Hawaiian Airlines will commence new daily nonstop flights between Honolulu and Salt Lake City (SLC) starting 15 May 2024. Hawaiʻi’s hometown carrier will welcome guests flying between Utah and Hawaiʻi onboard its 189-seat Airbus A321neo aircraft.
“We know this new route will excite travellers in both Utah and Hawaiʻi given our tourism and education ties, and shared Pacific Island communities. We are eager to strengthen these relationships when we launch our service next summer,” said Peter Ingram, CEO and President of Hawaiian Airlines.
Utah has one of the highest concentrations of Pacific Islanders in the country with about 60,000 residing in the state. Salt Lake City becomes Hawaiian’s 16th gateway city in the continental US, the most of any carrier serving the islands.
HA84 will depart HNL at 6:50 pm and arrive at SLC at 5:15 am the following day. HA83 departs SLC at 7 am with a 9:55 am arrival at HNL – allowing guests to maximise their first day at either destination.
“Hawaiian Airlines’ expanded service is a response to meaningful demand from one of our top 20 U.S. markets, and provides more opportunities for our kamaʻāina to travel and for friends and family members to return to Hawaiʻi,” said Daniel Nāho’opi’i, Hawai’i Tourism Authority’s interim president and CEO.
“We appreciate Hawaiian Airlines and its longstanding commitment to serving the people of Hawai’i and bringing mindful visitors to our state.”
Also today, Hawaiian announced it will expand service in Sacramento (SMF) with four weekly flights to Līhuʻe (LIH) on Kauaʻi, starting 24 May, and three weekly flights to Kona (KOA) on the Island of Hawaiʻi, effective 25 May. Both routes, will also be operated with A321neo aircraft, complement Hawaiian’s existing services connecting SMF with HNL and Kahului (OGG) on Maui.
