Hawaiian Airlines will launch daily nonstop service between New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport and Honolulu starting June 4, 2012.

"We are bringing Hawaii to New York," said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian's president and CEO. "We're the airline of choice for millions of people on the West Coast and in Asia, and we're excited to be bringing the Hawaiian experience to New York"

The new route will be inaugurated from Honolulu the day before on June 4, with the departure of Flight 50 ("Hawaiian 5-0"). Flight 50 will depart Honolulu daily at 3:05 p.m. and arrive in New York City at 6:55 a.m. the following morning.

Hawaiian's new flights from New York will add more than 107,000 new air seats annually to Hawaii's tourism industry from the Eastern U.S., the state's second-largest geographic source market for visitors.

Hawaiian will operate its New York-Honolulu route using its growing fleet of new Airbus A330-200 aircraft that seat 294 passengers, with 18 seats in First Class and the remainder in Economy Class.

Now in its 82nd year of continuous service in Hawaii, Hawaiian is the largest provider of passenger air service to Hawaii from the state's primary visitor markets on the U.S. mainland.

Hawaiian offers nonstop service to Hawaii from more U.S. gateway cities (10) than any other airline, as well as service to Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Australia, American Samoa, and Tahiti. Hawaiian also provides approximately 150 daily jet flights between the Hawaiian Islands.
