In time, it’s expected Hawaiian Airlines will deploy the new aircraft on key long-haul routes, including Sydney, as Managing Director – International and North America Sales, Andrew Stanbury stated back in 2020.

Before his retirement in 2018, former CEO Mark Dunkerley had also previously expressed interest in longer-range aircraft opening up the potential of non-stop services to Europe. In addition to Australian gateways, the 787-9 would likely be utilised on Hawaiian Airlines’ key routes to Japan, including Tokyo Haneda.
