Hawaiian Airlines has announced some changes to its Brisbane-Honolulu service. While the changes will kick in only from January 8, 2020 onwards, it's always a good idea to be aware, especially if you have a penchant for booking your travels ahead of time.
To enhance connections for Hawaiian Airlines passengers flying from Brisbane to the carrier's 13 U.S. mainland cities, such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and Las Vegas, Hawaiian Airlines has revised its flight schedule for departures from Brisbane International Airport (BNE) to Honolulu's Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL).
Instead of the current 9.45pm, the Brisbane-Honolulu flight will be retimed to depart Brisbane International Airport (BNE) at 8.25pm effective January 8.
Also starting January 8, the flight out of Honolulu will be retimed to depart Honolulu's Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) at 12.35pm. The current Honolulu-Brisbane leg is scheduled to depart Honolulu at 1.35pm.
The decision to retime departures came about as Hawaiian Airlines wanted to let its customers enjoy enhanced access and connectivity regardless if passengers are traveling from Australia or the United States.
As it stands, the adjusted schedule will also let passengers flying to Australia take advantage of increased connectivity to Virgin Australia's domestic network beyond the city of Brisbane. In case you didn't already know, Virgin Australia is one of Hawaiian Airlines' codeshare partner airlines.
