At 5,095 miles, Hawaiian’s BOS-HNL route becomes the longest regularly scheduled domestic route in U.S. history, according to airline officials.
Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker said, “The Commonwealth is excited to welcome Hawaiian Airlines to Logan Airport, providing a new connection between our states. This route will provide travelers from Hawaii direct access to all that the Commonwealth has to offer, including our nation-leading innovation economy, while also making travel for New England residents to Hawaii easier.”
Hawai‘i Governor David Ige said, “It’s important for our residents and visitors to have direct access to strategic destinations, and I thank Hawaiian Airlines, as our hometown carrier, for making it easier to connect with Boston and the Northeast.”
Massport CEO Tom Glynn said the new route is “Logan’s 76th nonstop domestic destination, and with New Englanders coming off a long winter this flight’s start date is worth the wait. Providing more options for passengers is our goal, and I expect passengers will love the Hawaiian Airlines traveling experience with all the airline has to offer.”
Hawaiian Airlines President and CEO Peter Ingram said, “We look forward to sharing our warm hospitality with our New England guests whose vacation starts the minute they check in and step onto our plane.”
Boston is the largest U.S. market without nonstop service to Hawai‘i with nearly 500 people flying between eastern New England and the islands on any given day. Boston’s world-class educational and medical facilities are among the many attractions drawing Hawai‘i travelers to the Bay State. This new route adds to Hawaiian Airlines’ global network. The market between Boston Logan International (BOS) and Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International (HNL) airports last year generated about $76 million in ticket sales.
To celebrate the only nonstop service connecting Boston and Hawaii, Hawaiian is offering special roundtrip fares of $617 in the main cabin and $1,776 in first class featuring luxurious lie-flat leather seats. (Tickets must be purchased by Sunday and are good for travel from April 4-30. Blackout dates for travel to Hawaii are April 12-14, and to Boston from April 19-21).
Starting with the inaugural flight on April 4, HA90 will depart HNL every day but Tuesday and Wednesday at 1:45 p.m. and arrive at BOS the following morning at 6 a.m. Flight HA91 will depart BOS every day but Wednesday and Thursday at 8:55 a.m., except for Friday flights, which will depart at 8 a.m. The flights will arrive in Hawai‘i the same day at 2:35 p.m. and the Friday flight will arrive at 1:40 p.m. Both HNL arrival times offer guests ample time to settle into their accommodations and unwind with a Hawaiian sunset, or connect to Kaua‘i, Maui or the Island of Hawai‘i via the airline’s convenient schedule of some 170 daily interisland jet flights.
Hawaiian’s Airbus A330 widebody aircraft offers spacious first class cabin featuring 18 lie-flat leather seats that transform into 180-degree beds at a roomy 20.5 inches wide and 76 inches long. Aligned in a 2-2-2 configuration, the seats are ideally tailored to leisure guests such as couples, families and honeymooners, while offering functionality to the business traveler.
