Hawaiian Airlines Brings Hawai'i To New York's Doorstep

NEW YORK, June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Travelers were treated with aloha at John F. Kennedy International Airport this morning as Hawaiian Airlines (NASDAQ: HA) launched nonstop daily service between New York City and Honolulu. Hula and live Hawaiian music greeted customers arriving for Hawaiian's Inaugural Flight 51 – the first-ever daily nonstop service from JFK to Honolulu.

Hawaiian Airlines has also expanded its reach in the Eastern U.S. through new codesharing and frequent flyer reciprocity agreements with JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU). Beginning today, Hawaiian will place its HA code on select JetBlue-operated flights throughout the East Coast, and customers of each carrier's frequent flyer program will be able to earn and redeem loyalty points or miles for travel on either airline.

"There's no place like Hawai'i and for New Yorkers, there's no better way to get here than Hawaiian Airlines," said Mark Dunkerley, president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines. "Our great schedule, authentic aloha service and partnership with JetBlue will allow visitors to Hawai'i from all over the East Coast convenient access to their dream vacation."

Hawaiian operates its new nonstop service out of JFK's Terminal 5, JetBlue's acclaimed home, with brand new wide-body, twin-aisle Airbus A330-200 aircraft seating 294 customers with 18 seats in First Class and the remainder in Economy Class. 

Hawaiian Flight 51 departs JFK daily at 10:00 a.m. and arrives at Honolulu International Airport at 3:00 p.m. Flight 50 departs Honolulu daily at 3:05 p.m. and arrives in New York City at 6:55 the following morning. 

The Honolulu arrival and departure times allow visitors to maximize their time in Hawai'i, landing in time to check into hotels and enjoy a first dip in the warm Pacific, or to make easy connections to the islands of Maui, Kaua'i or Hawai'i, the Big Island. The afternoon return to New York allows a leisurely final morning on the beach before making connections or checking in at Honolulu for the ride home.

Onboard, customers will enjoy Hawaiian's signature "Hawai'i Flies With Us" hospitality, featuring entertainment and information that showcases Hawai'i's culture and natural beauty, complemented by inflight service that reflects the warmth and caring that sets Hawaiian Airlines apart as the premier carrier of visitors to Hawai'i. They will also enjoy complimentary hot meals in all cabins, an amenity not offered on any other airline serving Hawai'i.
