Hawaiian Airlines Seeks Immediate Award Of Tokyo-Honolulu/Kona Route

Published on : Friday, May 6, 2016

hwHawaiian Airlines, Inc. has asked U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx to immediately approve its application to provide split service between Honolulu, Kona and Haneda Airport in Tokyo.

In a motion filed yesterday afternoon, Hawaiian pointed out that it was the only applicant for the single available night-time frequency to serve Haneda Airport that will be available to U.S. airlines when a February 2016 agreement between the U.S. Government and Japan takes effect later this year.

The Honolulu/Kona service would be the second Haneda route operated by Hawai’i’s flagship airline, joining the successful Honolulu-Haneda daily service Hawaiian inaugurated in November 2010. The airline has also sought confirmation that it will continue to operate its existing service during the daytime hours under the latest agreement.

“It is long-standing DOT practice to grant an airline a route when no other airlines are competing for the same limited opportunity,” noted Mark Dunkerley, president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines. “When you couple the lack of other applicants with our demonstrated knowledge of the Japanese market, it is clear that granting Hawaiian the right to operate this lone night-time slot from Haneda to Kona and Honolulu is in the best interest of the United States and the traveling public.”
