Hawaiian Airlines to resume some flights to U.S. mainland

HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaiian Airlines will resume some flights between Honolulu and U.S. mainland cities next month, after halting them because of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement released Wednesday, the airline said it will soon offer daily nonstop service between Honolulu and Boston, New York, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Jose, and Oakland.

It will also increase inter-island flights and service from the mainland to Maui, Kauai and the Big Island.

The airline has been operating on a once-daily schedule of flights to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle.

The new flights will begin in August when the state will allow travelers who have tested negative for COVID-19 to enter Hawaii without having to quarantine for two weeks.

International routes are still suspended.
