Boston Gets Its First Aloha
This historic, upcoming flight service is a first in US aviation history. Hawaiian Airlines just announced it's introducing the longest non-stop flight service in the US. Non-stop Boston to Honolulu. The 5,095 mile trip starts daily service in April 2019, 5 days a week.
Time and Distance
Boston has been the only major US city without direct, nonstop service to Hawaii. To initiate it, Hawaiian Airlines will use an Airbus A 330 aircraft. Boston to Honolulu will take 12 hours nonstop. Honolulu to Boston 10 hours non-stop. For the airline, the market potential right now is 500 passengers who go between eastern New England and Hawaii everyday. That's a market that could grow. Interesting and historic innovation in the airline industry.
