Hawaiian Airlines to launch longest U.S. domestic flight
Hawaiian Airlines announced a nonstop service between Honolulu and Boston, upcoming in April 2019. The flight, covering 5,095 miles (approx. 8,200 kilometers), is the longest regular domestic route in the United States.
Announced on September 13, 2018, the new Hawaiian Airlines schedule is to be launched on April 4, 2019.
The flights between Logan International Airport (BOS) in Boston and Honolulu International Airport (HNL) will last 10 hours and 15 minutes (to Boston) and 11 hours 40 minutes (to Hawaii), making them the longest regularly scheduled domestic route in the United States, as the carrier points out.
The new route tops current longest domestic routes that, unsurprisingly, also connect the capital of Hawaii with major cities in the East Coast of the U.S.: Atlanta, New York City and Newark.
Hawaiian Airlines is going to use a 278-seat Airbus A330 widebody for this new five-day-a-week service.
The carrier estimates that currently approximately 500 people fly between eastern New England and Hawaii islands on “any given day”, making Boston “the largest U.S. market without nonstop service to Hawaii”. It also accounts, that BOS-HNL market generated about $76 million in ticket sales in 2017.
