also carry significant volumes of AAdvantage frequent flyer award redemptions," Mann said, given American's (AMR)strong presence at Kennedy and its frequent flier miles agreement with Hawaiian. The American traffic could increase further if pilots were to approve expansion beyond existing inter-island code-sharing with Hawaiian. That expansion is a part of a contract that American has proposed, Mann said.
