Starting December 14, Hawaiian Airlines will be running daily year-round nonstop flights between Sydney, Australia, and Honolulu.

This increase from five flights a week to year-round daily nonstop flights is in reponse to an increasing demand for its service to Hawaii from Australia.

“Australians are increasingly finding great value in Hawaii vacations, and demand for our services has never been greater,” said Glenn Taniguchi, Hawaiian’s senior vice president of marketing and sales, in a written statement today. “The arrival of another aircraft later this year will allow us to meet the increased demand starting in December.”

The company in April increased its Sydney flight schedule from four days per week to daily for the peak winter season and, because of aircraft availability, is able to operate five days per week between August 3 and December 13, and then start the year-round daily service on December 14.

Hawaiian’s Flight #452 will depart Sydney Airport daily at 9:20 p.m. and arrive at Honolulu International Airport at 10:10 a.m. the same day. Return Flight #451 will depart Honolulu daily at 11:50 a.m. and arrive in Sydney at 7:20 p.m. the following day. (Sydney is currently 20 hours ahead of Honolulu and the flight crosses the International Dateline.)

Hawaiian flies a wide-body Boeing 767-300ER aircraft on the Sydney route. The twin-aisle B767 comfortably seats up to 264 passengers with 18 in Business Class and the remainder in Economy Class.
