Hawaiian Airlines announced Tuesday that it will soon begin daily, non-stop flights to Honolulu from Long Beach Airport.
The service, which is set to begin on June 1, will feature a new Airbus A321neo aircraft, which the airline said is among the quietest and most efficient aircraft currently flying.
"We are thrilled that Hawaiian Airlines has selected Long Beach Airport as a new way to get to Honolulu and connect to nearby islands," Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia said. "There's now no easier way to get to Hawaii than from ... Long Beach."
Long Beach Airport Director Jess J. Romo said the airport "now has one more non-stop choice to both a popular leisure destination and one that will offer connections to international markets like Asia and Australia."
