Hawaii for Virgin America

Virgin America is to expand its service to Hawaii with daily nonstop flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Honolulu (Oahu) on 5 May and to Kahului on the island of Maui 14 June.

These new flights add to the airline's recently-launched daily operations from San Francisco (SFO) to Honolulu (HNL) and Kahului  (OGG), allowing for roundtrip connecting service between HNL and New York (JFK), Las Vegas (LAS) and Seattle-Tacoma (SEA).

"Since we launched our Hawaii service last year, we've seen first-hand why it is one of the most popular leisure destinations among West Coast travellers.  The guest response to our new routes has been extremely positive, which is why we are so pleased to announce that we are expanding our nonstop service to the Los Angeles market," said David Cush, president and chief executive officer, Virgin America.  "This new service from LAX not only brings this world class destination to our guests in the Los Angeles area, it opens up a number of roundtrip connecting flights to markets across the country."

Last November, Virgin America introduced flights from San Francisco to Hawaii with a series of festive events, Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, joining the party.  Virgin Atlantic connects from Heathrow at both LAX and SEA.   www.virginamerica.com
